"Mom I am hungry I want a snack."
"You can wait until snack time."
"Mom I am hungry now"
"You can wait a half hour"
Then about 10 mins to snack or lunch time.
"Mom I need food"
"Ok ok just a minute"
"Mom Mom I need food"
"Ok I will get you (insert appropriate snack or food for time of day here)"
While I am in the kitchen getting them the food I hear "Mom I want food, mom I want some food, mom I am hungry."
"Ok I am getting it"
"Mom I want food, I want food now"
"I am getting it it takes a minute."
"Mom I want food, Mom I want food, Mom I want food."
I don't understand how they can ALWAYS be hungry and why when they can see me in the kitchen getting them food they still feel the need to remind me that I need to get them food.
I could probably save myself this conversation by just letting them get their own snacks (we have a you are not allowed to just go into the kitchen and get yourself food rule), but then they would probably eat fruit snacks and granola bars all the time.
