So we were up and out the door early for DS’s check up this morning. Unfortunately, due to this H1N1 scare, the office was jam packed. Uh Oh. We finally saw the doc after a 45min wait for people to get their shots. At least all is well with my boy! Because he has asthma he ended up getting the shot himself. Well….1/2 of it anyways. At 7 he is too young for the whole dose so I get to go back again in 3 weeks for the other half. DD, who at 10 can get the shot all at once, will also get hers at this time. Oh, I can’t stand the fun. Of course we had some alligator tears, but the doctor made us (not DS) laugh when he declared hockey players the biggest chickens!! LOL!!
I was glad to have this breakie in my body after the extended wait!
I drove the kids to school at popped into DS’s class to let the teacher know that he had his shot. Guess what she comes back at me with? She informed me that ALL the kids in her class have healthy food in their lunch and all DS pulls out of his is junk. JUNK? Seriously?? Me, pack JUNK for my kids???? Granted DS can be a picky eater, but I do send him with healthy granola bars (Kashi, Nature’s Path), WW goldfish, real juice drinking boxes and if he has a sandwich, it’s always WW bread. He is not a big fruit/veggie eater, so I save that sort of food for at home so I know that it doesn’t get thrown out. I often will pack his thermos with dinner leftovers, too. To say I was offended was an under statement. This teacher does not see him eat oatmeal each morning, nor the salad/cucumbers/chickpeas/lentils, etc that he eats at dinner. I know I’m biased here, but IMO, she was out of line. What do you guys think? Should a teacher dictate what a child brings in their lunch bag? Like I told her, I pack what I know he will eat. Food coming home and/or getting thrown out does not equal food in his belly. Sorry for the rant. I really would love to hear your opinions on this.
No workout today. It was Thursday yoga day. That’s cool, though. I took the hour to pick up my contacts, pull all the bedding off the bed because we bought a new mattress set on the weekend and it was delivered this afternoon, scooped cat litter and played with my fur babies. I also snacked on a Kashi granola bar;
Moroccan Chickpea Stew with a healthy dollop of raw hummus. And because my hubby always teases that I take the picture while the food looks nice, this is what happens post shoot;
The caffeine had my head buzzing, but it tasted great going down!!
Dinner was a bit hectic tonight with the mattress delivery thrown into the mix. I stuck to the meal plan and mad the Mexican chicken, though! The fam ate their dinner earlier than I wanted so I packed mine up and took it to the rink with me.
I ate this meal at a small table by myself while reading New Moon. So much more peaceful than what I’m use to! :) When I was done I walked down the hall to the library to get DS some books, grabbed a tea at the cafe then watch the last 20 minutes of DD’s skating lesson. Then , the 2 of us drove over to DS’s practice which was at the rink by our house. Once we got home the 4 of us put fresh sheets on the new mattress set. To say I can’t wait to get into bed is an understatement!! Our old set was 14 years old!!! Once CSI & Vampire Diaries are over, I’ll be tucking myself in!
Candy confession time!
Bye for now!!
