Everyone Has To Save The Planet Says 3 Year Old

My soon to be 4 year old wants to save the planet. I love that she is showing interest in our planet and all living things.

Today we were walking from school to the library and she took a sticker off her jacket.

Goddess: "I don't want this sticker anymore" she said as she rolled it up.

Me: "Ok, honey. Don't throw it on the ground. Give it to me and we will throw it in the garbage can."

Goddess: "We can't throw it on the ground because we would be like other people. We have to protect our planet. It is our Earth, we need to take care of it."

Me: Bending down to hug her, "Yes sweetie. You are right!"

Then we walked on, as my smile beamed.

It is the little lessons. Everything can be a teaching experience and they don't even know they are being taught. Sometimes, we don't even know we are teaching.

These are the moments that make it all worth it.
