conversations with young one
I know you've had this conversation with a little person in your life at one time or another. You know, it's the one where he or she complains about something insignificant and you counter with a laundry list of reasons to be grateful: the family, the health, the home, the food, the friends, etc.
So this last time, Young One responded, "I know. You are right. I mean, it could be worse and I could be a hamster. Mamma hamsters eat their babies."
And, yes, she was very serious.
