  • No mama, you are def. NOT alone on that one! That's why they make canned pastas & soups. Cereal works too! We are not Super Moms 24/7. You are entitled to a guilt-free break from KP duty! :)

  • We have fend for yourself nights. There are always leftovers or frozen things or microwave masterpieces, of cereal of course. lol

  • Close enough - around here it's just grazing - I throw a bunch of fruit and veggies on a plate with some cheese and crackers, kind of do it yourself lunchables without the salt lick ham.

  • I try to have left overs as much as possible.

    But I'm right there with you. I had the kids eating pancakes one night. We get tired too mama

  • I joke about giving them cereal but honestly on those nights they get PB&J, applesauce and goldfish crackers!

  • Heck no, you're not the only one. My daughter would be tickled to death if I let her have cereal for dinner. That only happens when she gets sick, but it's tempting to cave in sometimes.

  • I don't whip up a meal from scratch every night for my son. Unless he only asked for cereal I wouldn't only offer cereal. I try to make sure he at least has something more filling.

  • No, I always cook for my son, and anyone else. But if I'm hungry myself, I can never be bothered, and then the toast or cereal comes out. Very strange!
