I’m woken up every morning by a two-year old who wants food. And he wants it now. That isn't the only thing my two-year old or my three-year old want right now. Anything they want, they want it now. Right now. A few days ago while I was cooking dinner, they were fussing about how long it was taking. I admonished them by saying, “You’re acting like children”. Of course, this didn't have much impact on them, since they are children. What exactly was I expecting?
But, beyond that they simply don’t have patience, there are two lessons I take from this.
