Well it took me two years, but I've finally tackled lunches. Yes, thank you. Applauding is extremely welcome. Throughout Kinder and 1st grade the lunch scenario looked one of two ways: I would either stumble into the kitchen at 6:30 am completely groggy to make my morning coffee and lunches OR I would be in a mad rush to shove something healthy-ish into my littles' lunch boxes before we rushed out the door. Either way I was pretty much a hot mess.
This year, I decided to make lunches for the entire week on Sundays. I keep them packaged up in a bin in the fridge so everything stays fresh...
Bam! 10 minutes and 6-8 lunches depending on the week's schedule. That my friends is epic progress for this lunch lady/mommy. (If you have any suggestions for packaging that will keep my sandwiches fresh for days, I'd greatly appreciate your advice. We are currently saving the plastic baggies and washing them for reuse.)
How do you manage daily lunches? xo
