The other day I was met by a happy, colorful patch of crayon art on the kids’ play room carpet. Upon questioning the two, Bunny girl owned up to trying to add a little life and color to that area in the room.
We agreed that her punishment would be to scrub and clean the patch with soapy water. We thought the punishment would be carried out with a hushed, dismal, demeanor…but we were wrong.
A few minutes into the chore, we heard excited giggles and laughter. Peeping into the room, we saw Bunny girl had roped in a little assistant and both were actually having a ball, singing and cleaning that colorful patch. Why they were having so much fun that they ended up cleaning a whole strip in the carpet!



Children are LEMONADE MAKERS…follow their example with those lemons life dishes out to you!

    Kids have such a great outlook on things. We are supposed to teach them but we learn a lot from them as well!

    Kids really love to enjoy and play. They want to do a lot of things that can be able to make their heart satisfy. Indeed, it is really nice to be a kid.
