This week was a bit strange for us, so I did my best to keep Wyatt’s lunches simple. Tuesday was his first day back at preschool after a two week break and it was also the day our new baby was due. Not knowing exactly when I would go into labor, I tried to make Wyatt’s lunch in advance each night so his aunt and uncle wouldn’t have to worry about it if they got a call to come over in the middle of the night.
Since Tuesday was Wyatt’s first day back at preschool after his time off, so I decided to keep his lunch pretty simple and full of his favorites. There were blueberries, of course, chicken-apple-gouda sausage with catsup for dipping and half of a hamburger bun.
Wednesday, Wyatt really, really wanted me to send broccoli in his thermous so he could run fast and jump high at preschool. He had actually asked for it on Tuesday too, but we were out! Needless to say, when your 3-year-old is begging you to put broccoli in his lunch, you make a trip to the store to get some. The rest of the lunch consisted of: farmer’s market strawberries and raspberries, low-fat salami and saltines. I put the berries and salami together the night before, then added the saltines and heated the broccoli up in the morning. By the way, he only ate about half the broccoli. I still count that as a success.
Thursday I basically sent the same lunch as the one Wyatt took to school on Tuesday. More blueberries (frozen when I put them in the box) with a strawberry for color, chicken-apple-gouda sausage and a hot dog bun.
Friday’s lunch was also a repeat: Strawberries and blueberries, pretzel thins and salami.
No baby yet! But he should be here by the end of next week.
