Dear Mom

Please accept my sincerest apologies for ever saying the dinner you spent three hours preparing was yucky. Now I know why you were so mad.

UGH! Isn't it amazing?!?!? I can know logically that it has nothing to with me, or even with the dinner...and I still sends me straight up the wall.

And that's just when the 4-year-old does it.

It's taken me 6 years of marriage to accept that it's not a commentary on my food or my effort when the 40-year-old laces everything with Tony's Cajun Seasoning before he's even tasted it.

Is that the time I "ran away" to the front hall closet or was it the time I "ran away" to Whip Hill?
Ah, but you all turned out so well.
Love from your anonymous Mom

I know exactly how you feel. Jeff puts hot sauce or ranch on most of my meals before he tastes it. And then tells me what I could have done to make it better. Amelia is innocent, but sometimes just won't eat my dinners and it is very frustrating. If I had known that no one would eat my dinner, I would have just made grilled cheese for everyone and been done with it!

Ugh! If we had hot sauce in the house, Scott would be using it! Last week, he told me (about the cajun stuff), "It just makes everything taste so good!" And I said, "But it doesn't go with the taste of what I've cooked."

Nope. Does not compute.

A few more of these and you may understand why some mothers eventually have Cereal Nights, which give embittered mothers the chance to say, "Well, half the time you don't like what I cook anyway, but at least this way it's fast and easy to get the negative review."
At least, I think some mothers do that.
