There was absolutely no way in hell I could send the 7 year old with nothing to share, so I put on my big mum panties and walked into the 7 year olds room and gave him a list of things that I could bake:
*Peanut butter fudge slice
*ham and cheese scrolls
The 7 year old looked at me and said "you know everyone else in year 2 can have sugar??" I replied with "yes and they won't even know it has a different sweetener!" He rolled his eyes and went "yes they will and I'm just going to eat what the other mums bring."
I think he sensed that my feelings were a little hurt, so he backed up his argument with" I do love all those things, but I think if you bring the no sugar ones, then I will have to eat them instead of other peoples stuff and if you don't bring them, then I can have whatever I want (kid logic)
I wasn't in the mood to argue and is it bad that I was actually doing a happy dance inside my head because I was rejoicing that I didn't have to stay up now and bake.
Just because I wasn't baking didn't mean I was off the hook. I decided to raid the pantry to see what I could pass off, as looking like I had made an effort. I found a bag of kettle chips that had those mini packets in them. 5 Honey Soy, 5 Salt and Vinegar and 5 plain.
So I did what any amazing Martha Stewart Goddess of a mother would do. I found a nice container (cause its all about the presentation) and opened up 10 mini packets of chips and poured them onto the plate.
Can I say for the record that the chips were the first things devoured and gone…
The 7 year old came over to me and said "wow, great cooking mum! Everyone loved those chips you made!!"
