When the Mad Banana Shows Up in Your Lunch - Muffin Tin Monday

Sometimes Mom has a bad day.  Sometimes the twins are sick and fussing all morning.  Sometimes it's hard just pulling lunch together without someone crying and tugging on legs.  Sometimes Mom has been up for hours during the night holding sobbing toddlers, trying to comfort them to no avail.  And sometimes, as a result, you get a mad banana in your lunch.  Complete with horns.  He is accompanied by a big pickle, a corn dog, chips (a rarity), skewers of fruit, and some mustard for dipping.

This post is linked to Muffin Tin Monday which you can find HERE.

I totally love that you added horns. It sounds like it was a tough night. It is so hard to make lunch with only one leg to move around with.

I think a toddler in the middle of the night is so much harder than a baby. At least with the baby you can do a few things and get them back to sleep. Toddlers - not so much. My son was suffering from night terrors - going to bed too tired and crying in his sleep. Even with little sleep you have put out a much nicer lunch than on one of my good days:)

Dawn said...

Oh no! SOrry about the rough night...but oh too funny about the mad banana! You're adorable:))
