There was one cop who kept shining his flashlight directly at me and Ds : He was really trying to get a boob shot, and it was really creepy. There was a female cop there too, and she just reached out and grabbed the other officer's flashlight and turned it off. She asked me how old Ds was, and if we needed anything. The next day there was a box full of things for Ds and I on the porch from the female officer. The card said something about her thinking of us. Just typing that now I get all teary.
Anyway, does anyone want to share some warm and fuzzy stories about acts of kindness they've encountered? I love hearing those kinds of stories.

Thirty minutes later I was scared thinking about all the what ifs, near tears. He finally came home an hour and a half later and told me what happened.
He was on his way home leaving town when he drove past the mall and casually glanced at his window. He said he could tell that a woman was having car problems and was almost crying. So he swings into the turn lane to see what was the matter. Here the woman had a flat tire, to top it off she had four kids various ages running around and was "pretty pregnant" as he put it. The woman told him she didn't have a spare tire and then started really crying and told him she didn't have any money. So now my husband was in a predicament, what does he do? He calls and arranges for the nearest mechanic in town to come and fix her tire, its a Friday night and the mechanic says he couldn't get there for an hour. Husband says thats fine just do it ASAP. Then he loads her and all of the kids up and takes them to McDonalds, the one with a playground in it. He orders and pays for all of them to eat and sits and waits with her until he thought her tire was fixed. He drives back to the mall, pays the mechanic, and gives the lady $50. He said she was crying the whole time she was so happy.
So now my husband is home late minus the $150 we were going to use to go out to eat and he starts apologizing because he knows how much I was looking forward to going to eat at the fancy restaurant. : So then I started crying! Needless to say thats exactly why I wanted to marry him in the first place. And lets say I "showed" him..ahem...how proud I was of him that night.
Mooooom! to DS (1/05) and DSS (11/05). TTC our "ours" after VR on 10/12.
