Promises, Promises




We have all been sick this winter. We keep passing it around. Jonah and I are the latest victims of the 'crud', again. I am getting cabin fever and Jonah is just crabby. Period. I thought that getting outdoors would cheer us both up. On the thirty minute drive to the Nature Preserve, Jonah complained and whined the whole time. After trying all the mommy tricks of music, conversation and other forms of distraction, I resorted to good old fashioned begging.

"Jonah-PLEASE! STOP whining and complaining!"

Silence--------------------------------

"Well, I can try, but I'm not making any promises!"

At the very least we've taught him honesty!
