Repentance or Something Like It

I suppose I am a typical parent in that I have assumptions that my child is often the worst ever... and at other times, simply more amazing than any other kid that ever lived.

I was complaining in my previous post about how selfish CheesePuff was for sneezing into my can of honey roasted cashews (I know there's a pun lurking there) thus making them inedible by anyone else. Today she has proven that she is mature beyond her years and that she can be one incredibly caring and giving human.

Today she gave of herself... literally. For another child in need. Today CheesePuff donated her hair to a program called Locks of Love. A charitable organization that accepts hair donations to make wigs for needy children who have lost their hair due to a medical condition. Puff made this decision completely on her own, despite much prodding to change her mind.


Am I allowed to cry for this loss?

She deserves much credit for being quite unselfish. For today, anyway. Tomorrow she may be back to her rascally ways.

Grommie, I have tagged you for a meme! I have recently discovered you and would love to learn a bit more about you. It's a fun meme and we get to know ltittle more about the women behind the cheese! Check my blog to see how it's done. Email me if you have questions!

The meme map at delicious days is getting MIGHTY long... I hope I can find some unsuspecting... er... unsung blogger that hasn't already been tagged.

Yea Puff!!! You did a wonderful thing and you should be proud - I know all of your family is proud - besides - your new haircut is adorable - just like you. Some little girl out there is going to be very happy and will smile just like you did after your hair cut.
