DON'T CRY OVER SPILLED MILK...

 Or DROPPED cake.
That's the lesson I have been trying to teach to Kaleb for 14 years.  
Sometimes he gets frustrated over the little things.
"Guess what?"
(I say to him)
"LIFE IS SHORT!"
A few nights ago a friend gave us this cake.
Kaleb wanted some before heading to bed, with milk of course.
"SURE!" I told him.
He was carrying the cake over to the counter...
when it slipped off the plate and hit the floor.
He fell to the ground, angry and frustrated at himself.
I looked at him and started LAUGHING!
"IT'S FUNNY" I tell him.
"Now get down on the floor and 
EAT YOUR CAKE!"
At first he thought I was crazy...but soon realized WHY NOT?
And so he did...with a HUGE smile.

hahahaha!! That's hilarious. I agree. Life is WAY too short to get upset over a cake on the floor. Glad he ate it :)
