The school had their annual book fair last week. I helped the other Moms on Tuesday and Wednesdays. The school rely on volunteer workers to facilitate the school event s because there is limited employees there so we always make sure to make ourselves available for some events. Anyway, I gave both of my kids $20 each to spend. I can say that they both spent their money wisely. They both have a change after book shopping.
My son bought the World War 2 book, I asked him why that choice and he said that he wants to learn more about his Grandpa's experience during the WW2.
I felt bad for this one girl that I helped because she only got $5 and she wanted like $20 books. I was tempted to help her by paying the rest of the amount but the librarian warned us that years ago, she used to do that for the kids who doesn't have enough money but she stopped doing it because she got chewed up one time. A parent came top her and complained that if they want their kids to buy a book, that they will send the money.
Now, I was stunned that a parent would do that because the librarian just wants to do a favor for the kids but her deed was misinterpreted by a parent, oh boy. What is wrong with people these days. It reminds me when my daughter was in first grade, the teacher gave my daughter money because she wanted my daughter to buy what she likes in one event that my daughter did not plan to buy any. I did not mind the teachers generosity at all, in fact I was grateful that she did that because it made my daughter really happy.
