I feel so bad! I completely forgot to feed my DS any lunch!
DH came home unexpectedly at lunchtime and I made sandwiches for us all but stuck some babyfood in the microwave to heat for DS.
I just went to heat up DS's evening meal and there was the lunch - still in the microwave (cold of course)
Poor lad.
He is really whingey and it never occurred to me that he might be hungry
Poor poor unloved and unfed boy.

I forgot to breastfeed DD about a month ago. I was just going out of the door to work when DH said "have you fed her?". She then had to wait until she got her breakfast at nursery. And was apparently grumpy with it.

DS2 went without lunch today as well. He fell asleep just before 12 and I didn't want to wake him. When he did wake up he asked to go to Nursery. It was 1.50 and I had been totally oblivious to the time (nursery starts at 1.20). Mad panic to get him ready and take him. Only realised after I got home again that he hadn't had lunch.

Baaaaaaad mummy

DD did the sleeping at an inconvenient time today as well. so she had lunch in the changing room of the swimming baths. Knew she'd have time to eat a cheese sandwich and a banana while DS was messing.
