We’ve had several conversations about the party with our boys. One of the best ones was yesterday in the car drive home from the hospital.
Mom: How was that? How was doing the whole service party?
6 year old: Y-E-S and N-O (he spells he answers whenever he gets a chance)
Mom: What do you mean?
6 year old: Part of the party was work.
Ahhhhh, and then a great conversation about what service is . . . how it is work, the kinds of work that it can be, and how that work can be hard sometimes.
AWESOME!! This is exactly the type of exchange I want to be having with my children.
