I had many deep questions to ask this little one … how to make her Mom happy? … how to make people laugh? … what makes you happy? … but big sister hopped in and wanted to steal the bike. (As big sisters often do.)
For a moment, there was some bickering. (As sisters often do.)
I stopped the questions for a moment and decided to try and help bring about peace. As it turns out, my attempt for peacemaking brought forward the best answer of all …
Big sister said “please,” and all was well. One little word with SO much power.

Do you know a wise little one in the Hudson Valley, NY area? I’m currently looking for children ages 3-9 to participate in my life lessons series. It’s a great way to get a few complimentary pictures! (Plus, it’s fun!) Contact me for further details.
