The other day I had a work meeting outside the house that ran from about 2:30 – 7:00 pm.
Towards the end of my meeting, I got this tweet:
So, I got home. I did notice that the dish washer was going, and that surprised me, but my thought was that he had cleaned his room and was doing dishes.
Oh no… I asked him why his feet hurt and what was going on? He goes “look in the fridge” I was like “Oh, did you clean it out?”
No, he hadn’t cleaned out the fridge, he filled it up!
While I was gone my kid cooked enough food to last us a week:
- 2 servings of ramen noodles
- Hamburger Helper
- egg-less cookie dough to eat not bake (more like a brownie mix)
- Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Now, before you judge, you need to know that most of what he cooked are items that I keep on hand for emergencies, it’s not part of our everyday rotation – and I’m not sure how old the box of jello was; however, I will eat everything! My son spent time cooking for me, so I will eat it! In fact, today, I had ramen noodles for my lunch – it’s been years since I’ve had any, and yeah, they haven’t changed at all! For dinner, I will have some hamburger helper. And I will enjoy it all because I didn’t have to cook AND he didn’t leave me all those dirty dishes to do!
Yup, that happened – my son got bored and cooked for a week!
