"Listen to your heart, don't listen to the shadows." My son said this morning over breakfast to his crabby twin sister who was picking at her belgian waffles.
I didn't think I heard him right - and I wasn't really paying attention because I was checking e-mail - but I thought my son said something that sounded incredibly deep and I was intrigued.
What did you say?
He said it again.
Where did you hear that?
No where. I made it up.
How could I not be impressed. It's concise and potent advice - from a 6 year old. Obviously, he is wise beyond his years. He gets this from my side.
If his next words weren't "poopity poop poop" I might take him more seriously.
I suppose even Gandi didn't always spout "pearls."
