Is Your Sandwich a Girl sandwich or a Boy sandwich?

Ever since the colored toes incident (http://denisedykstra.blogspot.com/2009/08/colored-toes.html) I have been asked a million times, mostly by S4, what is girl things and what are boy things. You may think I exaggerate it a bit, but, it seriously has become a constant question war. Truly.

For example....

S1 asked if I would make him a tuna fish sandwich for his lunch. So, I made him, his Daddy and S3 a tuna fish sandwich. S2 must have a peanut butter and honey sandwich every day of lunch, no change at all to this, it MUST be peanut butter AND honey, I don't even bother to ask him anymore if he would like anything else. It is a tear filled panic day if he realizes he forgot his lunch and must eat the school lunch, it's as though by eating it it will weaken and poison him for forever. Anyhow, I made the tuna sandwiches.

At lunch time at home, I asked S4 if he wanted a tuna sandwich.

"Is that a boy sandwich or a girl sandwich?"

"It's both."

"I think it's a girl sandwich."

"No, your daddy and brothers are having it for lunch."

"Hmmm, I think it's not good. It makes me nervous. I think I want a hot dog."

Why argue? We had hot dogs. But I didn't eat a tuna sandwich either, if he seen him moma eat it it would forever be a girl sandwich.

Just a peek at conversations at our home.
