The other night we had our first family meeting. To begin with, we designated a wooden flute as our talking stick. Right away, our 5-year old raised his hand.
Here's the stick, what would you like to say?
"I love you Daddy."
Great. Next up...yes, Baby Girl?
Thus went the whole meeting. We covered maybe 5 minutes of what we wanted to talk about. Then we gave up and played Go Fish.
