Thought for the day……

Something that I learned today ……  I went out for a bit this morning with my neighbour and two of her three children.  Alvin as always, upon my return, is happy to see me for about 20 seconds, LOL   before he starts biting at my toes and pulling on my pant legs (not bad if you have pants on) LOL but …..   After we had lunch we came upstairs (yes, he had to have his carrots, broccoli and cauliflower) to check my email.  As I was trying to put away a couple of things he continued to try and bite at my feet and pull on my pant legs.  When I sat down at the computer,  Alvin went into my bedroom and jumped up onto the bed (I thought that I heard his thud) and grabbed the stuffed FROG that I have sitting on my bed and started to make his getaway, but Mom was faster.  I grabbed the frog.  Put it back onto the bed.  As he was tugging on my pant leg, I took his face in my hand (gently, of course) and looked him right in the eyes and said in a stern voice, “enough, Alvin, no biting” and lo and behold, he stopped and went and laid on the office floor.  Sure hope this works the next time.  Or maybe that will be the last time that he grabs my pants or my feet.  One can only hope….. ….  🙂

So in case you haven’t figured out “what the thought for the day” is, it is this:  always look someone in the eyes when you are trying to get a point across or just telling them that you love them.  They will take you definitely take you seriously.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol
