Monday is the first day of school for my second grader. He is utterly excited; I am totally stressed out. One of the reasons is lunch. For the past two years, we have had exactly three lunch options in rotation: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (the odds-on favorite), a hot dog, and, on occasion, a Lunchable (I know how some people feel about these, but I just don’t want him to starve at school). Even though he‘s not terribly picky at home and seems to eat constantly, when it comes to the contents of his lunchbox, he has, ahem, a certain discerning taste. And it’s driving me nuts. What is wrong with a good old ham and cheese?
Hit me with your ideas to shake things up a bit, please. Otherwise, I’m going to have to take out stock in Skippy.
