I got a phone call from Annabel's preschool today in the middle of the day. The first thing I thought was that she had gotten sick or something happened and that I'd have to pick her up.
The director of the school asked me "is it okay if Annabel has a hot dog for lunch with the rest of the kids?" Haha. Annabel's school provides lunch each day but it's usually a sandwich (she doesn't like bread) and a canned vegetable (I don't like that). Today they had hot dogs and Annabel has a strange obsession with wanting to eat hot dogs all the time! Annika and I don't like them so I don't usually buy them since they go bad before Annabel finishes the whole package.
I told the director that she could have a hot dog. She thought that we were vegetarians since Annabel doesn't bring anything with meat in her lunches. We aren't, but I used to be and Annika and I eat very little meat, really only chicken. Annabel would eat an entire cow or pig if we let her!
Annabel was so happy when I picked her up today. She told me she got to eat 2 hot dogs (no bun, she told them "I no like bread"). She said she cried and was mad when they wouldn't give her a hot dog so she told them to call me and ask!
I told the director that anytime she wants to eat what the other kids eat that it's fine. I don't want her to feel left out but I know the majority of the things they eat she just won't touch.
