When my now 14-year-old daughter was 3 and her younger brother was getting into everything, she asked, “Mommy, can we put him back, now?”
Deciding to take this opportunity as a teaching moment in how siblings should treat each other, I explained to her that we could not put him back – that her brother was a gift from God.
She looked up at me with her big blue eyes and responded, “I understand, Mommy. God didn’t want him either.”
Anyone remember the good ol day, before Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter? When you had to take a photo of your dinner, then get the film developed, then go around to all your friends houses to show them the picture of your dinner. No? Me either.
