But I'm an Only Average Mom.
I suck because I didn't know my kids were apparently famished, a half hour after their last meal.
"Lazy hungry" is the one that drives me crazy. Well, ok, crazier than I already am. Lazy hungry is when they sit on the couch, or even lay on the floor, and whine, "I'm hungry". This is more so the case with my 8 year old than with the baby. When you ask the one who is Lazy hungry what they want, the answer is, unanimously, "I don't care". My snarky size tends to sneak out at this, and reply, "If you don't care, than I guess you aren't hungry." 8 year old either agrees with me, and I tell her to pick something out of the snack cupboard, or disagrees with me, and I tell her to go find something to do, or play wii with me, or dolls with me and her sister.
Then it dawns on me. "Hungry" is occasionally code for "I'm bored". Perhaps feeding my kids attention instead of pretzels or peanut butter sandwiches is what they really need.
Until my amazing hunger-sensing superpowers kick in, I will have to wade through the waters of uncertainty, with the help of my little loves.
But then again, I AM an Only Average Mom.
And I wouldn't want it any other way.
