Wyatt just sort of didn’t eat on Monday. He had breakfast, then refused to eat any lunch and then when I looked in his lunchbox when he came home it was still filled with the banana, half a mini baguette and grapes I’d packed for him.
It’s Christmas in September! I let Wyatt pick the cookie cutters he wanted me to use for his tofu and he insisted on the candy cane one. I decided to go all the way with it and cut his garlic toast into tree shapes while I was at it. There are some grapes under the trees too.
His snack box had: oyster crackers, dried cranberries, banana and sliced deli turkey.
On Wednesday, I put everything in the laptop lunchbox and told Wyatt he could just eat whatever he wanted at snack and lunch time so there was a lot of stuff in it: banana, a heart-shaped catsup sandwhich, raspberries and strawberries, green beans, ham roll-ups on skewers, dried cranberries and a little bit of chocolate cake in the blue container. I figured he’d eat the cake right off at morning snack, but it came home un-touched. Go figure!
Lunch on Thursday was leftover pasta salad from dinner the night before, a dinner roll, an apple-carrot crusher and some strawberries. I’ve turned around on those crushers. When I first bought them I felt like they were a waste of money, but now that our mornings are so much more hectic I’ve decided the convenience is worth a little extra moolah. I’m still not thrilled about the package waste though, so I try to only pack them on the mornings that I’m truly desperate to get a lunch put together.
Snack is probably looking familiar by now: dried cranberries, half a banana and a half of a mini baguette.
Oh man — I still haven’t gotten my act together with this new kindergarten routine. I was out running errands with the boys this morning and barely got Wyatt home in time to walk to school with the neighbors. In fact, our friends were rounding the corner to our house as I pulled into the driveway. Zach pulled a snack together for him with fruit salad and a catsup sandwich, but he didn’t get a picture of it. I really need to work on being less lame going forward….
