I own a small business called Eternal Memory Candles. These candles are labeled in memory of "Mom" or "Dad", etc. A friend of mine asked me to donate a candle for a charity fundraiser and I happily obliged.
I left myself a post it note in the office that simply read "Donate - Dad" to remind myself to record the candle in my inventory tracking spreadsheet and to record the donation for tax purposes.
My 7 year old son was in the office and asked me what the post it note meant. I asked him if he knew what donate meant. His response was "give it away to someone who needs it". I told him that was correct. He said, "Are we giving Daddy to another family that needs a Dad?" After doing my best to stay straight faced, I said we were not giving away Daddy...it was just a note for the candle business. He was so relieved and said that it was good...because he really likes his Daddy and wants to keep him.
I can't believe my son thought I could give away my husband!!
