Life According to Ashlyn
The golden rule is big in our house. It's not uncommon for Zack or myself to be heard asking the kids to recite the golden rule in the midst of sibling rivalry (*gasp* our family actually experiences that?) or general strife. "Remember," we tell them over and over, "do unto others as you would have done unto you."
It's also not unheard of to hear one or the other of us adults issuing unsolicited advice such as: 'Never play leapfrog with a unicorn', or 'You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your friend's nose.'
So maybe it should come as no surprise that in the midst of a serious teachable moment I reminded Ashlyn to think of the golden rule. "I know the golden rule, mom," she replied. "You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your friend's nose."
Touche little one, touche!
