So it wasn't in one ear and out the other after all! lol

Just when you start to question your parenting skills, something happens and let's you know everything is going to be just fine! My son Jimmy (14 yrs old) found the new neighbors IPOD laying out in the grass, and even though a thunderstorm is rolling in, he ran to the neighbors house to see if it was indeed their IPOD and returned it. I'm wondering how many teenage boys would be honest enough to return an "expensive must have" back to its rightful owner.


The new neighbor's 17 year old son was thankful to have his tunes back and for Jimmy's honesty. The neighbor boy gave him $10.00 for returning the IPOD. Two teenage boys, doing the right thing on their own accord........I know two Mother's who are patting themselves on their own backs about now! ;)

Children always makes us question ourselves and our vaules we try to enstill in them and when it comes down to it they remember and do the right thing. Kiss him for us and be proud.   hugs, Sherry

I'm back from vacation and just caught up with all of your entries.  I'm very proud of your son, as I know you are....it's sad to say, but many kids would not have been so honest.  You are doing a fine job raising your children Kim....honest, loving people.  I wish all children had such great parents, the world would be a much better place!

Take Care,

All the neighbors love him. The adults do anyway, the kids are another subject. LOL
