Hard isn't it??? Nearly impossible right?
Sometimes I manage to amaze myself. My neighbor's son's birthday party was yesterday. (It was super cute! It was a super-hero party. Goto the bottom of the page for a really awesome idea) She served lunch. There were sandwiches, cheese puffs, pretzels, goldfish and candy. I only ate 2 oranges out of everything yummy that they had to offer. Every time I got the urge to munch I grabbed an orange. I'm not going to lie though I stole a bite of Baye's cupcake (cake only) and licked some stray frosting off my fingers. Other than that I didn't even have anything else. Not even 1 tiny M&M (which was staring at me half the party saying "eat me, eat me!")
I'm learning more about self-control all the time. Maybe I can get to the point where I can go without sugar altogether! (Hey a girl can dream can't she?) I've been pretty good recently about desserts. A piece of stone fruit and a 1/4 cup of marshmallow fluff.
But back to the party, by the time we got home I was STARVING. So for dinner we had cereal. I didn't feel like making a "real meal". This is the conversation that took place between Mo and I when she found out I was making cereal for dinner:
Mo -- Are we having a real dinner tomorrow?
Me -- What's wrong with tonite's dinner?
Mo -- It's just not the kind of dinner that we normally have. Are you actually cooking tomorrow?
Me -- Yes I'm actually cooking a "real dinner" tomorrow.
Who knew that my kids were so accustomed to having real homemade dinners.
How do your kids react to non-homemade dinners like cereal? Do you ever eat a dinner like that?
Final thought: How cute is this idea?
