Ladybug and Bee were fighting over a toy.  Ladybug ripped it away from Bee who started crying.  They came to me to help them settle their disagreement.
Bee:  Mom, Ladybug took that away from me!  She’s being so mean!  She’s so mean that I’m just going to be mean right back!
Me:  Ok, wait.  We need to be kind to others even when they are not kind to us.  So…….
Tiger interrupts:  Yeah Bee!  You know, love your enemies!!!!
Ohhh that wasn’t quite the Scripture I was aiming for! 

I love all of our little conversations!  Have you had any fun chats that made you smile lately?
