jay-walking...



my son jay is something else... every single morning i have to beg him to eat his breakfast... obviously not a morning person- just like his mama... after breakfast i fill their lunchboxes with a sandwich and a cold drink for break-time... this lunchbox comes home, untouched every single day... so now every morning i ask him "do you want a lunchbox?" and every time he says...
"no thanks mom... no time to eat... have to play!"...
which is cool.... they finish school at 13h00 so if he has a solid breakfast he'll make it till lunch without dying of hunger... now... the plot thickens...
the other day we were chatting about lunch for some reason and i innocently asked him "don't you ever get hungry during your school day sweetheart?"... "nah"... he says.... "the other kids gives me their sandwiches..."

and right there the red flickering warning lights and the internal mommy-siren went on....

"why on earth would your friends give you a sandwich every single day?"... i asked, cringing... just knowing what i'm about to discover just can't be good....

.... "teacher asks before break-time if there is anyone who's mommy didn't pack them lunch... and then the other kids have to share".... mwhahahahahahaha... i am horrified!!!!... so now the whole class and the teacher thinks i can't afford to pack my son lunch or just don't bother to pack my son food... can you imagine?!!!! argh!! and he's just coasting along, getting a new interesting sandwich every day...!!

well now i pack him a sandwich every single day, even if i have to throw it out... the shame!

The Kid better not try them shenanigans with me.

The Boyfriend was telling me the other day how his mom made shit sandwiches, so at break time, him and his friends would run them under the tap until soggy and then pelt each other with the sandwiches.

nice, huh?

Ah Sweets, sometimes it's not as bad as you might make it out to be! I was like that right till matric, I never ate my lunch - I either traded with someone else or I just didn't have time to eat! Until I started cooking and making my own lunch..... I have an interesting way of making food!

Maybe he'll grow out of it but for now, yup the teacher probably thinks Gosh, what kind of mother sends a child to school without lunch? Shame on her!

LoL

You just reminded me of something a friend was telling me about his daughter. Off to blog about it now. Haa haa haa haa.

Jay is sooooooooooo dodgy!

How mortifying! What ever happened to beating up the little kids for their lunch money?

sweets said...

emct: ha... yeah that is quite...nice...LOL... i would have loved him to rather do that than come across as starved... ouch

afro: i have to applaud the teacher, that is quite a nice thing to do... just a pity the "system" was exploited ;)

bridget: my son dodgy... hmmm... no he's not!!! he's... he's... hmmm.... ok he's a bit dodgy ;) but he's got nothing on your friend’s daughter... good grief!!

kyk: i know... we had so much higher standards didn't we?

Southern Sage said...

you should tell him to tell the folks that since u cant pay the power bill you can't make sandwiches then maybe theyd send money and food!

Melany aka Supermom said...

Oh gosh, talking about a child embarrassing you!

M@ said...

You must be really poor.

sweets said...

sage: no! ;)

mel: i saw his teacher at school the other day, and she gave me "the look" and i could not for the life of me figure out why... until later of course ;)

m@: i may have poor judgement, agreed :)

I think you have to take a bage out of BecauseICan's (http://batchfoobadmommy.blogspot.com/2008/03/letter-of-intent.html) book. Like her latest post on the BMB.
