Amber is the minion I feel like I have the least influence over. Then I catch her practicing her lettering and drawing tattoo designs while we all watch one of our very favorite shows - Ink Master. :)
Today, as my 10-year-old lamented spending his $53 on the wrong gadget, I "joked" that he should have spent it on someone less fortunate. "Like who?" he asked, "a poor kid". "Sure." He sat for a second and said "Dad. I've never seen a poor person". Being reminded your problems are small is a blessing.
