Over the years I've received a lot of blog comments along the line of:
"I don't know how you do it!", "Your kids are so lucky to get such great lunches every day!", "I wish I had your creativity!"
I always chuckle when I read these.
Because the truth is this...
I don't always do it. Sometimes Ethan packs his own lunch. And sometimes he and Paige buy the school lunch. (By the time this post pops up I will be out of state and in my absence Ethan is packing lunches for himself and Paige!)
My kids do not get great lunches every day. Many days their lunches are totally ho-hum, plain, no frills, no cute, nothing special at all. I just don't usually take pictures of those lunches. No pictures = no blog post. Those boring lunches definitely happen, they just don't often get documented.
There are so many days I am not feeling creative at all! I don't make lunches the night before and I am not a morning person. It's all I can do some days to not cry when I walk into the kitchen to make breakfast and lunches in the morning. I am so not a supermom!
So in the spirit of just keeping it real, here's one of Paige's totally pathetic lunches this week:
Packed in an EasyLunchboxes container:
- leftover pizza
- cucumber chunks
That didn't look like enough food, so I also included a container of strawberry yogurt.
I barely remembered to include a spoon.
Oh yeah, baby!
