Maybe They Do Listen

When I make supper there are usually 4 out of 6 that like it.  The moans and groans from the other two are met with my usual lecture. "There are children in this world that didn't eat yesterday.  They didn't eat today and they won't be eating tomorrow.  They have no food to eat. When they ask their mommies for food they will be told they don't have any food to give them.  How heartbreaking. We need to be grateful for what we have."

Yeah we know.  Blah blah blah.  Whatever mom.

This morning Griffen was doing his usual.  Meowing that there wasn't enough food or water and threatening to tip both bowls over if someone didn't meet his demands.  I asked Nathan to check on Griff.  I heard him say, "Griffen there is food right here see? (shaking of bowl)  And this bowl is full of water!  See Griff?  You have enough food and water.  You need to be grateful for what you have."
