The other day I was sitting and resting when Con came up and asked me a question. "Mom what do the kids who don't have any food to eat, eat?" Caught off guard by his question I asked him if he meant kids in other countries. He said "Yeah." I tried to think of an easy way to tell him without getting political about it, "Well that depends on if people are coming to aid them or not. Sometimes they get things like rice and beans.." Before I could finish he said "Let's go feed the kids!" I was so floored at the sweetness in that statement and the fact that he was thinking about others at such an early age. I told him that someday we will take a trip and do just that. The wisdom of a child! The love and thoughtfulness behind that statement was enough to keep me going all day! It is always fun to see where the next line of questions will take us. I absolutely adore my little Con, my little sweetie pie!
