It made me think about a post I recently read titled The Power of Expectations. In this post Dave Stuart talks about how his two older daughters were getting frustrated that their baby sister kept messing up their puzzles…until he turned it into a game called “Marly Attacks.” He then cleverly relates this game to our work in schools.
Here is how the post ends:

It’s part of the game.
I hope you can take the time to read the full post. Perhaps it will help get you through “one of those days” too…with a smile.
