A conversation today between me and Little Missy about learning to ride a bike (She's six). Me: "Sometimes things seem scary when you haven't learned how to do them well yet. Remember when you were afraid to climb on the playground equipment? Then you learned how and now you think it's really fun." Little Missy: "So?" Me: "So when you learn how to ride a bike properly, you'll think it's fun." Little Missy: "And when you learn how to poke your thumb with a needle properly, you'll think that's fun." Pause, "And then you'll learn how to eat grass properly, and that will be fun too."
