    Three days later DH was working, and DD and I were in the only "restaurant" somewhat near the hotel - another McDonalds. I ordered her another Happy Meal and I had a water. There was a small girl, maybe 3 or 4 in tears, with her mom in tears too. A man was sitting with them. As we passed by, DD asks me, "Why she sad?" I didn't know.

    We sat down, DD opened up her Happy Meal and saw she had another of the same dolls. She looked at me and said, "I have three, I go stop the girl from crying?" And before I knew it, DD was out of her chair, and over to the little girl with the new Happy Meal toy and gave it to her and said, "This for you so you not cry anymore." then DD gave her a big hug and came back to her lunch.

    She looked at me, gave me the biggest smile ever and said, "The little girl's not sad anymore Mommy."

    I just wanted to share. I'm so proud of my little girl.
    OK....that made me well up with tears. So sweet! Tell her everyone here is soooooooooooo very proud of her.

    How totally awesome! Children always surprise me with how open and observant they are! They show us some pretty good lessons on life!

    Bless her heart. That gave this grandma the warm fuzzies. Keep up the good work mom. I wish there were more children like this growing up.

    You have every reason to be proud of this compassionate, sensitive, and loving child. Kudoes to your parenting skills, as children learn what they live. :-)
    Bless you both.
