Excellent Advice from a 3-Year Old

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.

With Love,
