Why can't you just eat the crust, kid?

I don’t understand why my daughter refuses to eat her crust. I have now resorted to playing the mean mommy card and I will not cut the crust off for her. Not that it helps, she just peels it off herself anyways.

This has really got to stop though. Remember my completely awful I-wish-I-could-erase-from-my-memory Friday? What you don’t know is that it got even better (worse?). The icing on the cake was when I got in my car after my Dr appointment to head to get a chest X-Ray. As soon as I sat down RRRIIIIIIPPPPPP. That’s right, my pants ripped. And not a tiny tear by any means. My ass was hanging out all over the place. Not exactly appropriate for going into an imaging center with. Thankfully I was close to home so I just ran home and changed real quick. My ever so lovely daughter felt that it was a good time to point out that “you are not getting fat mom, you are just growing” Thanks kid.

Fast forward to Tuesday. I got home and changed into something more casual for class (I have to dress all businessy for work). I squat down to grab my shoes and guess what. Yep. My other pair of pants ripped. Right in the ass.

Thankfully these were both just cheap Target jeans. I would have been pissed if they were my favorite pair of American Eagle jeans. Those are still hanging nicely in my closet collecting dust though. I can’t seem to fit into them anymore even though my “I just had a baby” excuse is now almost 19 months old.

So dear sweet daughter, will you please eat your crust so I don’t have to anymore? (you know, starving kids in Africa and all) My jeans would really appreciate it.


  1. Well, if it makes you feel any better, I haven't been able to fit into AE jeans or Target jeans in like 4 years. Not even their biggest size hahah. So sad, so true. My hips and bum are just too curvy.

    I'm glad you were able to make a decision about your future that you can find some peace with!!! I'm sure once you are done with work, you'll feel a lot better about the future :)

    AND... thanks for the super sweet comment on my blog!!! One step closer to nursing school, hallelujah!!

    And as much as I hope tomorrow is a better Friday, your events from last Friday STILL have me laughing hahaha :)

  2. I never ate the crusts either when I was a kid. I still don't!

    I feel ya on the jeans... I have two pair (a pair of Sevens and a pair of Paper Denim) with big holes in the crotch! I still wear them, but just to bum (no pun intended) around the house.

  3. I have a bunch of jeans in my closet from the beginning of nursing school that I no longer fit into, but secretly hope I'll fit back into once the pounds and inches magically melt off somehow. *sigh*

    What is it with kids and crusts? LOL! My daughter still won't eat her pizza crusts... meanwhile I'm trying to convince her it's the best part!
