My plan was to get my son, Zeph, to help me make some snacks for him to take to school. He had shown some kind of interest in the idea when I mentioned it on the walk back from school.

“Come & give us a hand Zeph.” I called from the kitchen.

“I’m just having a jib.” He called back from under his duvet.

“Come on, you said you’d give me a hand to make these.” I reminded him.

“But I’m having a jib.” He repeated.

If ‘jibbing‘ was an Olympic event, my boy would win bronze, silver & gold.

“Come & weigh this bit out & you can go back to what you’re doing.” I tried to entice.

He reluctantly came out to the kitchen.

“What you being all stroppy about?” I asked. “I thought you wanted to make these.”

“Dad, I don’t even like flapjacks!” He informed me rather bluntly.

“Oh, ok.” I replied knowing that these things happen, often. “I guess you’ll just have to get to like ’em.”

I put one in his breakfast box the next morning for his mid-morning snack. The box came back empty but for the cling film the flapjack was wrapped in.

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
