Sibling Rivalry

The Sprouts have begun arguing over which one of them 'owns' Grandma, Grandpa, and Mommy.

I am so tired of hearing "MY mommy" and "She was MY mommy first!" that I could scream.

I think stuff like this comes from being indoctrinated into a culture where everything important is limited. (schooling does this in spades, but so do most religions, and just the normal culture) Some people I know have addressed this by pretending that nothing is limited, which I have to say is just stupid.

The truth as I see it is that there are some things that are limited and some things that are not. Love is not limited. M&M's probably are. Cucumbers in the summer are not limited. There are none in the winter.

Interesting thought, CG. I hadn't thought about it in that way before, but you have a point. I will have to ponder this one a bit more....
