My young children were digging in the dirt, and I was fortunate enough to overhear this nugget of wisdom spoken by my 4-year-old son:
“It doesn’t matter who has the bigger shovel because we’re working together.”
This is exactly the kind of attitude that can and ought to prevail in a plural family (or any kind family or group working together for a common goal).
Anything more I say will just take away from what the 4-year-old said, so I’ll leave it at that.
It doesn’t matter who has the bigger shovel when you’re all working together.
