Here's a little funny. When you just need to laugh at yourself.
We were at the table getting ready to eat dinner. We all had food on our plates, grace had been said and most of us had started eating, except babygirl.
She looks at me and says "Mommy, I am hungry."
My mind is reeling, and thinking; What????You are at the table and food is on your plate??? Don't you like your food?? Are you going to tell me you don't LIKE what we are having? Are you going to tell me you don't WANT what we are having? Maybe she just feels hungry, but is really going to throw up all over.
She is looking at me with a puzzeled look, wondering what Mommy is thinking about and why it is taking so long to answer her. She is definitely waiting for me to answer her.
After analyzing the situation very closely, I come to the most profoundest statement I could in the moment.....
"Ok, honey, then just eat."
She replies "Ok"
Really???? Are you kidding me??? Was she really waiting for me to say she could eat???
And to think I analyzed every possible scenario that I could think of in 10 seconds, to be the best most profound Mom there is. And all I needed to tell her was to dig in????
Well, I just had to laugh at myself. Do I really need to look for something so much more when the answer is so simple and staring at me in the face. Whew! Talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill. LOL.
