Does anyone else hate packing lunch everyday? Not going to lie, it’s not one of my favorite kid-related chores, although I think the phrase ‘favorite kid-related chores’ is an oxymoron. But here’s the thing. Reese L-O-V-E-S making her lunch. She loves her rainbow lunchbox, loves all the little containers and loves picking out all her favorite snacks. She hates the alternative so much that it’s not even worth broaching the subject with her. I don’t need that kind of stress added to my morning.
So when it comes to lunch packing, I like to keep it simple. I need to be able to throw it in there in about two seconds flat since that’s about all the time I’m usually working with and I don’t want Reese to see it and protest. There’s no time for that. So if there’s one thing that’s a constant in our lunch making routine, especially this time of year, it’s adding a Cutie (don’t act like you don’t get hype when you see them back in stock).
For this mildly lazy and always running late mom, I can’t deny that packing one is easy but since they are like little delicious candies, there are no complaints from the peanut gallery. I get to pat myself on the back for packing fresh fruit, Reese actually eats what I pack her. Win, win.
