At Least I Haven't Done Everything Wrong

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." — Dr. Seuss (The Lorax)

Made another donation to the Red Cross today. I hope the money keeps pouring in to Haiti.

I told Jordan all about the earthquake and how the people of Haiti desperately need food and medicine.

She ran to her wallet, and came back and handed me six dollars.

"My tooth fairy money," she said. "Give it to the earthquake people."

My sweet girl.



Isn't she fabulous?

P.S. If you or your kids read Junie B Jones, please enter Jordan's first ever Junie B blog contest.

Yes, she is FABULOUS! How sweet that she donated her money. But, wait, how does she already have $6 from the Tooth Fairy? My Little Ballerina still has all her teeth. ;)

And, don't tell me your girl can't dance. I just saw it with my own eyes!

Aw . . . cute. Kids are so sweet when it comes to the things that matter in life.

Oh, and I loved the video. My kids actually drove me crazy by playing that very same song a hundred times today (hey, but at least I got some writing time in.)

Cute, cute!
