How I drive my kids to the bottle.

"Mom? What's for dinner?"

"Food."

"Yah but Mom, whatcha fixin?"

"Dinner."

"Whatcha fixin' for dinner?"

"Food."

"What kind of FOOD?"

"The kind you eat."

"Mom! What kind of FOOOD is it!!"

"Hot food."

"WHAT KIND OF HOT FOOOD!!!???"

"The kind you eat."

"WHAT ARE WE HAVING FOR DINNNNNERRRRR????"

"Food."

"MOMMMMMMMMMM!"

  1. When our youngest one used to ask Annie that question & she told him what she was fixing, he almost always answered, "Yuck!" So she finally started answering his question with, "Good Yuck." That kind of caused him to stop asking. But it sure does sound familiar.

  3. It's cruel, but not unusual :)

    If MissB bugs me about dinner, I usually reply "shit... with sugar, if you're lucky". Yeah, I know it's wrong...

  7. My kids: "What's for dinner?"

    Me: "Dunno. Whatcha makin'?"

    Irritates the hell out of them, but they always leave the room.

  8. Yep, this conversation happens almost every night at my house too. I've resorted to answering similarly to what dick said...

    "Mom...what's for dinner?"
    Me:"Yuck I don't like that."
    "No...what are you making for dinner?"
    Me:"We're having yuck I don't like that!"
    "MOM!KNOCK IT OFF!! WHAT'S FOR DINNER?"
    Me: Roast with potatoes and carrots.
    "Yuck, I don't like that"
    Me: "See...told ya!"
