saving our appetite

on the way to pick up jones from school, starboy, boo, and i were snacking on some crackers.  we had been grocery shopping and running errands all morning.  boo decided to sit in the WAY back, so i couldn't reach her to give the crackers.  she was whining about not getting any.  i told her to wait until we got to the school and she could unbuckle and come get some.  that appeased her until she saw me get another handful. 
"you're gonna eat them all, mom!"  she complained.
"no, this is my last one," i explained, "i want to save my appetite for lunch."
"i wanna save my appetite for snack!"  she told me.

(way to set priorities, right?!)

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." 
don't be bashful, i'd love to hear what you have to say... leave a comment!
