    Default Proud moment I wanted to share

    Lately I have been thinking and feeling that my children were getting a little to spoilt. Between DH and I, my parents and their aunts and uncles they have everything they could ask for and after a little spat when I said no to something I really started to wonder if I had made a big mistake and let them get this way. My mind was soon put to ease when my older 2 children came to me each with a box of toys and asked if I could put them up for sale on our local Facebook buy, swap and sell page. I asked them why and their answer made me want to cry, they want to raise money to buy presents to put under the smiths family Christmas trees at the shops so some children who don't have what they do could get some really "cool" gifts

    That's awesome!!
    Best advice someone told me is once my child gets a toy, he should donate an older toy to charity. I sort of took that advice on, but I do a cull every 3 months and especially after his birthday and Christmas
