Meal-time conversations are always a learning experience. Example, the conversation I had w/my five-year-old this morning at breakfast:
5 Yr Old: I’m sad for the yellow shirts (team that lost a competition she saw on TV the night before)
Me: Why? Because they lost?
5 Yr Old: Yeah.
Me: (thinking it a great opportunity to insert a life-lesson) Well, not everyone can win. They had fun and they did their best, and that’s very important.
5 Yr Old: You know what’s more important?
5 Yr Old: WINNING!!!
Life lessons = overrated.
