Lessons from a 5 year old

This conversation took place between my son and I in the elevator last night.

Abdu- Mommy you know we have to reuse paper?

Me-What?

Abdu- Yes we have to reuse paper. Write on both sides.

Me- Did your teacher tell you that?

Abdu- NO! MOM! I told me that...

Me-okay, so where did you learn that from?

Abdu- Mommmmm! I have a good brain. I'm a genius.

MashaAllah. I don't know where he gets this stuff from, but most of us could learn a lot from the five year olds in our life.
