Saturday’s favourite child is……

After a 105km round trip for rugby which involved 1.3 hours of hysterical crying from Nixon, “Kid o’ the Day” was a bit of a one man race today.  But never put it past Ethan to lose a one man race, he is apt to self-destruct when you least expect it.

So, after our rugby-roadie I thought I would make the day even better by getting the grocery shopping done for the week ahead.  I asked E what he would like for dinner, fully expecting him to reply with some pain in my ass request such as hand-rolled salmon sushi etc {which I probably would have made for him as I’m a glutton for punishment see: baby #2}.
Lo and behold, that boy of mine took a good look around and decided that he would like a pack of fresh, ready-made pumpkin soup and beans on toast for dinner!  I’m fairly sure that on the Tired Mama Meter, that dinner selection is a 10/10.

There is nothing wrong with this fast food;

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Haha – beans on toast is great! It's our go to as well for THOSE days or nights – we've got kids with / without allergies and beans on toast just fits everyone's requirements when all mama can do is brandish a can opener and push the toaster lever down.
