Gotta have me some Pinterest every few
Some of the things I see on there make me all swooney and teary and fill me with a false sense of confidence.
Other things leave me scratching my head and muttering "What the...?"
Case in point: school lunches.
There seems to be a new trend in getting all cutesy and creative when packing your kids' lunch for school.
Now, for someone like me that doesn't even make her kids ANY lunch, a PB-and-J would be considered cutesy and creative.
But these lunches are, well they're frightening to me, to be quite honest.
Here are a few examples...
Because first of all, if you have that much time on your hands in the monrings when you're packing your kids off to school, you're doing something wrong. Have you never heard of the snooze button?
Secondly, do you bubble-wrap the Tuppperware and personally deliver lunch to your kid at the cafeteria? Because no way in hell will it look like that once your darling has opened the lid of his Avengers lunchbox after it's been tossed around on the bus and in the coat cubby all morning.
Thirdly, well I have no thirdly. I'm speechless.
Like I said, I don't do lunches for my kids anymore. Haven't for a few years now. They are all perfectly capable of spreading penaut butter on bread and grabbing a fruit cup from the pantry. And they're usually better than I am at finding errant water bottles to fill.
And before you go getting all judgy on me for not nurturing my kids enough, I DO make them breakfast, so there. They get a hot breakfast
and no, it does look like this...
And I get to spend more time on my laptop looking up pictures of lunches created by Moms a little too close to the edge of sanity for my comfort level.
We all win.
