At lunch today...
Me: How was your morning?
Mischief: Great! I played soccer at recess!
Me: That sounds like fun! How'd you do?
Mischief: We scored ten times!
Me: Wow! Your team scored ten goals?!
Mischief: Not my team, WE scored the goals.
Me: We who?
Mischief: All of us
Me: Don't you guys play on teams?
Me: How do you know who to pass to or who you are playing against?
Mischief: We aren't against, we're for everybody. We pass to whoever we want to, especially if its a kid who hasn't kicked the ball in a while.
Me: What if that kid isn't very good at soccer?
Mischief: That doesn't matter. Its more fair if everyone gets a chance. Besides we can help.
Me: Well, what about cheering?
Mischief: We cheer for everybody.
Me: Even if they don't score?
Mischief: Yep, cause at least they tried.
Me: Is this how your teacher wants you to play?
Mischief: (shrugs) I dunno. Its just how we play.
Life Lesson: Be for everyone and against no one. Include as many as possible, help those who are having a rough time and cheer for everyone...win or lose.
