It is nice to know that the value of lessons learned from nurturing parents increases with the age of their children. – A MadonaRism by Madona Cole-Lacy –

By now we know that wishes for “my two front teeth” rather than a toy had to have been of paramount importance to a child who might have been constantly subjected to ridicule, if not bullying – not just by his or her peers, but by adults who might have unwittingly done so by simply commenting on the missing teeth.
“We can pretty much determine how fruitful our efforts to plant seeds of love and humanity will be, based on the attitude with which we approach our farm or garden from the on-set.” -Madona Cole-Lacy-
