Who's Teaching Whom?

I know that "they" say that kids teach parents more than parents actually teach their children. I agree with this - I've learned a lot more patience, acceptance, and how to repeat myself ad nauseum without losing my mind. I didn't expect the teaching to be actual teaching, though.

Mom, we looked in the kitchen, in the office, in my room, in the bathroom, in your room... everywhere for my magazine. Where could it be?

I don't know, Babe. I think we have to face the fact that it probably got thrown out with the garbage. I think it's time to give up looking - it's gone.

But Mom, you know you have to stay positive! Positive, Mom! That's the way to be. You can do it! Keep looking!

Sadly that was not my voice speaking... I'm thinking it was thanks to her preschool teacher. Now I will have to remember to add even greater positivity to the list of qualities I am trying to cultivate. That's going to suck. Uh... I mean... what a fun challenge! I can't wait to try to grow my already somewhat positive nature into an even more positive nature. Hip, hip, hooray! Go being positive!
