The day was winding down and we, as a family, were cleaning up the house. Of course we were having the kids do most of the light pick up work, seeing as all the stuff that needed to be picked up belonged to them.
Savannah, however, was not happy about it.
Finally in a moment of frustration, she blurted out to daddy, "It's like you're the king and we have to do whatever you say! And... and you do less while we do more than you!"
We scoffed (nicely of course) at this.
The dialogue between her and daddy went back and forth along these lines for a few moments before she finally finished with, "Humph! You make life so hard."
Suddenly, Luke lets out a long wolf howl and says, "Whoa! Did you hear that whinny wolf? That's what you sound like, a whiny wolf."
Savannah pulls a pout and mumbles, "I do not."
Thankfully, Luke has a talent for ending on a good note with the kids and soon they were laughing and working together.
