Encouraging words

Today in the car, G was whining. She didn't want to go where we were going, she wanted lunch, the car's air conditioner was too cold and her toe hurt from wearing her little sister's flip flops. Wah, wah, wah.

A's decided to join the conversation. "You know G, you're really good at whining. You practice so much and if there was a whining contest, I bet you'd win!"

"A!" I scolded.

"But Mom, you say we're supposed to say words that build up and encourage and I was doing THAT!" A informed me.

"Um...yeah. But you're not supposed to encourage BAD behavior. Didn't you get the memo?" I asked.
