Be A Good Neighbor

Sarah and Gregory have signed a lease on a new apartment. They have been living in the basement since the end of April. It's wonderful to have such delightful children be around but it's time for them to move I guess. I'm glad they have had the time to be truly selective in their choice of apartments.

Last night I was on the deck eating a fudgesicle. Nathan, who is three, found me and sat down by me. "I want some" he said. I said, "Nope, not right now." He said three more times, "I want some...share." I said, "Not this time." Then he said, "Be a good neighbor." That did it as I heard Mr. Rogers singing his neighbor song in my head. Nathan was happy and he learned a lesson about sharing and so did I. :)
