A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: 5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: 1.00
For going to the store for you: 0.50
Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: 0.25
Taking out the garbage: 1.00
For getting a good report card: 5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: 2.00

His mother picked up the pen, turned over the paper he'd written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you inside me: No Charge
For all the nights that I've sat up with you: No Charge
For everyday that I doctored and prayed for you: No Charge
For all the trying times: No Charge
For all the nights filled with worries: No Charge
For the toys, food, clothes: No Charge
For wiping your nose and face: No Charge
Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is: No Charge

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said, "Mom, I sure do love you." And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: "PAID IN FULL".
