    OK!! We have a tradition of opening 1 Christmas present a night, starting about 3-4 days BEFORE Christmas. Usually it is because we have gotten something for someone and we are just dying to give it to them!!!!

    Tonight my son ( he is 10 ) brought me a gift and told me he wanted me to open it. I told that it was ok and I didn't have, to but he insisted. So I went ahead and opened my gift and it was a new pair of Nikes. Now I know your thinking sooooooo......but he actually thought about this. 2 week ago he went with me to the doctor, I went and seen a Podiatrist for heel pain. The doctor was AWESOME and "let" him take the x-rays and was great. Turns out that I have spurs on both heels and have plantar facitis. Well we ended up injecting both heels that day and was talking about the best shoes to wear. Now I LOVE my Nike Shox but he said they was not good for the way I walked on my feet and to get something with a solid heel pieces.
    I thought that my new shoes was the most beautiful gift I have every gotten. He went out and used his OWN money and picked them out, had them wrapped and gave them to me. I am just amazed by his thoughtfulness and I just had to share. [​IMG]
    Now if I can get his dad to think like that. [​IMG] J/K I got and egg turner from hubby!!

    Please share stories of your most treasured gift!!

    How sweet!! With all the bad raps on kids now days it is so nice when the good kids get noticed. My newphew is thoughtful and caring that way (he is 13) and he is my three yr old daughter's hero.
