Tonight, at dinner, we were talking about impulse control and why it’s important. Then, it occurred to me, as it often does, that the girls may not understand the concept of impulse control.  

They might not even understand “impulse”; why would they at age 4/ 7?  So we got into explaining that. But the girls got it, eventually. 

And that’s when Abbey, as she is prone to do, came up with a quote (as she is prone to do). She has a way with words, and when she really gets a concept, she can actually be quite eloquent. The way she put it (and she came up with it herself, instantaneously), sounded so good that it brought a smile to our faces. 

I liked her phrase so much, we decided to make a little poster out of it.
