    Default Well, he's not wrong...

    My son was trying to teach his 6-year-old the value of perseverance in the face of frustration and failure:

    DS: "For example, if you wanted to paint a goose, do you think it would look like the perfect goose on the first try?"

    6yo DGS: "Well, no. Besides, it will be pretty hard to keep the goose still."

    Ok so, well.....actually, in my head as I read this I was also picturing holding the goose still. So does that make me young at HEART?

    Besides, just how would you get a goose to be still? Libby/Sally, I'm in your young at heart group. Just my body...not so much, lol.
