The Rewarded Lil' Boy
Assalamu'alaikum. How was your weekend, dearest friends? Mine was productive as much as relaxing, so to speak but for my son, it was one brilliant heck of a weekend. Earlier in the half quarter of Saturday, he and his aunt had accompanied me to his school for the Report Card Day - a result of which made us proud. And that gave him quite a remarkable licence to ka-ching his long-awaited toy, some Kamen Rider's belt. I didn't really think it was a good idea but his dad was more than melted with his good result and somehow relented it, even with tight face (for me to notice). Well, at least the boy knew how much hard work to deserve such a big reward, that was his dad's justification.
And I couldn't agree more. Long gone was his preference for things like Spongebob, which of course would be friendlier to the wallet.
Today the boy woke up early in the morning for Fajr prayer and went to school with big grin on his face. Precious.
