Oh, the lessons we are teaching are children. Here is a conversation that Andrew had with his daddy tonight while Chad installed three new light fixtures in our house. It was a very frustrating experience for Chad which required a great deal of patience and a trip to two hardware stores.
Andrew-Can I help?
Daddy-Actually it is really hard. I wish you could, but Daddy is having a really hard time.
Andrew-Daddy, I have an idea.
Daddy-What is it Andrew?
Andrew-If it is hard.....you can just do something else.
So why have I read him The Little Engine that Could over 100 times?
