The Right Thing

We recently had a talk with Landon about making good choices and doing the right thing. When he got home from school yesterday, he told me,"Mommy, I'm trying hard not to do bad things". I asked him what he meant and he explained that his teacher told the class that anyone who got 100% on their spelling test could get a piece of candy from the treat box. He had missed one word. He actually picked a piece out of the box but then he said he thought about it and he knew it was wrong so he put it back. Anyone who knows Landon's love for food, esp candy knows this was a big thing for him. I told him how proud I was of him for doing the right thing. I just pray he remembers this lesson!


  1. Oh how sweet! I think it is great that he is taking to heart what you said and is listening. Great parenting! LOVE that you have 5 boys like me! :)

  2. That's awesome! Its so hard to teach them these lessons!!
