A Teen & His Belly!

OK~ What's a Mom to do?  Garrett is done with school at 10:05 a.m. today due to Semester tests.  Sounds like a good idea to run into town to retrieve him.  He would have had a long wait, as I saw the bus on the road around 1:25 p.m.  Here's our conversation:

Garrett:  "I'm Hungry"
Me:  "So"
Garrett: "You DON'T ever feed me"
Me:  "We feed you!"
Garrett:  "The school doesn't feed us either.  I guess if I would have stayed and waited for the bus I could have had A, B & C lunch!"
Me:  "I'll swing through Taco Johns"

I think to myself- 10 minute wait, as it is 10:20 a.m., lunch starts at 10:30 a.m.  We were first in line for lunch.

Me:  "And your order is?"
Garrett:  Shouting to the order thing "5 Soft Shell Tacos (meat and lettuce only), Large Potato Oles and a Pepsi"
Me:  "You will eat all of that?"
Garrett:  "Sure!"
Lady that works at Taco Johns:  "Your total is $11.48!"
Me:  "GULP"

We proceed ahead to the window to pay and pick up all of that food!  Let me tell ya- this Mom would be broke if I had to take this 14 year old boy out to lunch every day at Taco John's!  After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

BTW- Garrett ate EVERYTHING!!!!!!

I did not receive any food or money to post this.  My post is based strictly on my opinion and nobody elses.


  1. I love it! I am expecting my second boy... So this is a glimpse into my future with TWO boys!!

  2. I consider myself the lucky mother of 2 teens and this is why:
    they really accepted my healthy lifestyle, I "forced" to my family years ago. They prefer to suffer hunger for an hour or so then eat fast food, even when I say that is OK. Sometimes when we're traveling they eat Subway, if there is one around. Any other kind of fast food will give them stomach ache and they will regret it for a long time. This makes me wonder, what's wrong with this picture?

  3. Our oldest (15) won't eat at the golden arches anymore but thinks he needs to eat STEAK (preferrably flat iron) everytime we go to a nice sit down restaurant! What ever happened to the grilled chicken sandwich?! Our kids are an enigma, sometimes they'll eat really healthy and then I'll hear there is no good 'junk food' in the house, go figure...

  4. Our oldest son (15) won't eat anything at the golden arches any longer but is more than happy to order STEAK everytime we go to a nice sit down restaurant! Talk about going broke fast! And this is a child whom you could ALWAYS count on to order the grilled chicken sandwich not long ago... Go figure!

  5. Oooops! Sorry about the double post!


I always love feedback on my blog!
