How to Make a PB&J

Just in case there are any moms out there who do not know how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, here are some step by step instructions.

  1. Take out bread, peanut butter, and jelly and place them on the counter.
  2. Tell each of your children, "I am making a PB&J. Do you want one?" Be prepared with a notepad and pen to take orders. No one will want what you are making, that would be too convenient. 
  3. Make oatmeal for your 2 year-old as requested. 
  4. Put chicken noodles in the microwave for your 8 year-old. 
  5. Take out 2 slices of bread and place them on a plate. 
  6. DING! Stir the noodles and microwave for another 30 seconds. 
  7. Spread jelly on one slice of bread.
  8. Make note of 2 year-old's request for noodles also. 
  9. DING! Take noodles out and bring them to the 8 year-old who requests a bottle of water. 
  10. Put soup in microwave for 11 year old.
  11. Bring water to the 8 year-old.
  12. Spread peanut butter onto other slice of bread.  
  13. DING! Stir the soup and reset the microwave for 30 more seconds. 
  14. Make note of 2 year-old's request for soup. 
  15. DING! Stir soup. Scoop out a tiny bit into a bowl for the 2 year-old who has finished his oatmeal and is DEMANDING soup now. 
  16. Deliver soup bowls to 11 year-old and 2 year-old. 
  17. Put your sandwich together and cut it. 
  18. Make note of 2 year old who is now demanding some of your sandwich. 
  19. Pull off some of the sandwich for him. 
  20. Try to eat your sandwich as fast as possible while answering questions about school work and being climbed on by your 2 year-old who has completely lost interest in eating. 
Hershey is a bit hulkish right now since he has been on so many steroids. He is hyper, demanding, and quite rough. Today he marched up to me while Skittles was doing his language lessons and demanded to do school work. When I told him to wait a couple of minutes while I finished something up, he hit me and yelled "NO!" His first lesson for the day was one about using nice hands.

Twizzler did not do any school work today because he was sick in bed. 
  • Skittles circled the verbs and underlined the nouns in a paragraph in language lessons. 
  • Skittles took a quiz in math. Hershey built a tower with Cuisenaire blocks.
  • Skittles read about the Mycenaeans in history, then he wrote a brief narration about them. 
  • In science he read about how God gives us instincts. Then he wrote about a time when God gave him an instinct to do something right. He wrote about a time when he rescued a baby bird at his Grampy's house. 
  • He reluctantly read chapter 13 of Number the Stars. He knew we would not be going to co-op this week so he tried to get out of reading it. NOPE. Hershey and I read, Over the River A Turkey's Tale by Derek Anderson.
