ok I yelled
the other day the annoyances were too much.
What’s for supper??(as soon as breakfast was done)
I don’t like that…
Wha’ts for supper??(as they are packing their lunches)
any thing else??
What’s for supper??(as soon as they walk in the door from school)
whats for supper??(you asked three times already and the answer hasn’t changed just because you don’t like the answer)
making supper can be a drag
and when you finally have put together a meal that is safe for everyone….whines of” I don’t want that” get tiring…awfully quick.
sick of being
sick of people whining they’d rather have something else
sick of the food allergies
can I have one day…just one day when everyone can have anything.
one day when I don’t have to read labels 5 times
one day when I don’t have to worry that the redness on my child’s face is the start of a reaction
so ok I yelled
they covered their ears and asked if I was finished.
and in a few minutes I was
we sat down to eat
and they ate
and I ate
and one more meal
under the belt
where all walked away
without an allergic reaction…
then off to bed and the day starts again in the morning.
I don’t need to be told I’m blessed, blessed to have a roof over my head
blessed to have food to put on the table
blessed that we have knowledgeable doctors to help us through the food allergies and other allergic conditions that arise
and with that in mind
tomorrow…I will try to not yell
when they ask….
What’s for dinner???
