The Wrong Pizza

My kids are at their dad's tonight. I called them at around 7 p.m. to check in and discovered that they were having a grand old time with their uncle Max, who was babysitting for a few hours. When I asked what they were doing, I was told that they ordered a pizza and were just sitting down for dinner. My son always orders the same pizza: black olives and pinapple.

He told me that they made a mistake, instead of black olives they put tomatoes.
I imagined a pizza with tomatoes and pinapple and thought it might not be the greatest combination. So I said, "Tomatoes and pinapple? What does that taste like?"

He said "They forgot the pinapple too, they put chicken instead."

"Did you call and tell them they made a mistake?"

"No, who cares, I can live with it. It's actually pretty good Mom."

Funny how sometimes 10 year olds have the wisdom to just go with the flow and enjoy the surprises along the way. Perhaps, we too can curb the complaining and discover some of the surprises that are right infront of us enjoy!

How is it that our tolerance and willingness to try new tings disapates with age?
