School lunch is serious stuff

Ben came home last week and asked, "Is it bad to go against the government?." Trying to be parent of the year, I gave him a small talk about the constitution and freedom of speech. I now realize I should have maybe toned it down a bit.

1. School lunch lady tells Ben he can no longer have seconds because of the government.

2. Ben tries to create a strike, telling all the kids not to eat lunch, until seconds are reinstated.

3. Ben gets hungry, decides to strike hot lunch and tell everyone to bring cold lunch (posters and signs were made)

4. Ben would then miss the yummy peach cobbler.

5. Ben decides to simply have a petition with all the kids asking for their "seconds" back.

Ahhh, freedom of speech.


  1. That's awesome! Go Ben! Maybe you should just make the boy some peach cobbler for all his efforts.

    PS- If it makes it any better there are no seconds here and never have been :(

  2. *doubled over laughing* That is too cute - Ben's becoming quite the organizer up there! :)

  3. I hate to be Debbie Downer (well the male version anyway) but I think this would be a good time to teach him fiscal responsibility.

  4. Yep, a rioter. That's one of Jill's kids.
