School Lunches. It's a Four-Letter Word.
Every morning I dread packing school lunches. Each of the three older boys have different preferences. It's a zoo in the morning before school and I feel like a short-order cook.
I have come up with a few things that have made it easier for me. In my pantry I have 2 crates. One for sweet treats/fruit (above) and the other for salty snacks. Each of the boys gets a sweet treat (cookie, pudding, granola bar) and a fruit (applesauce, diced peaches, mixed fruit) and a salty snack (PB crackers, chips, Doritos, "dipping things"). (Of course they get a sandwich and 100% juice box as well.)
It still isn't a smooth morning. But at least it's somewhat more organized.
And on Fridays. Well, I love Fridays. Fridays are always pizza day at school and the boys buy lunch!
Come on, Friday!
