Winning versus Wasting
The other day, my husband Tim and our four year old, Ben were working a puzzle together and Benjamin was saying that he is the best puzzle worker, even better than Daddy. I was half-listening as I worked in the kitchen and I said,“Oh I think Daddy is a really good puzzle worker, too.”
And he said, “Yeah, me and Daddy are the best puzzle workers, better than you and Abby.” So I stopped and asked, “Why do you have to be better than someone? Why can’t you just be good?
I looked at Tim, “Is this guy thing? And he said, “Yes. Yes it is. Because we don’t want to just be good; we want to win.”
