The Polar Express

Today was Tyler’s surprise reward for receiving straight A’s on his very first report card.  He had the option of receiving a small reward that Friday such as a hot chocolate on the way home, or he could wait for two weeks and receive a bigger, surprise reward. 

My patient big boy decided to wait. 

In the process of waiting for something special, I wanted Tyler to learn the good old saying “ Good things come to those who wait.”  I wanted him to learn patience, that just because everything is at your fingertips doesn’t mean we have to have them RIGHT.NOW.  Not only that, but we created a memory today, and enjoyed some amazing family time. Win-Win!
