Lunchtime. The darkest hour.

Pin It
Lunchtime.
Used to be my favorite meal.
Now my darkest hour.
And I blame it on my kids.

Yes, I said it.

Lunchtime in this home has become the worst meal to deal with.
There is always more than enough
fits
yelling
crying
pouting
time-outs

and sometimes putting down for a nap withOUT a lunch in the end.

This is mainly directed towards my almost 4 year old.

He wants what HE wants and nothing else.
Which is pb & j. every. day.
No joke.
Now to be fair, I'm not home MOST days because I'm at work.
But when I am, it is all he wants.
To be fair, I usually do give in because I don't want to deal with the behavior.

Well just yesterday I had NO bread, none at all.
So there was no way to make pb & j.
He was not having it.
I made the same exact lunch his little brother was having to be fair.
Leftover fettucini alfredo & shrimp and junk from the night before,
green beans,
and applesauce.
I thought it looked tasty and my 18 mo old was wolfing it down.
But Mr Independent 3 1/2 yr old wanted his pb & j.
After pouting, crying, whining, etc...
he was sent to his nap without a lunch at all.
After mommy pulled her hair out, yelled a little (I'll be honest!),
and was completely exasperated...

Yes, it USED to be my favorite meal...not so much anymore.
Unless ....I'm at work away from the darkest hour.

While Kaleb was here all he wanted was PB&J..no crust. Seriously, and he could eat 2. I feel like all I did that trip was make peanut butter and jelly. I was like please, lets have chicken nuggets. NOPE. Those chicken nuggets are still in my freezer and probably will be for a while lol
