At Least You Came

Cami did not want to come on our after-church walk today. She was allowed three minutes of complaining before we left (we set a timer) & then dragged her feet as we explored some "secret passages" and alleyways near our house.

Yet as we were nearing home, she told Jason, "This has been a nice walk. But I still don't want to be on it."

What a great idea -- set a timer for complaining, then you are expected to cooperate! I'll bet you will find that you are glad you formed this habit when she hits sixth grade.

That's like Theron, when we serve something for dinner he doesn't like: "I don't like it, but I'll eat it anyway." One can't complain too loudly at that :)

Once again your Cami has made me smile. Of course it's a lot easier when it's someone else's child! ;-)
