1. It's liberating to call someone "friend" after just meeting.

4. Chocolate milk can make any day better.
5. Drinking out of cute mugs totally makes the beverage taste more awesome.
6. Soaking in the bathtub is the only solution for dirt stained (literally) feet.
7. Sometimes it takes a few tries to go #2, and that's okay. Don't give up.
8. If you fall out of bed, go ahead and cry. Then get up and keep going.
9. When you hurt someone's feelings, say sorry and give them a hug. Simple.
10. You are never too big for snuggles. And tickling. Tickling is always fun.
