I don't eat breakfast or lunch so my kids can eat and I'm so so hungry!!!! Its been this way for the last 3 months... :(

I went to the dollar store with our last $10 and my daughter cried the whole time cause she wantedto get some some jello but I couldnt afford it.

So yep I fail big time!!!

 Food pantry or churches? Food stamps, family or friends?

Hope things get easier for you.. look into food pantries, assistance, anything for you. Your girl doesn't need jell-O.. she needs a healthy mama! :)

You can get the boxes of jello for like 65cents and make it. Then it will be fun for the kids and cheap.

5 moms liked this

look i have to say not eating so your kids can eat thats great ultimate sacerfice but you also need to eat look in to getting help from food banks or something 

and about your child crying because you couldnt afford jello i get how that could be upsetting but look on the bright side they have shelter and food they need no one grew up saying my child hood sucked because i didnt get jello 

so chin up look in to getting help i hope things get better for you and your family

She has a great website, and meal ideas for under $1. Her recipes are easy and go a long way (make your own pancake mix, anyone?) I hope you can get some ideas. 

You're not a fail parent. You do what you have to do. She'll forget about jello soon enough.
