Setting: 15 min. into an hour wait at a crowded restaurant with 2 kids, one husband, and my parents.
Me: Caleb you need to quit whining. No one likes whining. It hurts our ears.
Caleb: I can't.
Me: (teeth clenched and sort of hissing at this point) Maybe you need to ask God for help.
Caleb: (falling to the floor and landing in frightened turtle-in-a-highway position) God please help me stop whining. . . inaudible)
It worked! God is faithful.
