On my Beloved’s trip back to Maryland with our son Brian and his family to help them navigate airports and the myriad challenges of traveling with twin three-year olds and an eight month-old, she received excellent advice:
Three-year-old Alex said to her with a serious look on his face, “You know, you shouldn’t stick out your tongue because bugs would land on it and it would be yucky.”
It’s amazing the things we learn from our grandchildren.
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
he is wise and practical. every family needs at least one.
Yup! I wondered why my tongue kept having bugs use it as a landing strip. Now I know.
He would be great as an advice columnist Russ!
I agree! He’s full of such practical, no-nonsense, entertaining advice.
The best kind of advice.
True. I get the impression he spoke from experience and was trying to save her from a similar fate.
Advice from experience tends to be better. 😉
Good advice. 😁
Hi, Patti. It’s good to hear from you. May you always feel welcome here.
Young children are amazing
They are indeed. I learn more from them every year.
What fun, yes I think he spoke out of experience.
