We belong to WIC for my 2 younger children. My "govment" cheese (joke between my friend and I) has supplied us with very precious food, and has helped keep us afloat. Well, this month I have realized my middle child is now five and therefore ineligible. Because of her age she was providing a lot of milk. Five gallons of it a month....gone! I found this out just this morning as I was putting doghnuts on plates and the kids were asking for milk. I told them "Keep dreaming kiddos, milk is a luxury." ! They pretty much think I am the evil queen on steroids for denying them their morning milk. Well, that is just fine. Now I just need to figure out what to do with our 3 gallons a month. I am thinking of buying full fat milk and diluting it, or just using it for cooking? We can get our calcium from other sources...cheese, broccoli, yogurt. I am just scared that I will find a carton of milk that has been relocated to my oldest girls closet. You know, just for "safe keeping".
