Lunches you can actually do. Packing lunches like a boss. A really tired boss.

I am an ungrateful, first-world, part-time working mom who has bitched about packing lunches full of healthy, fresh food for my private-school attending children, none of whom have allergies or other challenges. I’m amazed the hand of God hasn’t come down & smacked me like they promised it would when I went to a Protestant missionary school in junior high. I deserved it.

BUT! Complaining no more! Instead, I’ve figured out that I can snap a pic of these bentos & get myself a little dopamine hit by posting them. And in the process, I’ve realized I’m not that shitty of a mom.

So here’s a little library of our weekday lunches. I can do this. And I can have a better f*cking attitude about it. Enjoy.

And a huge thank you to Mom Boss, Kelly Lester of EasyLunchBoxes, who shared one of my pix today!!! πŸ˜€ I’m so excited because I’ve been using her lunch boxes since Zoe started preschool!!!

    • Thanks, Joanne!!! I’m looking forward to more independence. They are already packing their own snacks, so that’s awesome. πŸ˜€ One day, I know I’ll miss packing them food…*sigh* ❀

  1. Awwww! Thank you for this Alice! I created EasyLunchboxes cuz packing for my 3 was such a CHORE! So happy to see that my little company has made life for another mom of 3 just a little easier πŸ™‚ – Kelly Lester, mom and ceo, EasyLunchboxes

    • Kelly, THANK YOU for your creative spirit & mom-ability!!! I bought my first EasyLunchBox set I think in your first year of production! I remember we emailed back & forth because your manufacturers were on a holiday schedule, & production was delayed, lol! And I remember thinking how great it was that your lids were designed for kids to be able to open themselves, b/c regular Tupperware or other containers were too tight. Our ELB have lasted forever! But of course I had to get a new set just because I love the “grown up” color combo (grey, olive, copper, black). πŸ™‚ Keep up the wonderful work you do. You *have* made the lunch box life much easier!!! ❀
