 Advice On Love From Children: (can you still remember when this was us?)

  • “Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work.” — Dick, age 7

  • “One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills.” — Ava, age 8

This was great, I love kids, I can relate to the way they talk through their thoughts and sometimes I take things too literal kind of like Amelia Bedelia. I laugh so hard my stomach hurts. I agree with most of them, children are so wise. They just say what they see no sugar coating.
