A Challenge

Mr. Ashley: Hey, next week is Passover or something and he can't have bread, cookies or crackers in his lunch.

Ashley: Really?? Wow. So no peanut butter, no meat and cheese together, no bread, no cookies, no crackers? Okaaaaaay, but that will be a challenge.

Big Kid: I dest wanna hab cookies and bwead and sometimes cwackers.

Ashley: It's just for a week, and you can have it at home, not a big deal.

Big Kid: It is a big deal for me! I dest like to hab dose fings sometimes.

Ashley: Well, we choose to go to a religious school so we have to show respect for them and follow their religious rules. This is how the Jewish people do it, it's their holiday and we'll learn what it's all about. Maybe you and I could do a project together and find out the story behind Passover.

Bid Kid: I DON'T WANT TO DO PROJECTS, I DEST WANNA HAB COOKIES SOMETIMES. So dere. (turns his back to me and crosses his arms). I'm not eben talkin' about it anymore.

Ashley: Alrighty then.

What is he supposed to eat? Sardines?

MATZA! There are crackers made out of matza that he can have. Go to the "ethnic" aisle in the supermarket and you'll find all kind of Jewish delights ;)

Wait - aren't they just closed for Passover?!!! Our preschool is which I secretly think is because it's nearly impossible to send a 4-year old friendly dairy-only-Kosher for Passover lunch for a whole damn week!

Way to put your foot down Big Kid. You sure told "DEM"

Too Funny.

HeeHeeHee - I was laughing at the post but then Catfishelstein's name killed me. You have the coolest friends and when I grow up I want to be just like you and them!

Love it! sometimes "Alrighty then" is the ONLY answer.

Why can't the Jews just feed him for the week? They can explain why he can't have cookies. It's like they expect you to do everything.

Poor BK. He just wants to be able to have cookies sometimes. :) Give the boy a cookie. I like the pp's idea about checking out the Jewish foods in the grocery store. How about fruit salad?

Um, not to make your life more difficult than it already is.. (LOL) but, you can MAKE him passover appropriate cookies and even CAKE! Like Catfish suggested, go to the Jew section of your store and you will be amazed what they have! Also, the matzoh comes in a bunch of delish flavors and one fave of mine, since I was a little kid, was to spread sweet butter on the egg ones and then sprinkle with sugar. Yummm, as a matter of fact, I think it's time for a matzoh snack, as we speak! LOL
