Emma admits she was “secretyly dreading” Valentine’s Day, but her son’s remarkable act left her in the best kind of happy tears.
With a fresh divorce under her belt, Emma Schofield admits that she was “secretly dreading” Valentine’s Day this year.
But all of that changed when her 4-year-old son Max blew her mind with a romantic string of gestures that started with a little teddy bear and ended with a jar of pennies.
Her viral Facebook post tells all. She wrote:
“I have always brought my son up to be thoughtful, kind, caring and appreciate even the smallest gestures.
After a quick grocery shop, my son told me to close my eyes (which I kept partially open to see what he was up to) and he proceeded to chose me a Valentine’s card and a small teddy bear in a gift bag. My eyes welled up as we continued to shop.
Today he took me to Pizza Express (of course I was the designated chauffeur) and wanted to treat me to a special meal. He also brought his jar of pennies with him.
After a delicious three-course meal, we went to pay. We were greeted with a waitress in tears who had watched our special ‘dinner date’.
Looking at her eyes welling up, I also began to shed a tear. She gave us our meal free of charge as a gift from Pizza Express in Torquay as she was so touched by what my four-year-old son had done.
This extremely kind gesture left me crying with happiness and holding onto my son with pure joy.”
Emma’s beautiful story has touched the hearts of thousands, and manyFacebook users have expressed their praise for the young boy’s chivalrous act.
As stated by commenter Sharon Wright, we’re so happy thatyou had the most special date, Emma, with the one boy in your life that will always be there.
So here’s to raising a generation of men who love their their mamasjust like Max, willing to give all their worldly possessions (i.e. that jar of pennies) for the woman they love the most!
