Little ones have lots to say. At LifeWays, we hear some very
interesting things from the mouths of babes.
Insightful, brilliant, silly and strange – we hear it all!

All in a day's progress
at Lifeways are pithy communications, formative wisdom, and profound
revelations. Truly, we are a model community. Recent examples:
One Tuesday last
month this exchange happened at the Woodland table. It passed
between two toddlers seated side by side. With heads close, they
watched one another unwaveringly. In all seriousness they took turns
listening to the other. Each intently nodding whilst taking in the other's
words, their satisfaction was most evident. And not one word of it
in English- all of it was total babble!
And from a teary-eyed
little one, "I bit my finger and it doesn't feel good!"
“Your sister looks like
a flower 'cause she has lots of petals on her dress!”
While filling in the
daily attendance log, a caregiver asked the time. The preschooler funneling
sand just to his left responded promptly, "Thirty five."
