It’s human nature to want what we can’t have. Unfortunately, this nature rears its ugly head at an early age.
My girls were taking a bath and since we had some extra time, I pulled out a Fisher Price Noah’s Ark set for them to play with. I love this toy because there are two of every animal – two lions, two elephants, two zebras. Perfect for two girls.
However, there is only one Noah.
And Selah ended up with him first.
Macy: Mommy! Selah has Noah!
Me: That’s okay, Macy. Let Selah play with Noah for a minute.
Macy: No! I want to play Noah’s Ark.
Me (sighing): Oh, Macy. You can still play Noah’s Ark. Here’s the boat and here’s some of the animals.
Macy (frustrated): You can’t play Noah’s Ark without Noah!!
Good point, Macy. However, you still have to wait until Selah is done.
