31. I have always told my son that it didn't matter whether or not he won or
lost a game in his Little Soccer League. What counted was whether or not he had fun, and if he had fun, then he WAS a winner. (He was six and I'm glad he bought that because his team was the youngest and smallest in the league and rarely ever won.

One day we were in the grocery store and saw a young college baseball player. My son ran up to him and asked did you win or lose? The player made a sad face and said they lost. And my young'un piped up, "It doesn't matter if you won or lost. If you had fun, then you were a winner."

Proud Momma. :D
