Lunch Time Shake Down
So..a couple of hours after picking the boys up from school & while I was driving, Chayse excitedly asks, "Hey Mom, did Mrs. Sidhu call & talk to you on the phone?" I looked at him (wide-eyed) in the rearview mirror...."No", I say suspiciously "Why would she need to call & talk to me?" "I don't know", he responds flipantly & with a huge sigh of relief. "She wrote a note in my agenda." "Well Chayse, where is your agenda?" "I left it at school." OKAY!!!!!
So...now here I am on my second lap around the bush with the boy. "Chayse....why would she need to call me & what did she write in your agenda?" "It probably has something to do with me taking someone's cheese & mustard sandwich." So for starters...ewwwwwww...cheese & mustard. Next... "Why did you take someone's sandwich Chayse?" "Well, I asked her for it & she just gave it to me Mom. I did thank her when she gave it to me." GREAT!!!!!
When we finally got home, I explained the obvious to him--that when he eats his lunch & then asks someone else for their lunch it means that they go without. I told him that if he's still hungry, that he needs to let me know & I can pack him a larger lunch.
So, today he gets in the van & I promptly ask him if he has his agenda so I can read the message that Mrs. Sidhu wrote in it. "I left it in the school." DOY!!!! So I sent him back in to get it & here's what was written... "Hi, I have just found out that Chayse has been eating another girl's sandwich because he is asking for it. We talked about how it is really important for him to eat what he has brought. Chayse really wants a cheese sandwich for lunch. Thx..Mrs. Sidhu"
So I march into the school. "So...I understand that we have an issue with Chayse & someone else's lunch." Mrs. Sidhu informs me that the little girl's (Jorja) mom came into the school & told Mrs. Sidhu that Jorja was upset that she was "forced" to share her lunch & that she was hungry.
I would have done the same thing as Jorja's mom...there is no point in sending a lunch with your kid just to have some other kid take half of it.
I honestly don't know what is going on in this child head, but.....What a punk!!!
This morning I packed him a bigger lunch which included 2 pastrami (which he was excited about) buns. The first thing he said to me (after I went into the school) was "I didn't eat all of my lunch Mom...just the Rice Krispy square & the apples."
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....KILL ME NOW!!!!
