I am one of those parents…that lets their kid eat bologna. Yes, I know it’s not exactly the healthiest thing I could feed my child but Ella has become fixated on it.
She eats bologna for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight snack. Sometimes she even has to have it in the middle of the night. I have been awakened more times than I can count to the refrains of “BA-WON-IE!!!! JUICE!!!! MAMA!!!!
“BA-WON-IE” requests are often met around 3 a.m. in the middle of a dead sleep. If it means I can get a few more hours shut eye…by all means, eat some bologna.
I am ashamed to admit I have woke up in the morning with dried bologna in my bed…and the bright red stain of Kool-Aid on my sheets. The things I will do for sleep amazes me.
I have often thought of using that plastic rind around the bologna to engineer some type of bologna necklace so I won’t have to get up in the middle of the night. A self-feeder, if you will.
Some people count sheep to go to sleep…Ella counts bologna rolls.
