To have given my son a tin of tomatoes for breakfast

(96 Posts)
JeezyOrangePips Tue 08-Jan-13 08:22:50

My son is a teenager, and more than capable of getting breakfast for himself, but I tend to get his breakfast when I get mine.

This morning I asked him what he wanted. The usual answer is toast or cereal. Today he said 'food'.

He refused to expand on his answer, so I've left him with a tin of tomatoes.


HollyTheHedgehog Tue 08-Jan-13 08:24:28

Meh, let him get his own.



Ragwort Tue 08-Jan-13 08:25:33

No, but perhaps you are being too reasonable in asking him what he wants if he is going to be rude back. Either leave him to sort his own breakfast out or put the cereal in a bowl and leave it at that ........ making sure he cleans up his own mess of course.

I thought it was mildly amusing.

Oh well sad

MrsToddsShortcut Tue 08-Jan-13 08:27:04

I thought it was mildly amusing too...grin

Put some ketchup on top to make it more interesring for him!

I love tinned tomatoes on hot buttered toast. I virtually lived on that when I was at uni. yum.

Lucky boy.

My son would think all his birthdays had arrived at once.

I love tinned tomatoes on toast too smile

EllieArroway Tue 08-Jan-13 08:34:05

Well, aren't you charming, Holly hmm

As the mother of a teen boy who is exactly the same, OP, I find it quite funny.

Whenever I ask mine what he wants he says "Don't care" then complains about what he gets. We can't win.

Tomatoes are highly nutritious, so you are being a good mum wink

JeezyOrangePips Tue 08-Jan-13 08:34:45

Ooh I would never have thought of tomatoes on toast. Must try that sometime!

FellatioNelson Tue 08-Jan-13 08:35:54

I regularly eat tinned tomatoes for breakfast so YANBU.

MalibuStac Tue 08-Jan-13 08:41:56

YANBU my son would probably have tried to have a bag of crisps on the way out the door. At least tomatoes are nutritious.

Like the sound of tinned tomatoes on toast. Must try that.

Binkyridesagain Tue 08-Jan-13 08:44:00

Try tinned tomatoes on cheese on toast, tis good

EnjoyResponsibly Tue 08-Jan-13 08:47:44

Love tomatoes on toast.

Holly didn't your mother teach you what to do if you've nothing nice to say or post? hmm

gastrognome Tue 08-Jan-13 08:53:11

Made me laugh! And no, YANBU.

My 2 year old had breadsticks with pesto for breakfast today.

Sugarice Tue 08-Jan-13 08:56:45

Me too for tomatoes on toast with chilli flakes and Worcester sauce .grin

notsofrownieface Tue 08-Jan-13 08:59:53

Ooh tomatoes on toast, may have to rethink my breakfast now. grin

Oh and yanbu it was funny.

MarcelineTheVampireQueen Tue 08-Jan-13 09:05:44

Each time he says it from now on, you should leave more random things on the table, jar with one pickle, cup of oats, half an onion... Really freak him out!

Holly, you are fierce charming altogether. I can't wait to read your next witty observation. .

NewYearNewNN Tue 08-Jan-13 09:08:52

I'm going to try this on dd1 next time she's having a teenager moment about a meal!

PureQuintessence Tue 08-Jan-13 09:09:43

No, Yanbu. If he is rude, just let him get his own, or some other amusing random food item, like suggested upthread.

I cant wait for Holly to mature into a teenager soon! Hopefully this time next year she will have come quite far!

anewyear Tue 08-Jan-13 09:16:19

Ds2 (11) would be happy with a tin of plum tomatos too for breakfast..

TeeBee Tue 08-Jan-13 09:25:18

You make his breakfast?? Shit, I feel a bit bad now, my 7 year old makes his own. Maybe I'm being lazy.
Mmmmm, I fancy tomatoes on toast now too.

ILoveTIFFANY Tue 08-Jan-13 09:27:37

Ha ha!!!

Did he eat it op??

BunFagFreddie Tue 08-Jan-13 09:29:21

YANBU and having a DS myself, that tickled me. If he's a teenager, he's more than capable of sorting himself out.
