I've created a Monster
4 Monsters to be exact.
I used to yell, scream, huff, and puff all morning long
at the kids to get ready on time
and pick something out for breakfast
If we got in the car and they grabbed candy, fruit snacks, or didn't get anything at all,
I'd be angry with them, well, because, it's brain food!
I'd drive off from their school feeling all guilty,
picturing them there hungry in their classroom,
their little sad deprived faces,
rubbing their little tummies
waiting for the lunch bell to ring.
Dramatic, I know.
They'd come home from school
and talk about how their friends shared their watermelon,
sandwiches, chips, cookies.
Just stabbing my heart with each little word.
Blah, blah, blah, so and so's mom is so much better than you...she makes her kids food...blah, blah, blah...
(of course that's not what they said, but that's what I heard!!)
Then all of a sudden a light bulb went off in my head,
Ummm...hello! Mom, make your kids some food!
And thus, the monsters were born.
Hubby heard the monsters in the making
and now he's become one too.
He usually leaves early, so sometimes I don't get to his in time...
Mustard (and I put a little mayo, because seriously a sandwich without mayo, is just unthinkable!), jalapeno munster cheese, and ham
PB & J
because it was Wed. and the 1st time he received sandwiches for the week.
Mayonaise, colby cheddar cheese, and ham
She used to like PB&J until she accidently got her sister's ham.
She was amazed at the ham sandwich skills her mother possesed.
So now she gets extra mayo, mustard, no cheese, (she prefers pastrami(monster's i told you)
but will settle for ham if that's all we have!
PB & J, just like his daddy's.
Guess that wasn't very wordless...
Happy Wednesday, may your bellies be full, and your hearts happy!
