He’s back again, with more pearls of wisdom that only a four-year-old could provide….
My son: “I don’t want to eat this, Mama…I don’t like it.”
Me: “Well, you don’t have to eat it, but that’s all you’re getting for supper.”
Son: “That’s okay, I’ll eat something else later.”
Me: “No, you won’t. This is all you’ll get to eat for tonight.”
Son: “I don’t like that idea, Mama. Maybe you’ll forget to lock your mind tonight, and that idea will fall right out.”
Me: “So, it sounds like I should lock my mind, so that idea won’t fall out.”
Son: “You can leave your mind unlocked until you forget that I won’t get anything else to eat tonight, then you can lock it…The rest of the stuff up there is pretty good stuff.”
