Keep Calm and Carry On

 

My teens complain ALL THE TIME that there is nothing to eat. But this is a good thing.

There used to be plenty to eat at our house. The pantry was stocked with cookies, assorted chip packets and microwave popcorn. And that’s just a sample of the snacks that used to be. We also had Bear Paw Brownies, chocolate chip granola bars and Rice Krispies squares. Yes, there used to be plenty to eat at our house.

My teens complain All THE TIME that there is nothing to eat. Did I mention that this is a good thing?

The pantry is stocked with crackers and cheese, fruits, yogurt, nuts and seeds. There are home baked muffins, banana bread and French crêpes.

Looks like there is still plenty to eat at our house. So when my teens complain that there is nothing to eat; I keep calm and carry on.

Because one day, they will see the crackers and cheese and the nuts and the seeds.

One day, they will realize that there is still plenty to eat at our house.

One day. Someday.

Until then, I keep calm and carry on.

      Aww, thanks! Perhaps because I’ve been missing London lately?!
