Did you have a good day?
June 7, 2018

When Katie was little we used to do A Report on the Day. I wanted to show her how much more fun life is when you mark your lessons and savor the silly. She wanted to delay bedtime, so this was an easy sell.

If I had that little kid back for a day -- oh, how I wish -- I would’ve included a question about mistakes. I would’ve compared notes with her about the mistakes we’d made in the past twenty-four hours, and how much we learned from those.

Katie understood at a younger age than I did, though, that mistakes are a nonnegotiable part of a life that doesn’t bore you to death. That’s one reason I love this post so much -- and I hope you do, too.
