The Big Breakfast Battle: Finding Enough for Everyone
The Johnson family was a big, happy family with seven kids, ranging in age from six to sixteen. As they gathered around the breakfast table, there was too much noise and too many arguments about what to have for breakfast.
-I want pancakes! shouted little Timmy.
-But we had pancakes yesterday, his older sister Lily pointed out. “Let’s have waffles instead.”
-But I don’t want waffles, Timmy whined.
Their mother, Mrs. Johnson, sighed. “There are too few options for breakfast today. We only have pancakes, waffles, and cereal.”
-I don’t want cereal! declared Tommy, the middle child.
-There are enough pancakes and waffles for everyone, said their father, Mr. Johnson, trying to keep the peace.
But the arguing continued, and soon the Johnson household was in chaos. There was too much shouting and too many complaints about the breakfast options.
Finally, Mrs. Johnson had enough. “That’s it! No one is getting breakfast until you can all learn to get along and make a decision together.”
The kids groaned, realizing they had gone too far. They knew their mom was right – they needed to work together and compromise.
After a few minutes of discussion, they finally agreed on waffles with enough syrup and whipped cream for everyone. They all sat down to enjoy their breakfast, and there was a feeling of relief and happiness around the table.
-This is delicious! exclaimed Lily.
-Yeah, I guess waffles are better than nothing, Timmy said, grinning.
The Johnson family realized that sometimes there were too many voices to be heard, but when they worked together, they could always find a solution that was enough for everyone. They finished breakfast with smiles on their faces, ready to take on the day.
