Comments: Impromptu Birthdays

Your boys gave Jimmy a wonderful birthday surprise that he will never forget. I bet Jimmy talked about it all evening long! You've raised some great, sensitive sons Bou!!

That's a lot of huffing and puffing to fill all those balloons. I'm not sure my boys could have focused that long!

I love it. What a great story. I bet the boys were disappointed that they didn't get to pop the ballons but loved watching the truck get filled.

LOL - Happy Birthday Jimmy!!! That is excellent.

Looks like they saw all three aspects of a good workplace. That there is tedious stuff, cool stuff, and fun stuff.

Gives them some perspective on what to look for in the work world when they get older. I'd say they had a good "take your kid to work" day.

Be sure to tell that teacher what a marvelous time the boys had in finding compassion in the workplace.

I'll be sixty in less than three years -- and my office is soooo balloon-less.

I figure when I reach that age I'm just a big bag of wind, so just hand me a bag of balloons. I'll fill 'em myself... if I don't vapor-lock first.
