My willbesixbeforeweknowit year old son, the loving linebacker, JM, is learning to read and write in Kindergarten. It’s amazing to watch how his world is expanding. His little world of audible only words is becoming a greater world of written word. Couple those new skills with his God-given problem solving ability and you never know what he is going to come up with. Or when.
A small percentage of his original, oft humorous, offerings have made it to my quotes page as Markese. Read those in a moment.
His most recent, arresting pronouncement and the reason for my post is this:
Sometimes “s” can be a good thing. Like “friends”. You just add “s” and you have more friends.—JM, age 5
His world, though rapidly expanding through language, is still so simple. Add an “s” and get more friends. He is learning language skills. But that observation reveals so much more about him. What’s important to him. Friends. What we all need more of. Friends. What we could all be more freely for others. Friends.
JM’s childhood logic begs the adult question: If you could add an “s” to anything to have more, honestly, what would it be?
What does that tell you about yourself?
