A young family recently moved into our neighborhood. The father is very recently widowed (his wife was killed in a tragic car accident on the way to their house closing), and has three young boys, age 5 and under.
Last night, he calls Lu and asks if she could come over and watch the boys while he ran to Wal-Mart. She dropped everything, and went over for about an hour and a half. She played with them, got them baths, and tucked them into bed.
When he returned, Lu refused to let him pay her.
What an amazing kid I've got!
RIP, Childhood Favorite
