My son and his Alexander Hamilton



We ordered Dominoes pizza the other night while my sister-in-law Cathy was visiting. After I placed the order, Bill and I realized the only change we had to tip the pizza guy was 24 cents from my change purse. (I had paid for the pizzas online with my debit card).

Panic.

Thankfully, Cathy came to the rescue with some dollar bills from her purse.

But, as Cathy was handing over the money to Bill, Porter chimed in and said, "Don't worry about it dad. I've got it."

Bill said, "OK" and handed Cathy's money back to her.

When the pizza guy arrived, he gave us our pizzas, and Porter handed him a 10 dollar tip. (Our pizza order was only $15) :)

The nice young man asked if he could give Porter back some change and Porter told him, "No thanks," with a huge smile on his face.

The pizza delivery guy had a huge smile on his face too. I think our 11 year old son might have just made his day.

What a sweetheart. Way to go Porter! And what a great mom to support that. I probably would have jumped in and stopped it. I love that you didn't.

THAT MAKES MY DAY TOO. It kind of remind me of something Bracken would do. I remember he would never even eat a candy bar unless he had asked everyone else in the house if they want it (especially mom).
Porter is a sweety.

Natalie, I echo what Jen said, you are such a good mom to not step in and say anything; it's no wonder your kids are so thoughtful and good; look at their great mom and dad!
