How’s this for unimaginative? Yeah. It was Friday, I needed to go to the grocery store and I was out of ideas, really.
Our theme? Of course, Teddy Bear!
I printed out a cute little teddy bear to use as a template for sandwiches or cheese or something, but my unpreparedness won and I ended up just making the kids PB&J with an American cheese teddy face (yeah, that’s a teddy bear face), White Cheddar Cheez-Its, leftover Elvis muffins, carrot sticks and Babybel cheese. This is Jaiden’s lunch and if I’m remembering correctly, the Cheez-Its were actually her afternoon snack, but they fit right inside her lunch box so in they went.
I’m not going to apologize for not sending “cutesy” lunches every single day. Sometimes you either just don’t have it in you or sometimes it just doesn’t work. I will say that I am very much looking forward to getting more cookie cutters and picks! That will happen once I can finally rebound from summer childcare (which is expensive if you have three kids).
