Here, Watch This!

I eschewed the world history lessons.

Probably best if I wait on those until they're a bit older.

After a dinner of rice, soy bean paste soup, bean sprouts with sesame oil, pan fried tofu and radish kimchi, I sat them down and said: here, watch this.

Eldest: Daddy, we already watched this.
Yes, but what does it mean?
Eldest: blank stare.

The blocks and circles were different, they didn't understand each other, they fought.  In the end, they became the same but that's because in the beginning they really were the same.  It took them to fight to figure that out.

Youngest: What about the triangle?
Maybe they'll fight again, or maybe they'll learn it doesn't matter if everyone is exactly the same.

Now watch this:

Sometimes, people want the same thing, and they'll throw away their friendship over it.  In the end, they both lose.

We ended by discussing the transient nature of most human endeavor, and why sweating the small stuff isn't really worth the lack of sleep:
