Katy Simcox and her 3-year-old son Maddox.
Katy Simcox, of Henderson, KY, balances motherhood with her job in a nursing home. Recently she took her son Maddox to a restaurant for lunch. "I was just listening to him and talking to him," she said, when a waitress came to her table and told her not to worry about the tab, because a woman sitting nearby had just paid it. Simcox thanked the woman, who said she'd never seen a young mother who was so caring toward her child. "Other moms can learn a few things from you," she said. According to Katy, "It's not the kind of thing you hear often, and it made me feel really good." The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, gave Katy her contact information and invited her to call if she ever needs extra support."
