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?

Yanbu I bet your dh just wanted the left over pizza for himself

Wish mine would eat cold pizza next morning (supermarket plus my greedy extra toppings.) Would make the odd breakfast a bit easier.

Oh and OP I get you.

OH has been depressed recently (reactive depression), was a bit of a mini arse the other day, was great because until then he didn't have the ? Strength ? To be an arse? If that makes sense.

Oh I did pull him up on it and we did have a mini argument, but the fact that he had enough in him to argue was great, I do know what you mean. Hard to explain.

I personally have never got the whole this is breakfast food this is lunch food this is dinner food this is supper food thing.

I don't really 'do' breakfast, well I do but I have to be up and moving for an hour or so before I can eat, before that anything more than water and I puke. OH can eat a full English 2seconds after he opens his eyes.

Food is food.

Most of the world that can afford to eat breakfast have rice for breakfast.

Opps - I shall retract my passive-aggressive Ho Hum! Re-reading OP it does sound a bit...well if not necessarily bleak, certainly a bit meh. Didn't mean to drip feed though - was more expecting a few more of the "too much salt/sugar/fat/additives" flaming and was tbh a bit confused when our/my life got roasted too. DH deserved his pomposity to be teased - but (and I suppose because I know him) he didn't deserve to be tarred with the amount of "bleak kill-joy" stuff he was getting (that was me of old grin).

And again - part of my unintended mini-journey, am actually please that my reaction to his flaming was to feel all lioness-roaring-defensive - how dare the vipers of MN attack MY DH.. Again, shows me how far I/we have come.

So apologies for unintentional drip-feeding (didn't realise that this was actually about more than pizza), apologies for defensive reactions.

But not sorry for giving DCs Dominos (well apart from being pissed off at having to share it). Will I do it again?....Hmmm...not if I can help it - only because I want it all for me. Not because of anything DH says....though I may dress it up as scrambled pizza or egg on pizza.

And thank you all for helping me on my unintentional, but for me emotionally uplifting pizzagate-journey. thanks

YANBU and all this thread has done is make me want dominos pizza.

Two words to rid you of your guilt at not giving proper breakfast food PIZZA-EGGS! Cut the pizza into bite size bits, mix in eggs and scramble. Clearly a proper breakfast and it tastes amazing. Want to order pizza now so I can have some tomorrow.

Bollocks, bunny fail!

Bleurgh, why ruin good left over pizza with salad? [bgrin]

I don't think junk food for breakfast is at all good.Couldn't you have given them a small slice with some salad for their lunch if you really had to.

stressyBessy22 Sun 31-Mar-13 18:57:59

Just be aware that one slice of a dominos pizza contains more than half teheir daily salt allowance and 2 teaspoons of sugar!

That's the whole point of having pizza for dinner. Cold pizza in the morning with sweet hot tea. Yummy. (That's actually made me vomit a bit due to all day morning sickness, but pre-pregnancy it was yummy).

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.

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.

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 16:56:08

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

YANBU - breakfast of champions!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mine had an Easter Egg for breakfast grin

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.

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.

sweetiepie1979 Sun 31-Mar-13 10:05:06

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.

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
