Cale was telling me that he kept saying, "My parents buy me stuff all the time. I've got 3 hamsters, they buy me new shoes every month, I get new clothes every week. They're taking me to Six Flags as many times as I want to go this summer..."
And as Cale was telling me, I was fighting off the urge to roll my eyes. [Which is a hard habit to break, considering how much I roll my eyes. :)]
I don't like kids like that... but I didn't want Cale to know.
I told Cale, "I don't know why he's bragging like that, but don't let it bother yo..."
Before I could finish "you," Cale interrupted me.
He said, "I know why he's bragging. He's jealous! He sees what I have; and he wants it. I don't want all that stuff. I don't need that stuff. I have the best parents in the world. And that's all that matters. He sees how awesome you and dad are; and how much you love me. He knows he will never have that. He's trying to make me jealous of him because he's jealous of me."
Dang, that kid continuously knocks me off my feet.
He has so much wisdom to be so young... and little.
He gets it.
I am so thankful for him.
