Peanut Butter and Jelly

And ham and cheese.

That's what my son asked for for lunch last week. And I said, "you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?"

And he said, "Uh, yeah, and ham and cheese."

And I said, "but, not on the same sandwich... right?"

And he said, "Uh, peanut butter and jelly and ham and cheese."

"So, you want two sandwiches? A peanut butter and jelly, and a ham and cheese?"

"No, peanut butter and jelly and ham and cheese."

"Mason, you want peanut butter and jelly AND ham and cheese on the same sandwich?"


"Are you SURE? Peanut butter and jelly and ham and cheese? Between two pieces of bread. The same two pieces of bread?"

"um, yeah."

So, I set to work. I get out bread, spread the peanut butter, the jelly, and before I put any more on it, I say, " OK, Mason, I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich here. Are you SURE you want me to put cheese on it?"

"yep, cheese and ham."

"With the peanut butter and jelly, you want cheese and ham? Together?"


"okay, I just wanted to make sure before I put it all together."

So, out comes the slice of American cheese, and the ham.. I put the ham on the peanut butter side, and the cheese on the jelly side. And I am thinking, he will NEVER eat this. And feeling a little queasy.

And the sad thing is, not only did he eat it, every BITE, except for the crusts, he told me how great it was and how much he liked it. And he's asked for it again...

My son eats peanut butter, jam, cheese and mustard sandwiches. He thinks they're delicious. It makes me want to vomit.

I had one who thought cheese, mustard and ketchup was the best! Don't know which is worse at least your little guys is a bit healthier.
