    Having kids definitely fills your life with selfless moments.

    Molly, I think you win, though.

    Maybe we should chug on over to namby pamby land where we can find some self confidence for you, you jackwagon!

    I don't really have a specific moment, but I've been doing 75+ hours of community service a year for 3 years now.

    I'd like to think that I've done some selfless acts already but the "big one" is still yet to come. I'd hate to think at the age of 30, all my selfless acts are no longer.

    I... honestly can't think of a really selfless thing that I've done before. I mean, I've helped with autistic children, but that's because my little brothers autistic, so I don't think that really counts

    I don't think I ever did a big selfless things.....just lots of little random acts of kindness that brighten my day. Like giving away my shopping cart without taking the quarter (our supermarket has those stupid things that you have to put a quarter in to get your cart and when you return it you get the quarter back). I love watching people's faces when I say "nope, keep your quarter. Have a nice day"

    Ohhhh...when I lived in FloriDUH, I used to pay the toll for the car behind me sometimes. That freaks people out, but it was fun to do.

    I sometimes pay for the person in back of me too. One year when my husband and I were on our anniversary date some people heard us talking about it being our anniversary and secretly paid for our whole meal! It was about $100! We didn't know until we went to pay or we would definitely have ordered cheaper wine!

    So now I feel a responsibility to "pay it forward" but I could never afford $100 at one time so I do it in smaller increments.
