Mother Of The Year
Half an hour ago Paige (5) came to me saying "Mom, I am really hungry".

Really, I thought? She usually doesn't want anything to eat until around 10:00 a.m..

I thought about what she had for dinner last night. I couldn't remember feeding her.

I was shocked to realize that I had FORGOTTEN TO FEED MY CHILD DINNER.

No wonder she was hungry.

Our evening was kind of off because we had a fellow homeschooling family over for a few hours. They left about 6:00 p.m.. I had made dinner in the crock pot and everyone just served themselves. The boys were watching a movie in the playroom together and Samantha and I watched the Dancing With The Stars Results Show we had taped the night before.

In this change of routine no one fed the five year old.

I have no idea what she was doing or why she didn't ask for food.

Still, I should have realized.

I am feeling like an awful mother this morning.

Please tell me one of you has done something like this at one time or another. Please.

LOL You are not a bad mom. She proved this morning that she will speak up when she's hungry.
I have a 5 yr old and a 7 yr old that they both eat like birds. They pick at their food. I'm constantly trying to get them to eat! But they always voice their hunger when they get hungry.

Would it make you feel better to know that I've fed my daughter cereal for dinner before?? More than once??

I'm sorry...but that is so funny. She must have been really busy playing or something! Glad you realized it when she asked for food today! :)

Ah, motherhood.

She must of not been too hungry or she would have said something. Around here my family won't ever let me forget. Around 4:00 they are constantly asking me "What's for supper?" And on a really crazy wacked out day we've also done good ole cereal.

I forget stuff all the time. Yes, I have also forgotten to feed my kid. Usually it's lunch, not dinner though.

Thanks for sharing,

When my oldest daughter turned 1, we had relatives over for supper. She took a late nap (which was nice for serving all that company) and woke up in time for cake. I realized the next morning, when thinking about how energetically she ate the cake, that I forgot to feed her supper first. I bet that cake tasted very good!! :-)
I am excited for your family for your decision to adopt. I'm praying the rest of the process goes well. You are living Jesus to your new children and to your family. I am humbled by your example. Thanks for sharing!

Aw, don't beat yourself up. As you can see, your daughter will speak up when she's hungry. She must have been fine that night.

at least you COOKED dinner! I forgot to even make it once. They haven't let me make that mistake twice.

Ok you got me laughing real hard on this one. (just because I am glad I am not the only one!!)

That is when I say "What you didn't know? It is open kitchen night."
