This meal thing makes me insane.

Today Younger Boy wanted to skip lunch at lunch time.  That needs to be clarified, because both boys WHOLEHEARTEDLY think you must eat three meals a day in the correct order.

If you sleep until 2PM and get up and eat it is in fact breakfast.  During the remainder of the day lunch and dinner must still be eaten.

Today was no exception.  Since Younger Boy chose not to eat lunch at daycare the meal I gave him at 5:15PM was lunch. 

At 8PM he informed Middle Boy that he hadn't had dinner yet so he made him scrambled eggs.  In his mind he was NOT getting his three meals which in foster care he is REQUIRED to receive.

This black and white thinking makes me CRAZY.

Prayers for thinking between black and white and not so literal.
