Let's talk about Lunch!
Because, let's face it. It's all about lunch right now. For better or worse, it's what I've chosen to neurotically pour myself into as a way of getting through this big change.
Well, first off, yesterday went great! He warmed right up to his teacher (by, ahem, showing her his lunchbox!) and she reported that he did great after I left. He followed along with the routines and rolled with the punches. He came home exhausted (it's a 5 hour school day!) and famished (I didn't pack enough lunch!?!?). I am more and more convinced that this is the right place for him and he will get so much from this program.
We are still borrowing a friend's lunchbox, but the one I ordered is pretty similar (if not exactly the same...). It's sleek and cool, but overall, adorable. Today's lunch is: peeled clementine, 3(!) pickles, slices of kielbasa (we have a great Polish deli near us that makes great kielbasa. Andrew calls it "Spicy Circles") and a little container of craisans. I made him two sandwiches with cream cheese and grape jelly that I cut into little circles (remember...going for cute here). And to drink: water. Poor kid.
Yesterday I included a little note...but I didn't today. I'm thinking I'll just put in little notes every now and then.
So, that's the scoop on lunch. Awesome, right? ;)
Today, as I was dropping off Andrew, one of the teachers in his class saw me and said, "Are you Andrew's mom?" "Yes!" "I loved his little lunch thing!" I laughed and said, "Thanks! Me too!"
