So far, when I ask Mikaylah how the school day went, I'm getting one consistent theme...she loves lunchtime. I know that bringing a cold lunch or buying a hot lunch is a new and exciting thing for her, but I guess I didn't really understand how much she would love it.
Today she talked at length about liking the chocolate pudding I included in her cold lunch (why can't they make those easier to open?). Last week it was the apples and caramel dip that was exciting. Other days she has talked about her lunchbox and the themes of other kids' lunchboxes...princess ones, Scooby Doo ones and various others.
I think its cute that she finds lunchtime to be so fun. I hope I can keep her lunches varied enough that she still finds them exciting. For those of you that pack lunches for your kids, what do you pack?? My choices seem limited without refrigeration, as I'm never sure how long an ice pack will really keep things cold...I would love ideas!
