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.
