I am happy to report that Bigs’ behavior was better today, but unhappy to report that it soured after I already included a lunch dessert in the lunch I just packed for him. As I sit here typing this, and also browning onions for our kielbasa dinner, he is in timeout, thrashing about his room, screaming, and stomping on the floor. I think I felt another gray hair pop up.
Since I already packed him a lunch dessert, I am hopping he earns it back.
I made a homemade PB&J Uncrustable. I have this little tool that pinches off the crust (and makes it into a square). I love this tool since it doesn’t waste a lot of the bread (only a thin part of the crust). It’s called the Wonder Sandwich Sealer N Decruster. I think I got it at Target on clearance a while back. Anyways, I pressed down the edges with a fork to further seal in the PB&J. I packed my homemade fruit snacks, Goldfish crackers, carrot chips, and three mini homemade chocolate chip cookies. It’s like a little (and healthier!) Lunchable.
I really hope his behavior allows him to enjoy his Lunchable as a whole, versus having an empty cookie spot.
Hope springs eternal!
