When I came home from work today, my boys had a request. It was a simple, "Can you please go to the grocery store today?!" I guess that means that they were hungry and nothing that I had in the fridge or the pantry was very appetizing to them. Their request had some stipulations with it, too. So, I decided to share their "grocery list" along with my thoughts on each request.
1. Anything we can eat when you're not here.
(So, that would be anything that I buy, right?)
2. Snack food, such as snack packs, lunchables, dunkaroos, peanut butter crackers, peanut butter.
(Snack packs/lunchables are not worth the price when it would take more than one per TEENAGE boy to know that they even ate anything! Dunkaroos may be a possibility. Peanut butter crackers and peanut butter, that I can do.)
3. No more hotdogs or noodle cups.
(Do you sense that they have eaten A LOT of these?! :) )
4. Foods to eat late at night.
(Again, wouldn't this be ANYTHING that I buy?!)
5. Cereal and milk. REESE'S PUFFS, LUCKY CHARMS.
(My boys go through A LOT of cereal and milk. They view cereal and milk as a snack. They can easily go through a box a day. Therefore, we ALWAYS run out of cereal and milk before the week is up.)
6. Drinks: Yoohoos.
(When I told them that Yoohoos don't last long enough for as much as they drink them, Jordan had an alternative. Purity or Mayfield chocolate milk. Did you notice how he mentioned the highest priced brands? But, I can't really argue against them wanting milk, now can I?)
7. Orange juice in the carton, NOT the pulp kind.
(Again, VERY specific instructions. lol)
8. Ham & cheese
(Because anytime that they are hungry and I don't want to cook, I tell them to fix a ham sandwich.)
So, what is on your kids' grocery list?
