Matthew’s Close Call

A couple of weeks ago, Andrea finished making dinner and sat down with the boys to eat.  Benjamin looked at his food and said, “Is this what we are having?” with displeasure in his voice.  We, like many, many parents around the world, had been having a particular hard time getting our kids to eat what we put in front of them, of late.  Ben’s disgust with the meal was the last straw for Andrea, who began to lecture Benjamin about how much work goes into to shopping and preparing a meal and how it takes a big effort to cook two meals every night, one that they like and one that they would eat.  This went on for a couple of minutes as Ben listened quietly.

When Andrea was finished saying her piece, she looked over at Matthew who responded with something like, “I was going to say the same thing, but I am glad I didn’t.”
