Yesterday the following exchange was reported to me by a bystander-sibling:
Elliot: Benaiah, I'll buy your parrot for $5!
(This is a stuffed toy parrot)
Benaiah: Well, no. I have $25!
Elliot: I have $100, but I'll give you 5 and then you'll have more.
Benaiah : No. I want to be content with what I have.
The 4-year-old offers us all a lesson on contentment.
