The world is full of complainers. I mean, no matter what, whiners will find something to whine about. Mostly those people are politicians. Or actors.
Ok, I’m not discussing THOSE people today.
Today, I will discus the two complainers in my house.
Years ago, when they were just becoming teens I would hear this: “My toes are weird.” Or “I have man feet”. “Mom, Mom, look at my big toes, they are wacky looking.” “Who gave me these feeeettt?”
Finally, I could not take it anymore and I had their feet amputated.
Ok, that would be a little drastic, so I did what any normal Mom would do. I told them that if they didn’t stop complaining about their feet that God would come down and take them away from them.
Yes, you are right, I am the best Mother on the planet.
Feet complaining came to a halt.
Then a year or so ago we moved upwards to the face. “My lips are so thin.” “Look, look, I have NO lips” “Mom who gave me the thin lips?”
Does anyone else notice that hardly a woman on TV/movies has normal lips anymore? I blame hollywood for most bad stuff, so this just upped my case.
If anyone should be complaining about their lips, it’s Cocoa.
We had our family portraits done this fall and they came out lovely. No retouching needed. But of course, what did they both say? “My lips are SO thin!”
And me, who can not photoshop to save her life figured out how to show them the hollywood versions of themselves.
Miraculously, the complaining has stopped. I didn’t even have to ask God to assist with this one.
Happy weekend everyone. I wish for you to have laughter, love and non-inflated lips.
