13-Year-Old Boy Buys His Struggling Mom A Car By Trading His Xbox And Doing Yard Work
I'd say I was a pretty good kid growing up. I helped my mom around the house whenever she asked me to, I worked fairly hard to get decent grades, and I never got into trouble at school.
That being said, I certainly didn't go to the lengths that this one kid from Nevada went to - and all so he could put a smile on his beloved mom's face.
Get this; the young boy bought his struggling mother a car by sacrificing his Xbox and doing yard work in exchange for the 1999 White Chevrolet Metro.
13-year-old William Rabillo's surprise gift moved his mother Krystal Preston so much so that she decided to share her son's incredibly selfless deed on Facebook.
"I have no words right now that can express how I am feeling at this moment," Preston writes. "I'm in complete shock ... The last couple of weeks have literally been hell filled with so many tears, anger, confusion, and heartache."
The doting mom had been going through a very difficult time and had no idea she was about to be confronted with the gift of a lifetime.
"Today I got the shock of my life," the single mother-of-three continues. "As some of you may know my son William, who is a lawn mowing, yard cleaning, money-making machine."
"Well, my son had a job today that he had to go do and so I allowed him to go assuming it was like any other time. Well, this time was different."
Preston then explains that when her son came home one particular day, he excitedly told her that he'd bought her a car!
Of course, Preston initially laughed at the idea that her young son could have bought her a car.
"Ya right!" she told him, to which he responded, "No mom, I'm so serious. I bought you a car. Come on we have to go."
"I'm at this point confused and sceptical," she recalled. "I said 'go [where]?' He said, 'With this lady.'"
And to Preston's immense shock, she went to her front yard only to be confronted with the same woman her son claimed would be giving them ride to her very own car. As sceptical as ever, she jumps into the car with William, still very much confused as to where they are being taken.
"No one speaks really [during the ride]," she recalls in the post. "So..... As I'm still thinking at this point still a joke. We pull up to this house and William says "Mom, that's your car....'"
Needless to say, Preston was overcome by emotion when she learned that her son really had gotten her a car. Preston then discovered that the woman who had given the ride had supplied her son with yard work in exchange for the grand gift.
But how exactly does a young boy manage to come up with the genius idea to get their mom a car without spending a fortune?
Well, he explains that he had watched a YouTube video in which those featured in the video bought their mom a car and then surprised her with it. "I wanted to do that," William said.
So one day, when he was scrolling through Facebook, he discovered a lady nearby who was selling a car.
"It was really cheap so I asked her if I could trade it or earn it, and at first she said no," he said. "After she thought about it, then she said yes."
Preston's wildest dreams had been realised and she was immediately handed the keys and the paperwork for the car.
"So we got into the car it started right up and off we went," Preston wrote on Facebook. "I am so proud of my son. He is such a good kid."
"He may have his days but OMG what 13-year-old kid do you know that buys his mom a car," she concluded. "William I love you son and thank you. You have such a big heart and I love you."
Imagine that! I can only hope I will get such a thoughtful gift from my own kids one day.
