Isn’t that a saying? It should be. It should be saying between us parents. You know like a bonus birthday or something! Remember that Staples commercial where the dad rode the shopping cart through the aisles? I love that commercial. They should make Happy Back to School cards that parents could send to each other … why, not?! There is a card for every other holiday and this my friends is a holiday!
I admit I love the schedule that school gives our family. This year we are sending all three off to school … a 3rd grader, a 1st grader, and a Kindergartner! Look at how happy and excited they are … they really were.
Sadly it was short lived and I got a call 15 minutes into the school day to come get Grace. Hopefully, this is a 24 hour illness and she makes it school tomorrow. Who knew third grade was so rough?! Hopefully the essential oils help her feel better too!
That being said we are trying a new lunch packing routine this year. Remember my lunch planning menu? Yeah, I printed those out and we filled out this week’s on Sunday.
It ended the lunch packing guessing game I would play when I packed lunches. I ended up with this …
Have you discovered Lunchbox Love yet? If you haven’t found these cute notes yet, you should find some! The kids are asking for them now in their lunches. I need to buy more with three of them wanting notes!
Brian normally shops on Fridays so I will have to see if my week of lunches meal plan holds up not with his shopping schedule or if we adjust that.
Are your kids back in school? How are you surviving? Leave me a comment and let me know!
