Favorite Kid Quote of The Day

A while ago, I used to babysit an amazing 4-year-old kid named Chase. Over the past week, his attitude wasn't quite the best - he'd been fighting with other students and not doing his schoolwork or participating in activities. So, after picking him up from school one day, I asked him to tell me about his day. Here's the extent of the conversation.

Me: Hey homie! How was school today?
Him: Okay. But I didn't get in trouble today! (as he munches on a peanut butter cracker)
Me: That's awesome!!
Him: You wanna know why? (totally excited)
Me: Sure, buddy!
Him: Because Jason made me upset today and I almost got in trouble, but then I remembered what my mommy read to me last night about loving my friends and so I didn't get upset at Jason and fight or be mean. (all in one breath) And you wanna know something else?
Me: Sure!
Him:
"For if we love one to another, then we will be much happy."

...I couldn't have said it better myself.
