So I got a take home flyer for Grandparents day at school. They are asking for the parents to supply stuff for the party...which they are going to make banana splits? WTF! Sorry, I am so disappointed with class parties always being unhealthy. I just got the list of items needed for the Valentines party...cookies, frosting, chocolate, sprinkles....and at Christmas it was cookies, frosting, hot chocolate, marshmallows ...So I went to the school with a mission yesterday...to ask for fruit or veges instead of always cookies and candies...I mean really with this day and age and all the overweight kids...can't we come up with some healthy options in there. So I wait until I am one of the last moms there at pick up...one mom was hanging around telling the teacher how sick her kid is(I was trying hard not to role my eyes...I mean really how many times can you say he has a fever, throwing up that we all believe you) I then ask the teacher "Do you think it would be ok to suggest we have maybe fruit kabobs in addition to cookies at the valentines party? Or would the homeroom mom object?" Teacher "Oh I am sure she would be ok with it" She proceeds to say maybe we should have spinache cookies also...I gave her my ARE YOU SERIOUS or giving me a bad time look but got no read...so I just laughed it off..saying I didn't want to be the mom the kids hate.....can you say awkward?
Ok, so I decide I will bring fruit to the next function(Valentines Day)...along with the juice boxes I had signed up for.....I am expecting next school party to have an option of fruit in the sign up list or I may come unglued. Then the mom with the sick kid said "I am so glad you said something I think its terrible that its always cookies and candy(umm I didn't put it that way, but yes) and I will brink watermellon...um, ok Then she says she wants to invite my son to her sons birthday party in 2 weeks and that she is not inviting the whole class and such...I felt a little awkward as my son never talks about her son but I said sure..we would love to.
As for weigh in Wednesday..I forgot..maybe subconciously or not as I did eat a big dinner last night (left over meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans AND a salad) then had my skinny cow ice cream sandwhich AND 2 granola bars..ughhh...I was an endless pit yesterday..so darn hungry...my fill can't come soon enough!
