It has been weeks or perhaps a month. I haven’t read to my little man since then. I was too busy sleeping or minding my business. After cooking and preparing food, I would prefer to stay in my room and go down only when I need to pee or feel hungry. I made sure though to remind the boys to eat and also feed my 22-month-old son.
This morning, I must have missed my little man so much. I told myself I would spend my day with him. I opened our laptop and looked for a nice story to read. We read the story of the Dog and the Oyster.
My Monday was awful. I felt overworked and unappreciated. This mother would want to complain but remained quiet and gloomy. She wished for her husband to be understanding and show a little consideration, pretty much like the story of the Belly and the Members.
They say nothing comes easy without hard work. Thus for others who tried but to no avail, they tend to be bitter. They act with such scornful denial, even dismissing the benefit of such fruitful labor just because it is unobtainable. Have we been like that? Let me share with you the story of The Fox and the Grapes.
