Lessons Learned From My Kids
~Everything is better with cheese. Really. Even broccoli.
~Wear underwear at dinner. Then somebody else might help you finish the stuff you don't like.
~Don't mind the bullies. They either don't know you or were hurt badly by somebody else, sometimes both. The only emotion worth having towards them is pity.
~Be nice to grandma. (Even if she is your mother-in-law.) I know. Rough lesson to learn.
~Ninjas can kill anything. Because they are fast.
~Lots and lots of info about cheetahs. Which I have ironically forgotten right now. Maybe I didn't actually learn that. But they are fast also, like ninjas.
~Nobody really deserves to get what they deserve. Mercy is much nicer.
~A good hug solves almost any problem.
~Getting teeth sucks.
~The right shoe can make you faster.
~The best Christmas present ever: a harmonica. (Maybe this depends who you ask.)
~If you don't wear your underwear out in public- most people WON'T notice. Hmmm...
~If you have curly hair, you can get away with just about anything, because somebody will think you are cute no matter how rude you are being.
~You will never look better in spandex than you do at the age of two. And you can rock that skin tight look with a belly that hangs over your pants. When you are two. Sadly this is an age sensitive one.
~Babies are always a blessing.
~Whoever is most persistent will win. Intelligence, looks, education, all are not quite as important as persistence. (If you combine persistence with curly hair, you may end up with a problem. A screaming problem.)
~A kind word turneth away wrath.
~Forgive quickly. Forget always. Families are forever.
