Lillitha is Beaming with Generosity

Lillitha helps load the washer and dryer. Her compensation is all of the change we pull out of pockets. This early morning she has decided that she is going to buy everyone ice cream when the Ice Cream man arrives later today with her 75 cents. She plans on purchasing a Batman ice cream for Nishan, 2 Ice Cream Sandwiches for her daddy and I. She declares that, "Ice Cream Sandwiches are for boys, they are boy colors." Of course she is going to also treat herself and her sissy Coral. We will have to wait and see how all of this pans out when the Ice Cream man arrives. I best be making sure I have a little bundle of change to handover when we here him coming, as the kids do not like momma to tag along.

I really cannot remember any time Lilltiha has not thought of her sister and brother. No matter if they are with her or not, she wants them to be included in what is going on. It may be as simple as purchasing 2 extra packs of gum, or asking the Dr. for 2 extra stickers for Nishy and Coral or as complex as needing to bring home a Hot Chocolate for the olders kids that we will not see for a hours, and when we do see them it will be cold or have spilled all over our cup holderless car. And than there is the time when she wanted to buy them each a little of this and a little of that, combining to a mere $50. Whoa, Ahhhh...but the generosity that she has. So, what to do, what to do. I am in the midst of figuring out how to 100% support her generosity, without breaking the pocket book.
