HOLY COW......

......I wonder why I'm broke and can't make ends meet......

W. has a friend over.
T. has a friend over.
R. has a friend over.

We have gone through:
  • 4 Danimals yogurts
  • 6 Poland Spring Aquapod water bottles.
  • 2 packages of Purdue chicken nuggets
  • 1 package of Ore-ida french fries
  • 1/2 bottle of Mott's apple juice
  • 6 M&M ice cream bars
  • 7 Dum Dum lollipops (I like cherry)
  • 2 cups of Lipton tea with sugar and milk (for me and one of the drop off moms)
  • 2 cans of Diet Pepsi (I need the caffeine)
  • 3 Advil
.....and they've only been here for three hours!

I remember those days!! And when my boys moved out, I spent a few weeks buying too much before I adjusted!

I bet your kids had fun, though!

Zephra said...

I started making Kamran's "regular" friends bring food or money cause i just can't afford it anymore.

Jennifer H said...

I'm bracing myself for those years!

The Fritz Facts said...

My mom used to say the same thing. We don't have friends over a ton, but I always stock up when I know they are coming, especially the boys!

Manager Mom said...

It's amazing how kids can eat when they put their minds to it. And they burn off the calories in about twenty minutes.

Karly said...

I stopped buying a lot of that kind of stuff and dude, I save so much money. That means I have to actually cook which SUCKS, but seriously...extra money. Love it! Going shoe shopping!

Oh, and save the chocolate dum dums for me!

It gets worse when they are teens! Better start a feeding the neighbourhood fund girl.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

Jay: They did have fun, like always. Having a house full of kids is an every day thing. We are the neighborhood play area.

Zephra: These kids are still young. Most days I make sure the kids are told to come over "after" lunch. I kick 'em out before dinner.

Jennifer: Be prepared!!

Kellyn: It's not always boys that can eat. The 11 year old girl from across the street can down 10 chicken nuggets AND a plate full of fries. I thought she was going to eat the paper plate!

Manager Mom: They eat like little piggies...but I guess they need that energy...because.they.never.stop!

Karly: Cooking? You rock. My kids are so damn picky anyway. I cook, they don't eat's a battle and then they eat cereal. You can have the chocolate ones, I don't think anyone likes the. I'll save them for BlogHer! ;)

Kelley: I KNOW! I'm so scared of that. I think I may have to have a benefit or something.

Good God woman!

So do you have a second freezer in the garage yet? ;)

butterflygirl said...

All that in 3 hours-yikes!

Mommy Cracked said...

They will eat you out of house and home, huh?
