A college roommate of mine was doing her student teaching. While she watched the second graders practice their writing, a little boy raised his hand to get her attention.
“Teacher, how do you spell ‘sex’?”
Startled at the question, my friend made her way to his desk and quietly asked, “What word did you want me to help you spell?”
The little boy replied, “I have the first part–I-N–but I don’t know how to spell the whole word–‘Insects.'”
Our preschooler, Morgan, really was excited about our new home computer. We didn’t know how special it was until we overheard her say, hugging her favorite teddy bear, “Oh, Grizzwald, I love you so much. I wish I could double click you!”
Thought for the day
God tells us, “A wise, mature person is known for his understanding. The more pleasant his words, the more persuasive he is” Proverbs 16:21
Nagging never works. You are never persuasive when you’re abrasive.
