I read the other day, if you tell your kid something 1,000 times and they still don't get it, they're not the one who has trouble learning. I thought that was a good life lesson.
Every day with Buddy I learn something. Lots of times, it's as simple as I can't believe a person so little could bring so much joy into the world. Sometimes I learn a new word. The other day, on our Trader Joe's we rode the alligator down to the first floor. She teaches me how to fly like a bird.
Not everything I learn every day is so good. I'm learning a lot in listening to Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and much of it has left me reeling.
I also learn often how poorly people drive.
