Lessons from the Five-Year-Old

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?

Me:  What?

5 Yr Old:  WINNING!!!

Life lessons = overrated.
