A Weighty Statement

| Related | October 22, 2014

(Me, my husband, his mother, and our eight-year-old son are sitting at a table dining. Our son is unhappy about losing a toy and we try to comfort him in a pretty traditional way…)

Mother-In-Law: “Don’t be sad, Sometimes losing things means they made space for something else in your life…”

Husband: “Yes, and losing is sometimes good, and it makes you happy!”

Me: “For instance, when you lose some weight!”

Mother-In-Law: *not listening* “…and maybe someone else finds what you lost and is happy to have it.”

(Everyone burst out laughing leaving my mother-in-law confused.)
