So being school holidays dd & ds have bern playing alot more with tbe neighborhood kids always at eachothers houses and playing in the street which is great.
My question is when it comes to food and snacks and drinks? Morning tea is usually fresh fruit and nuts or yogurt for us, lunch sandwiches or leftovers or eggs whatever goes, afternoon tea fruit or slice biscuts ect. I was out of politness and offering the other children a piece of fruit at morning tea time as I cut it up fruit salad style anyway and think its rude my kids eating and the others not. Well I think thats were I.went wrong. Ive made a few plates of sandwiches too and given water ice blocks if my kids have asked for them.
But now I find these kids are aaking for food here and going into my fridge freezer for iceblocks and whatever! Im going through food like its going out of fashion and it doesnt help cos dd & ds are so generous they share anyway.
I did notice the mum across the road whom ive fed her kids 4 days last week sent my 2 home as they wanted a drink and that's ok. But her kids came back with my kids and her 2 had iceblocks and mine didn't. I quizzed dd as she's 6 and she said their mum only had 2 iceblocks and she was thirsty and the mum said go home for a drink? On the other hand another mum gives them what they want when they want it.
I dont know what to do really, these kids eat heaps and im going through more iceblocks than the mr whippy van. Do I say no or oblige to the im hungry and thirsty? I should say also id never deny a drink of water to any child, everytime ive offered food ive made them run home to ask if thats ok so the mothers are well aware the children are eating here.
