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!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    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.

      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.

    We too use the laptop lunchbox but haven't found a case that we like for it. the one you are using seems roomy enough for your water bottle, is it just the laptop lunchbox brand case or something else?
