My mom does not host Easter because the house she is living in is to small for her side of the family, so we drive two hours south to my uncles. We leave the house around 10:30am, but my sister and I take a separate car than my mom. The reason we do so is because my sister and I have to leave before my mom to drive two hours back up to Wisconsin to my dads. When we arrive to my uncles house we greet everyone and just hang around talking to each other. Uncle Keith who is my moms brother loves to cook, so he preps our Easter meal.
Most of our meals, when we were lucky enough to have one, consisted of soup, beans, or stew and precious little of that. My oldest brother Mikey sometimes would find food in garbage cans from behind places in the towns we traveled through. I was so young then that I never knew where the food came from, and I remember how thankful Father and Mother were that our family had anything at all. I remember that Father always said the same little prayer before we would eat, but there never seemed to be enough to go around. The day before my fifth birthday, Mother became ill. Now I know that it was because we did not have enough food.
Later we learned that his heart had stopped while he was driving on the freeway due to an infection in his heart. Therefore his car went out of control when he lost consciousness, and drifted into the oncoming traffic. Unbeknownst to my mom and me, we went home and I went to my friend Land's house, who lived downstairs in the condo complex that we lived in at the time. We spent the entire afternoon together and surprisingly my mom didn't even call me up for dinner, so I stayed with them and we had a barbecue. I remember sitting on the bench eating a grilled Portobello mushroom, relaxing with Land and his parents, and thinking how great life was.

I lasted two weeks before i gave in to my cravings and had a, practically, raw steak with lemon, and so much chili it made my eyes water. Eating meat was, and is, my fondest memory of Mexico, eating meat was a family tradition, and meat was the one thing I knew and loved. Along with this my parents and family members were not very understanding of my decision. At parties the only thing i could usually eat was rice and at school vegetarian options were very minimal and quite disgusting. Letting go of such a big part of my life was a huge struggle however I was determined to do so.
As we were so hungry we ate all the food dividing it to ourselves. When the fight is over and if it’s calm outside my mother used to tell me stories about how the war began and many more stories. I was the first son and I just had one brother. When the war began there was a law set out that at least one in a family must join the army. We were so afraid because our father was the only one in our family, so they came to our house and took my dad with them.

Middle class family, struggling to survive. A lone mother taking care of three little girls and one fifteen year old. Times got tough and I dropped out of high school at the age of 16 to help my mother pay bills and put food on the table. I worked at a fast-food restaurant and the money was absolute shit even on top of the cash my mom was bringing in. I never was a religious man, but I prayed.
Not only are activities being replaced or extended, but sometimes food as well as games. For instance, one afternoon I had eaten homemade pizza for lunch and a plate of animal crackers. However, a week later, we had to eat store bought chicken nuggets without any sauce and only a handful of animal crackers as consequences for lack of money. This went on for about a week and a half. Child care workers then had to redo their whole schedule and budget to make up for the lose.
