After mama firmly says there is to be no watering her (yep, me), our Little Gal sets her sights on surprising her 12 year old brother with a shot of water from the hose.
She kinks the hose to build up pressure.
She cannot contain the giddiness (and a hint of an evil grin).
Ugh. Life is like that sometimes, isn’t it? You have the best of good enough intentions, and your plan goes awry anyway. No matter how well-thought-out, or how wonderfully kind and good the plan was.
It just doesn’t always turn out like you planned.
When things don’t go right for our kids, I often learn from their reactions. Little Gal’s lessons for today are:
1. When a plan goes wrong, lick it off…
2. And smile anyway.
