Mama column | With out snacks, with out me


The temper adjustments out of nowhere. This time not as a result of the windmill on the balcony on the prime proper would not flip or I did not perceive that one shoe ought to keep on and solely the left one needed to be taken off. The snacks are empty! ALARM!

I all the time choose up my son on the day care heart after snack time and I discovered fairly rapidly that after snack time is earlier than snack time and that I all the time must have one thing for a sudden drop in blood sugar and temper.

I do not exit of the home with out emergency provisions and on the playground and within the courtyard our mom all the time has every little thing together with her to arrange a small buffet. We’re effectively outfitted: fruit, greens, fancy millet teddy bears with beetroot powder, pretzel stick, terribly wholesome biscuits with no sugar and a few with, cheese cubes, the remainder of the banana pancakes from the day earlier than. The record is lengthy.

No, the children do not eat out of boredom, don’t fret. Earlier than the frenzy to the play tools, everybody gathers across the meals, strengthens themselves and when the raisins have been picked from the path combine and all the youngsters are fed up, they disappear, run round, do high-performance sports activities and solely come by for an enormous sip of water in between Starvation is again. If I have been on the transfer all day, doing a thousand dash laps, climbing hills and climbing frames, doing somersaults and actually exhausting arguments a few doll’s buggy, I might be hungry on a regular basis!

Yesterday an actual fake pax occurred to me. I did not have sufficient for the best way again! That sounds innocent, however no, it was nearly the top of the world. After a day on the playground that dragged on into the night, all of the snacks have been eaten, however the best way residence was nonetheless a protracted one. In a big group, leaving simply takes half an hour and out of the blue it was truly dinner time. F * ck!

I perceive that I’ve to attend just a little longer after which a extremely scrumptious dinner will probably be ready for me at residence, however the son is barely two years outdated and is simply hungry. And now and never in half an hour. Starvation pangs. And mother, who’s doing every little thing incorrect anyway, did not suppose alongside. A giant movie show.

Thankfully, on the best way again there was not solely a drugstore with quetschies, but in addition a baker with the driest pretzel sticks I’ve ever eaten. What do I take away from this example for right now? I smear cheese stalls for the playground tour with the gang so that there’s dinner on the limitless manner residence and that does not include dust-dry pretzel sticks.
