Yeah, that hi there sounds pretty happy, but in reality, I'm really annoyed at the moment. I'm usually annoyed at dinnertime. Actually, dinnertime seriously pisses me off most nights. The cooking, the NOT EATING, the food on the floor, the food on their clothes, the freaking dishes. I HATE DINNERTIME!!!
I mean, my kids don't eat ANYTHING!!! It's the most annoying thing in the world to spend any length of time making a meal only for it to NOT. BE. EATEN. By ANYONE!!! I already hate cooking. Not eating the food is rubbing salt in the wound. But, they don't care. (They're kids - I can't expect them to care. But I'm still annoyed!)
I'm exhausted from blogging until 1:30am, only to be woken up and kept awake for 2 hours by my 2 year old. She just wanted to cuddle - I'm not mad about it. I'm just tired. So, they are watching a movie while I sit in front of my computer and rant.
Husband is out tonight with his friends watching baseball (or hockey??? I don't really know). I knew he'd be gone tonight so I thought "Hey! I'm going to keep the kids happy and we are going to make our own pizza!!!" I've never made a pizza before (I hate cooking, remember?), but I thought it would be fairly easy and fun. And it was!
My #1 helped me spread the sauce and cheese and place pepperoni. #2 was supposed to help but she chose to poop her pants instead, so she missed the pizza-making. They even sat in front of the oven and watched it cook!!! But come time to eat, guess what? THEY DIDN'T EAT THE PIZZA!!!!!!!
What. The. Heck.
The only one who ate the pizza was the baby. It was so good, too!!! But #1 asked for apples (he ate 3 whole, giant apples) and #2 asked for strawberries and blueberries (like half a container each of strawberries and of blueberries) and a whole pear. Can I really be mad they ate fruit for dinner (Yes, I know it's not a well-balanced meal. But they ate something, right?)? YES I CAN!!! I mean, look at this pizza!!!
Last week, trying to get a break from freaking macaroni and cheese aaaaaaaaaallllllllll the time, I made tocos for the first time! You know what they ended up eating? MACARONI AND CHEESE! Again - What. The. Heck.
Tomorrow they are getting...MACARONI AND CHEESE! It's the ONLY thing I can guarantee they will eat, so I'm sticking with it. Ugh.
Dinnertime sucks. And, HOORAY! Bedtime is up next! Can't. Wait. (I know you're sensing my sarcasm.)
Thanks for reading my silly rant!
Until next time,
