Peanut Butter and Cheese

Ever since he could finally talk, D1 has had a favorite sandwich. He made it up himself, when he was about 3.

“What do you want for lunch son?”

“Eenut utter  an eese.”

“Peanut butter and cheese? On a sandwich?!”

“Es, eese!”

That first time he asked for it, I was pretty much shocked. (And yes, that is how he talked. We dealt with childhood apraxia of speech for many years.)

And he came up with this all by himself! Peanut butter and cheese sandwiches.  He’s 11 now and not much has changed. He still LOVES these sandwiches, but now he makes his own, and he uses THREE pieces of bread for a double decker sandwich!

I love that my son, who we were told would be very delayed, came up with his own sandwich. I love that he enjoys preparing food (ok truth be told the boy can OUT-EAT all of us and so it’s pretty self-serving, but still!) And I love that the “expert” was wrong about him. He struggles but not to the extent she said that he would.

Creativity? We’ve got that covered. God’s got the rest. Are you trusting God with your kids?

    Judging by that last picture, God's got "adorable" covered, too!

      Thanks Heidi! Gosh I had forgotten how CUTE he was when he was 3! He's just 3" shorter than me now, so he looks me in the eye when he stands in front of me. So hard to believe he was that small!! :)

    My hubby and son both love jelly and cheese sandwiches. Grosses me out but they like it. :). He looks like he is enjoying his sandwich.

      Jelly and cheese? Eewww. That's one I haven't heard of! To each his-or her- own! :) I don't do PB and cheese either though. He still loves those sandwiches and he's 11!

        Just wanted to let you know, I’ve been eating peanut butter and cheese for the last 30 years. It started as a dare by my brother when I was 3 or 4, and it stuck. I need a big glass of milk to chase it down though. Grosses most people out…but I will point out the long running popularity of peanut butter on cheese crackers.

          LOL! Thanks for that Matt! It’s been a while since I’ve looked at this post and my son’s PB and Cheese sandwiches. I knew he couldn’t be the only one who enjoyed this odd sandwich. He’s 13 now and still likes his cheddar and peanut butter. :)
