Some battles simply are not worth fighting. Every day as a parent I try to remind myself of that fact. The reality is that there are days when that concept is much easier to remember than others...

But dealing with children and the occasional strife that comes along with it, is easy to understand. After all, they're trying to learn boundaries. Trying to see how much they can manipulate siblings and parents. Trying to test boundaries is a kid's job.

So we as adults choose our battles and the lessons we want to teach our little people, all in an effort to help them learn. But I think kids have a good sense for choosing battles as well.

Ellie for example, has decided that if a very persistent chicken wants to be her very best friend, it's just easier for everyone if she goes along with that plan... for today...
