  1. This is so nice, I must definitely make a similar list myself and start passing on the happiness.

    It was my friend’s dad’s birthday and the family went for dinner. The dad went to the bathroom and the mom went up to pay. The little brother went up with her and the mom thought nothing of it. Next thing he took the bill off her and said no no, I’m paying, and whipped out money that could only have been his confirmation money! Then he said, “don’t tell Dad.” How sweet and cute!
