Side note: We feel so lucky to have such a friendly boy for a son!
Son: I have too many friends!
Mom: You have too many friends?
Son: At recess they all call me to play with them and I don't know who to pick.
Mom: That sounds like a lucky problem to have!
Son: I know how to fix my problem.
Son: I can pick a friend for each day of the week and play on that day.
Mom: That's a good idea. And maybe you could pick a game that everyone can play.
Son: That's a great idea! Boston says we can play 'duck duck goose'
Mom: Do you remember how to play that one?
Son, exasperated: Mom! Of course I do!
The more we can appreciate his strengths, the happier we all will be.
I wish I would only focus on my strengths! Too often I only focus on my weaknesses and then I feel cruddy.
So today, only think about strengths. Worry about the weaknesses some other day.
