Our 3-year-old grandson Alex comes up with the most profound comments. When an adult asked another grandson to stop poking or tickling Alex, they added, “Although he’s laughing now, if you keep doing it he’ll eventually cry about it. Alex immediately informed the adult, “I’ll just cry a little and then laugh again.”
Even at the tender age of 3-years old, Alex understands the wisdom of sometimes taking a little time to cry, and then to begin to laugh again.
