My son has been asking to have a surprise day. Meaning a day we can go bring surprises to people of his choosing. I made that promise and today was that day. (Of course another scorching HOT day. I have already mentioned I don't care for the heat.) His thoughtfulness just makes me choke up thinking about it.
First, he wanted to bring flowers to his friends. I told him the thought was great, but most of them would be in school and 3 & 4 yr old boys probably wouldn't appreciate the flowers so much. Peter quickly pointed out "thems moms do." Off we went to buy flowers. He told me that we needed to buy lots, because he wanted to surprise LOTS of people. ( My eyes got a bit misty.)
That was our day. Peter telling me who he wanted to give flowers to and I drove him there. After every flower he would say "That made thems so happy! Let's do more!" At one point he told me I might need to buy more flowers. There are several more people he wants to give flowers to, but timing for us/them was off. As I pulled into the driveway this afternoon he told me today made him really happy. I asked why? Peter "cuz I gave people smiles." (Yep, I cried again.)
