Life Lesson #99

Jacie's Kindgarden teacher Mrs. Rikli apparently would tell her class many times as she passed out items, "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit".  Jacie adopted the saying and brought it home to share with her sister Jaelin.  I love it and find myself using the catchy phrase all the time.

For example I have repeated it several times to myself in the last few weeks about the weather and the pasture conditions as we continue to unroll more hay.

Last year at this time we were bottle feeding calves in shorts and the grass was green.

This year we have snow, brown pastures and mud.  Although I am hopeful this will lead to more precipitation this summer.  

But no matter what, "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit"!

  1. We always said "you get what you get and you don't get upset." Maybe it was the New England tongues that made it rhyme better. Nevertheless, definitely a good lesson for all ages!
