Over the past month or so Mr 9 has been having a clearout. We decided to teach him the value of a buck when he decided he had a whole lot of PS2 games and DVDs that were just gathering dust. So he embarked on a sales campaign which netted him a fair bit of money.
Last week he realised that there were 6 or 7 PS2 games and about 10 DVDs not sold. So he decided to donate them to the Hutt Hospital's Children's Ward. After school we lugged 3 bags of his games, DVDs, books and transformer toys to the Children's Ward. The staff were suitably impressed and generous in their praise of his donation.
Walking home Mr 9 said to me:
"Mum - I didn't get any money for those things we gave the hospital. But I feel really proud!"
Yep - it isn't all about the money.
A good life lesson learned today.
