The other day we were stopped at a stop sign when Aiden saw the car in front of us giving money to a man standing on the side of the road. Aiden asked if we had to talk to the man too. I explained he was asking people for money. Aiden wanted to give him some, but I didn't have any cash. He then offered to give the man money from his piggy bank. I told him we didn't have time for that, so Aiden offered to bring it back at Christmas time.
"Why at Christmas?" I asked.
"Because I want to."
It was so sweet I teared up. I know money does not have the same value to him that it does to adults, but I was still impressed with his willingness to give away his belongings. Maybe he's not turning out so bad after all.
