Grateful Humour

When your 8 year old sits sullenly at the dinner table, tears welling in his eyes everytime you insist he eat his supper. It might be wise to assess the situation, observe what is on the plate, consider it from his perspective.

I did and here is how the conversation played out

Mom: "eat up"
E-man: choking back tears
Mom: "what's wrong?"
E-man: choking back tears
Mom: "you know that chicken balls aren't really chicken "balls" right?"
E-man: picks up his fork "I'm grateful for that!"
