A little goes a long way. That has become a new motto in our house. I have found it has lots of practical uses and may be a good guide for life. My first use of the motto was for make up. Laci obviously doesn't wear make up but I started saying it when she puts on chapstick, her makeup. I figured it is never too early to learn that a little makeup goes a long way. Then I started saying it with the bubble bath. A little bubble bath can make a lot of bubbles. A little chocolate syrup goes a long way in the milk. Then Laci started repeating it to me. She really does listen to me! Tonight I was pouring her some juice. "A little goes a long way" she reminded me. We still mix her juice with water and she doesn't complain. A little juice goes a long way in a cup of water.
The next lessons that lessons that I hope she learns with this motto are how to treat people. A little kindness goes a long way towards people. A little thank you goes a long way. I'm sure that there are many more applications for our new motto that we will learn though the years. But I like the way it is starting.
