On with the story: Tonight Isaak was a cranky boy. He wouldn't try his dinner. When I told him that he had to try his dinner to go swimming at the Y, he threatened to throw something at me. I sent him to his room to cool off. I don't know what got into him. This is not his usual behavior. I do think that just like adults have off days or nights, kids do to. This was Isaak's off night.
Mica on the other hand ate his meal; even though it wasn't his favorite thing. Mica went to jujitsu and did really good. So good that he got a band for his belt. Awards are given for good behavior. Mica got one on being well disciplined.
Mica came home from the Y and wanted a snack. Isaak wanted one to. Isaak sort of lost it again when he heard that Mica could have a snack; when he couldn't. We have a rule in our house, if you want a snack you have to first eat your meal.
Mica went over to his breaking down brother and said, "Isaak there's always tomorrow. After that there's another tomorrow." I'm thinking he got this from the movie Annie.
