This is going to be the rules that my kids have while growing up. Know that you are loved. Dream big. Say I love you. Listen to your parents. Try new things. Speak kindly of others. Work hard. Share. Giggle and laugh. Keep your promises. Sing, laugh, dance. Do your best. Clean up after yourself. No whining. Say your prayers.

I know what you mean, said the little old man. Written by Shel Silverstein : The Little Boy and Old Man
