It Seemed Like an Odd Place for a Hug ... At First!

My 7-year-old son, Eric,  was looking for a toy yesterday and couldn't find it.  He enlisted his sister, Ella, 4, and me to help him find it.

We looked and looked and couldn't find it. At some point later in the day, he says, "I remember where I put it!" Then, he found it.

Ella jumped up and down, shouted, "Yay," and then said, "Give your brain a hug!"

While it seemed like an odd place to hug initially, the more I thought about it, I realized it was a great idea! So, if your brain conks out and won't remember something, but then finally comes through for you later, don't forget to, as Ella suggested, "Give your brain a hug!"
