That? It's just the sound of me banging my head against the wall

It's 3 o'clock and G is just realizing that he didn't eat lunch. He finds some lunchmeat and starts making himself a couple of sandwiches. Monkey wanders in and announces excitedly that G is making him sandwiches. G corrects him. I ask Monkey if he would like a sandwich too. This is what I get for trying to be nice and make my kid a second lunch:
Me: Would you like a sandwich?
Monkey: Yes.
Me: We don't have any lunchmeat you can have so it will have to be peanut butter and jelly.
Monkey: No.
Me: No sandwich? okay.
Monkey: Sandwich.
Me: I can only make you peanut butter and jelly. Daddy's sandwich will make you sick. Do you want peanut butter and jelly, or nothing?
Monkey: No. Just peanut butter
Me: Just peanut butter? No jelly?
Monkey: No jelly. Just peanut butter........with jelly.
