Sam'ism I

{Setting:  mySamuelson & Miss Gracie playing with a ball in our Den late one afternoon.}

Mom: "Make sure you include Punk and roll the ball to her, Sam."

mySamuelson:  "But she doesn't know how to roll it back, Mom."
Mom: "Well, teach her."

mySamuelson: "I don't know how.  I'm not a parent."

* Boy is that final comment packed with a child's persepective on "parenting", or what?!?!?! ;)


  1. Out of the mouths of babes! The logic is impeccable, however - keep on encouraging the kids to teach their siblings the things they know that the others don't. The saying that those who can, do, and those who can't, teach, should actually say: Those who know, teach those who don't! Ask Samuelson if he knows the meaning of the word Sensei, and if he doesn't, make sure he learns it. He's a great kid! Don't let him go on believing that he has to be a "parent" to teach what he knows - I learn from people of all ages, including little kids.

  2. Cute stuff! I love what comes out of the mouthes of babes!


PLEASE remember:
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." Proverbs 18:21
Take a moment and share some "life". :)
