While I was cooking dinner one night, I heard the kids arguing in the other room. They were fighting over who got to play with the slinky. As I walked in the room where the argument was reaching a boiling point, I saw they each had an end and it looked like they were playing tug of war with the slinky. I am sure you can imagine what happened next. It snapped in half. My first thought was “Time for the garbage.” My six year old son had a different ‘spective.

“Perfect. Now we each have a slinky!”

Sometimes, children can be so wise!
