Boy Wonder had a friend spend the nite last nite. The boys and I were in the living room watching a movie and my son wanted a snack. He went into the kitchen and we were discussing what they could have for a snack at 11pm. They decided on Pop tarts. My son gave the boy a choice of three different kinds. My son stated " Now see, if my mom didnt use her coupons and have a mini store here, we wouldnt have such a big choice of what to have for a snack." My son looked at me and said "his mom and dad dont understand why you have all this stuff stock piled" The boy started to stammer as I threw him a look and he stopped. Apparently the boy and his parents talk about me and my "couponing and stock piling" behind my back. This is the boy that comes over that is very picky about what he eats, will fill his plate to the hilt at dinner and only take a couple of bites, and will sneak junk food after I go to bed.
Don't get me wrong, guests at my house are welcome to anything I have. I do buy junk food, but my family eats it in moderation. None of us sit down with a brand new bag of cookies or chips and eats THE WHOLE THING. The boy will do this at my house after my hubby and I go to bed. He wont eat a full healthy meal. He wants to eat junk non-stop.
So to get a handle on the situation I started putting everything up, out of sight, and will tell my son, "I put such and such on the counter for you and him if you want a snack after I go to bed, but that's all you are getting.
This morning when I got up this is what I found on my counter by the sink. For those of you who arent familiar with these green tupperware bowls, they are a big bowl!
It pissed me off to no end. I bet there is at least two cups of milk wasted, not to mention the cereal. Errrrrrrrrrr
