Millie (4): I'm a helper. When I see someone who needs help, I help them. That's the special gift God gave me. I'm a helper.

We've been watching a robin's nest and four eggs for the last couple weeks. To the children's great delight, two of the baby birds hatched last night. When we came home from running some errands this afternoon, we were sad to see that one of the baby birds had died. Millie melted my heart when she looked up at me with deep eyes and said, "This is so sad. We lubbed those baby birds with all our hearts." Precious girl.

Family conversation in our van today:
(Undisclosed child yells something unkind.)
Me: (child's name), Remember, Self Control means that you think before you act, and you make the right choice.
5-year-old: Think BEFORE you act? No, you ACT before you think. That just makes more sense.
Lucas looks at me and mouths: "We're screwed."
