AIBU to have given the DC leftover Domino Pizza for breakfast?

(87 Posts)

It was in the fridge from last night. 3 slices. DH was going out early so had already had his breakfast. It is the holidays. It felt like a bit of fun, you know "Hey DCs, fancy pizza for breakfast."

DH (albeit kind of jokingly) said it was a disgrace and with a head-shaking grin went out.

DCs enjoyed minuscule slice of cold pizza, then some toast.

They normally get a pretty good, well balances, mainly cooked from scratch diet.

Later on DH said he wasn't totally joking and please could we not do that again. He feels it sends the wrong message to DCs (age 4 and 6) to have leftover "treat" food like that for breakfast.

He is not normally so...er...uptight (normally is me)....so now wondering if he is just having a moment. Or was IBU to give them pizza for breakfast?

I can't imagine living with someone who was like that. We certainly have heated debates about whether pink salmon should be used to give the cat a worm tablet, whether it will actually end the world if a dog climbs on the table, ok finger paints are not the best purchase when you have a white sofa and so on but it just means we have a smeary sofa, dog drool on the table and a happy cat. In the scheme of things not a huge issue, i, however, could not bear to live with someone who did not have joy in their hearts whatever the chaos.

And I am responding to the OP not the subsequent drip feed.

Numberlock Sun 31-Mar-13 06:59:43

So basically he's worried it's a short hop from pizza for breakfast to crack cocaine use?

Sounds fun in your house. How does he handle anything that actually matters?

Numberlock Sun 31-Mar-13 07:04:26

And you're going to have to spell out this wrong message it's sending, I'm not getting it?

OP, that's great you are feeling better - the spring in the air and the buds on the trees are doing that for me too, and it is a great feeling. And it's great that you can recognise the part your DH had in helping you get there.

My dp has been brilliant too through this hard period. And you know what, he is allowed his pompous little moments now I am more emotionally robust because he has emotional frailities too...

...and as in your case, this doesn't make me love him less.

We have left over pizza in the fridge that is earmarked for breakfast. Home made by DH too, including the base. stealth boast

But as everyone else will not be up for at least another hour and I'm hungry now they might not get any. grin

TobyLerone Sun 31-Mar-13 08:57:00

I'm all about the cooking healthily and from scratch normally, but who hasn't done this?!

YANBU.

My mum used to wake us up on the first day of the holidays and pretend it was a school day and then say "not really, it's the holidays, have a lie in!"

Should I retrospectively sue her?

Skygirls Sun 31-Mar-13 09:13:51

Mmmm cold pizza for breakfast! YANBU.
There's nothing wrong with this once in a while.
It's chocolate Easter eggs for brekkie this morning with rice crispies and milk for afters
grin

Happy Easter to one and all!

Hesterton & Hiphop have it spot on. I am chilled enough to have fun over breakfast. DH is relaxed enough about my mental state to question me (even though he is being VVU grin) - he is not wary I will go into a controlling funk or martyred humph. And to me, the fact it is him having the thought - "whoa is this relaxed too far" rather than gently trying to help me chill out a bit is just fucking marvellous in this household. I have been the pompous one for years. He is allowed to. I have never met anyone with more integrity than my DH. I am allowed to be amused by the fact his integrity has for some reason be focused on Dominos for breakfast. I am amused by the fact I can tease him about it. I can love him for the fact this whole Pizzagate has demonstrated how far we have come.

So despair over my relationship if you will. Despair over the lack of "joy in our hearts" or in my life if you want to. Wonder how my DH deals with things that "actually matter" (like supporting me fantastically through a really tough few years).

This thread to me has shown me
1) I like Domino's for breakfast
2) I shall give the DCs Dominos again (only if I cannot manage to find a way to scoff it all myself)
3) Mumsnet has been instrumental in helping me get better
4) My DH has played an even bigger role. And I love him. Despite his horrific, petty, Banning-Domino-Pizza-For-Breakfast flaws.

Chocolate for breakfast anyone?

theodorakisses Sun 31-Mar-13 09:15:26

Shouldn't we all be having Easter eggs for breakfast today?

theodorakisses Sun 31-Mar-13 09:15:42

I had cheese and onion Hula Hoops

ChasingDogs Sun 31-Mar-13 09:24:34

I've just got a mug of black coffee sad and it's only instant, not even special coffee sad and I've just got back from a long, cold walk sad I could do serious damage to cold pizza right now sad

I have changed my mind. Your DH is correct, dominos for breakfast is a slippery decent into a total lack of standards. You'll be pooing on the roof or something next.

Send all future left overs to me. I shall dispatch of them in a suitable manner grin

I prefer pizza the next day! It's the holidays tell him to chill out its all about doing something different from the usual routine.

Numberlock Sun 31-Mar-13 10:32:39

You seem to have it all sorted then, OP. Good to hear. Just not sure why you felt the need to ask the question if all is so good.

Theicingontop Sun 31-Mar-13 10:36:11

Well your DH would have a tut-fit at me! DS fell asleep at his second birthday party before he could have any of cake, so I gave him some for breakfast the next day grin

Ywnbu. If your childrens' diet is anywhere close to normal they'll view pizza for breakfast as what it is - a treat, a bit of fun.

Samu2 Sun 31-Mar-13 10:38:50

Mine had an Easter Egg for breakfast grin

Babyroobs Sun 31-Mar-13 10:43:01

My Dc's are currently eating leftover Dominoes for breakfast, well that and Easter Eggs !

livinginwonderland Sun 31-Mar-13 11:26:49

well, i had cheese on toast and some jellybeans, so i'm not doing much better!

Numberlock thread started mostly just for a bit of fun...

SomethingOnce Sun 31-Mar-13 16:36:46

YANBU - breakfast of champions!

theodorakisses Sun 31-Mar-13 16:56:08

Well the fun was only introduced after drip feeds. Read your original OP and it sounds like a bleak life.

Ho hum. Think I'll steer clear of here. I was not asking if my life was bleak. I did not ask if my DH was being unreasonable. Or pompous. Or out of order. I asked if I was being unreasonable to feed my DCs leftover pizza. Do you know what...the additional "drip feeding" was not intentional. It has actually been a bit of a micro-emotional journey for me...pizzagate has made me realise how far I have come. That actually i don't feel bleak anymore.

So thank you for your pity patronising dourness accusations of bleakness kindly expressed concern.

I am very glad I was BNU and in fact being VVR. Thank you to those who have just shared my mini pizzagate journey. And apologies for any dripfeeding.

Oh and boiled eggs an chcocolate for breakfast and now simnel cake for tea grin

theodorakisses Sun 31-Mar-13 18:38:26

well ho hum, it is AIBU, not a tea party and you stated by asking was he BU? I agree that people can sound a bit harsh but DV and miserable people are a factor in AIBU. In chat, phrased differently, would have been received differently but if the OP is in that stance, don't blame people for judging because AIBU is asking for judgement of anyone in the story. I am sure that he is a lovely man following your latest posts but you can't blame people for reacting. The last guy I lived with went mental when our cooker broke and made me admit it was my fault, the man I married however, didn't really show any annoyance when I cracked our 8 ring ceramic when trying to catch a spider before he got sucked into the sucky in thing.

16 year old ds here. Total health freak. Constantly lectures his siblings re their sugar/fat intake. Plays loads of sport, does weights every night, monitors his own sat fat/sugar intake (a bit obsessively I think), eats loads of fruit and veg.

ABSOLUTELY LOVES cold pizza for breakfast.
