A grocery store worker is getting a lot of attention for doing something special for a little boy who really needed some extra love.

The boy’s mother, Kimberly Grandinette, posted the photo to Meijer’s Facebook page. She said her infant son is in the hospital, and her three-year-old son is having a hard time with all the changes.

Kimberly wrote that she was telling her cashier, Kristen, about what was going on as she rang up their groceries at an Ohio Meijer store.

“Then my three-year-old son asked Kristen if he could help her ring our groceries,” wrote Kimberly. “She looked at my son and said, ‘Certainly’ and brought him behind the register with her.”

She said she couldn’t believe her kindness.


“She was so patient with him as she let him scan coupons and she made him feel like a million bucks. He skipped out of the store with a smile on his face,” wrote Kimberly.

In the post, she thanked Kristen for her kindness.

In the comments section Kristen’s parents expressed their gratitude.

“That’s my daughter,” wrote Carl Clark. “I’m so proud of her.”

Her mother, Diane Clark, expressed the same pride.

“I’m so thankful for her taking the time to make his day,” wrote Diane. “That’s how she is.”
