Default Her first paycheck......

Here'* a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little 5 year-old girl and some construction workers that makes you believe that we CAN make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time.

A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot.

The young family'* 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers.

Eventually the construction crew, all of them gems-in-the-rough, more or less adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important.

At the end of the first week they even presented her with a pay envelope containing a couple of dollars. The little girl took this home to her mother who said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested that they take the two dollar "pay" she had received to the bank the next day to start a savings account.

When they got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed and asked the little girl how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young age.

The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with the crew building the house next door to us.

"My goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on the house again this week, too?"

The little girl replied, "I will if those a$$holes at Home Depot ever deliver the ******* sheet rock..."

One of my co workers has a little 2 or 3 year old daughter that stops by with his wife quite often. It always makes me smile to hear the funny things she says and things she repeats from her dad.

That'* adorable. That'* also my biggest obstacle knowing that we are bringing an innocent child into this world. I have an awful potty mouth and I will be the first to admit to it. I have been working on it because I know that if my children talk like that it will be all on me. Ryan doesn't swear much, only when he'* real mad. So I can see how easily kids are affected by the words around them.
