So, it hit me today. My heart sank and my brain started to hurt. If you looked closely you might have even seen a little smoke coming out of my ears as those inner wheels started to turn. I panicked! Over what, you might ask? Over something that I’m sure is second nature to a lot of you. But it’s my first time and I’d never even given it so much as a single thought before.
I have to pack a school lunch tomorrow.
Yep, a school lunch has me in a state of panic. Partly because I’m sending my baby off to pre-school and there are so many emotions that come along with that, but also because I’ve never packed a school lunch before. See, I’m not the Betty Crocker kind of Mom. I’m the take-out sushi kind of mom. And if there’s one thing I DO know it’s that Spicy Tuna Rolls are NOT gonna last in a lunch box until noon.
HELP! What the heck do I send in this kid’s lunch???? She’s not too picky and she’s not afraid of healthy foods, but I also want her lunch to be fun. Well, as fun as it can be when it doesn’t contain a spicy tuna roll and some yellow tail sashimi.
Post your ideas in the comments section here on the blog. I’ll let "the kid" pick her favorite and the winner will receive a $20 iTunes gift card.
Deadline is 6:00pm Wednesday. I have to go to one of those grocery store thingies before bedtime, ya know.
Have a terrific day, everyone!
