  • Mom2Drew
    My incredibly sweet friend Jenny writes about life with her little boy (who is also incredibly sweet and very cute!). A totally different perspective than those of us with girls, although she does have a baby girl on the way! I always find her posts encouraging. I know you will too.

    For those of you who have ever lost a child, or know someone who has, this blog is incredible.

From mourning to dancing, this blog will completely bless you.

Just hit costco and got our first "snack food" for our 1st time at school. I have to say I am stressed about lunches too. I also have to pack him a snack. How many sandwiches can a kid eat. I like to do pickle roll ups. Basically lunch meat wrapped around a pickle. he loves them. Cream cheese on these would be good for your girls but we use mayo. Soy beans for when were out of protein, egg salad on crackers/bread, salami or peanut butter sandwiches, left overs( you know they hate that).... I'm not so good a this.

Fabulous ideas! And I love your rolling cart - I may have to re-purpose my laundry cart now! I hate packing lunches too, but Chris never volunteers... ;) I actually drew up a small grid on a sheet of paper, named a few categories (sandwich, fruit/veggie, something crunchy, a drink, and an "extra" category for snacks and things. I let Parker tell me what healthy foods he wanted to eat to fill those spaces (with my guidance, of course) and now he feels like he chooses his own lunch every day. He's a very picky eater, so it helps him take responsibility for what's in his box and he's more apt to eat what he's "chosen". I also shamefully admit to cutting all the crusts off and using cookie cutters on his sandwiches because it works for him. lol!
