What Came Home?

OK, confession time, I haven’t made the 8-year-old lunch in weeks, no, months! Between my travel schedule and the holidays, we just got out of the habit toward the end of the year. He, of course, loves to buy and I want (need) to start trusting him to make his own decisions.

To be honest, I haven’t thought about it for some time until he asked to bring lunch today.

I said,  ”of course,” of course!  And he pulled together a pretty balanced lunch in my opinion!

    Just the other day I was thinking about your lunchbox series & how I missed them. Currently DS is in daycare/preschool & they have a micro so leftovers can be reheated, but in Sept he’ll be starting kindergarten & my mind is swimming trying to think of lunches he’ll eat.

    The problem i have is my 2.5 year old is in daycare and he eats more than this?! how is that possible! and hes def not on the heavy side either!

      Why is that a problem? Just pack more! I’ve learned what my kids eat and don’t. This is about all I’ll get in him before he starts to through things out.
