Story. Peanut butter and honey sandwich.

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.  ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
I’m a bad Mami.  There…I’ve said it.  I feel terrible – I really do.  My 8 year old came home yesterday and said to me:

“Mami, you HAVE to give me money for lunch tomorrow.  They had my favorite lunch today and I couldn’t get it.  It was hamburgers…and they are WAY better than McDonald’s.  They said I had, like, negative money in there and so I couldn’t get it.  They gave me a cheese stick and a peanut butter and honey sandwich.  Mom…that’s like the 2nd time I’ve had a peanut butter and honey sandwich this year!  I didn’t have one once in 1st grade.  My friend Mark was crying the other day because he had to have a peanut butter and honey sandwich.  I felt like crying today but I didn’t.” 
The dreaded peanut butter and honey sandwich.  Apparently there is a stigma that comes with that lunch.  I hope he is not scarred for life over the experience…I slipped a $50 check in his backpack…no more peanut butter and honey sandwiches!
Pin It!


  1. Poor Logan! I hope he survives this humiliation. At the boys' new school, they don't serve peanut butter. It's sun(flower) butter, which is apparently pretty gross. See Logan, it could be worse :)

    P.S. Great blog!

  2. Wow - I never thought of that!! It totally COULD be worse!! Thanks for the comment!!
