It’s a big world!

Last night, we were eating dinner and I asked my kids how their day was. Violet used to opportunity to tell us a long rambling story about a good queen, a bad queen, some dogs and cats. After Ginger, her sister, complained that her story had too many “and then”s in it, I saw a “teaching moment” and asked Violet to tell us what the queen was doing with the dog. She made up something and, seeing my opening, I drove home the lesson. “You should try to include the other people in the story. They should do things together.”

She gave me a blank look. “No they shouldn’t. It’s a big world!”
