Hmmm….do you think only little kids have temper tantrums when they do not get the toy they want?
Today two ladies wanted the same Teddy Bear and there was a ‘spat’…… a few mean words, grumpiness, grumbling and arms flying and they both said, “It is mine. She gave it to me.”
It wasn’t funny. It was sad…….sad what a little gift of a stuffed animal meant to the two ladies, in their 80’s. Not to worry, though. I had plenty of beautiful dogs, penguins, bears and an assortment of turtles and frogs……everything was smoothed out when I opened another bag of stuffed animals.
Kind of reminded me of the words of a poem that I learned a long time ago. About a gingham dog who had a terrible spat!
