Excerpt from Kid Speak
The great man is he who does not lose his child's heart.
Two children were playing outside and the one year old mumbled 'bird' as a hawk flew over head.
The three year old looked up and said,
"Birds fly, mommy. People don't, but if you sprinkle pixie dust on them they do."
Children believe in magic; encourage their wonder.
"Is my hair curly? or is it that way because I get out of the shower and it curls? I'd like to have hair all the way down to my toes like Julia's. She has long, pretty hair."
"Your hair is beautiful, Norah. Curly and just right," her mother replied.
It's not about having what you want, but wanting what you have.
"I can't get married because I don't have a ring," the four year old announced to her mother.
"You don't marry until you grow up, honey," her mother answered, "and find someone special like your dad."
She paused then said, "I want to marry Daddy when I grow up."
Fathers are the standard for a daughter's love; be the best competition.
