I put my hand up on your [carrot] chip…

…WHEN I DIP YOU DIP WE DIP!!!

I packed a dippy lunch for my Bigs, can you tell? Or did you just think I was just singing you songs from the 90’s? Because that IS a possibility.

I missed my weekly grocery shopping trip, so unfortunately, super festive sandwiches are hard to come by (when you are out of bread, amirite?). So Bigs got Da Dip.

I packed carrots and ranch dressing, pretzels, melba toasts and peanut butter, raisins, dried cranberries, a mandarin orange, a squeezy yogurt, and a mini butterfinger.

Word to ya mutha.

The Great Turkey Countdown

I’m going to be straight with you. I made another turkey lunch. And I’ll be doing the same tomorrow. And then that’s it. On Friday, Bigs’ class will be having a sweet, little Thanksgiving feast, and THAT’S the only reason I won’t be making a turkey lunch.

Gobble Gobble.

I made a PB&J turkey-shaped lunch, and added some details to the face, feet, and feathers. He’s sort of rasta looking this time. I dig it. He’s sitting upon a crusty hay bale and although it looks like he’s pooping out a Reece’s PB cup, he isn’t. Or maybe he is. My Bigs would think that’s hilarious. I also packed seasoned corn, fruit salad (red and green grapes, and pineapple), and a squeezy organic yogurt.

Here’s to a day where poop is replaced by Reece’s PB cups.

The Three Little Lunches

Tomorrow is my Co-op day. I love those days where I get to be a Helper Parent in my Bigs’ class. It’s so fun. I love seeing him do his VPK thing, I love spending extra time with him, and I love sitting on the teeny chairs next to him and his friends while eating lunch.

Here is what I packed Bigs:

I made a vanilla bean cream cheese and apple cranberry butter (from Trader Joe’s) sandwich. I also packed some dried cranberries, a few banana chips, some freeze dried apples, assorted raisins, seasoned corn, a few mini sausage links, a few pretzels, a banana, and a couple of teeny chocolate pieces.

For me:

I made the same sandwich for me as I did for Bigs. That cranberry apple butter is to die for. I also packed the same dried fruit, and added a Gala apple (my favorite).

And for my Smalls, who has Mom’s Morning Out:

He has a PB&J, pretzels, banana chips, dried cranberries, assorted raisins, and three itty bitty chocolate pieces.

Hope you have a great night! I better rest up! Spending the day with a boatload of 4 and 5 year olds kicks my bum bum! Hats off to teachers!

Blessings,

Kristin
