10 Lessons Learned from Children

I spent last evening with a four-year-old and a two-year-old. There were a few good lessons learned in the course of two hours:

- Small children can produce amazing amounts of drool and will wipe it on everything. EEW.
- Just when you think children are about to calm down, they may suddenly become hyper.
- The best object to throw at someone is any object within reach.
- It is not acceptable to take up the couch space that a small child wishes to inhabit.
- The amount by which it is easy to break any object is proportional to the amount that a child will want to grab the object and send it crashing to the floor.
- Grandma's homemade chocolate chip cookies make both children and adults happier. :)
- "Let's see who can be quiet the longest:" genius!
- Big brothers have nothing on little sisters. Girls win every time...
- The best toys for kids are the most simple: a blanket, a cardboard box, Legos, etc.
- "No" is an incredible tool if use correctly. Wow.

The kids were so much fun! Mr. Wonderful and I enjoyed our visit with my cousins and their children at Grandma's last night, and I hope we're able to visit again soon.
