The conversation on the way to school yesterday morning:
Me: "I'd like for you both to make sure you read your goals for this year when you get home. You need to think about making a plan to achieve them because writing goals down is good, but accomplishing them takes work. Remember what you learned at school, begin with the end in mind. And what do you do after you begin with the end in mind?"
John: "Make a plan!"
Me: "That's right!"
John: "How did you know that, Mommy?"
Me: "Because I know a whole lotta things."
John: "But you don't know everything."
Me: "True. But I know a whoooooooole lotta things."
John (giggling): "You don't know that I'm awesome."
Me: "Yes I do."
John: "How do you know that?"
Me: "Because you take after me!"
John: laaaaaughing and laaaaaaughing and laaaaaaaughing
If that isn't a great way to start a day, I would be hard pressed to say what is.
