There is a great new parenting site where all of the contributors are dads. It's called Dads RoundTable, but everyone is welcome. Some very talented writers who also happen to be some of my favorite dad bloggers are founding contributors. (I am supposed to be one too but I am horrible at committing to new things. All in good time, my pretty. All in good time.)
One of those dads and writers is James, who used to go by EduDad. Unlike me, he has committed fully to DadsRT from the beginning. He even changed his moniker to James EduDad of the Round Table. He's a teacher, a musician, a dad of two and one hell of storyteller.
Here is part of the story he shared this week about one of the students in his class, whom he suspected of stealing from a jar meant for charity:
I was returning to my class from the teachers’ lounge before the bell in order to greet students as they returned: aka, manage chaos. To my surprise a student was already in the class.... He wasn’t the most honest kid and when I saw the $20 bill in his hand my heart dropped.You need to read this entire story for several reasons. First, James tells a great little tale from start to finish. Second, the finish. The finish is amazing. And third, it's one of those Christmas stories that just makes your day, and gives you faith in humanity. Please click here to visit DadsRT and read the rest. You will be glad you did.
And make sure you follow DadsRT on Facebook and Twitter. I PROMISE I will be a contributor some day... next year. (Wink.)
