We survived our first week of school! Woot woot!! It’s funny, after Day 1, I was like. . “oh I sooo got this.” and then, of course, on Day 3 I crashed and burned. As a mother who stays at home, but also works from home, it’s sometimes hard to balance it all. I mess up all the time and am truly grateful that each day is a new day.
Now that the kids are back in school and gone for most of the day, it’s been amazing what I’ve been able to accomplish at home. And I try to continue this good pace when they get home. I always ask a lot of questions when they get home and we do this “tell me 3 things you learned today” or “3 things that made you happy today” . . and sometimes I feel it’s like pulling teeth to get my 7 year old to say stuff. . especially when I specifically ask about what she learned. Is anyone else’s kid like this?
I’ve already done a few back to school lunch posts and I’m simply posting this one today to tell you guys about RockTheLunchBox.com and give ONE of you the opportunity to WIN this fabulous prize pack from Annie’s.com and RockTheLunchbox.com. I think every parent out there struggles sometimes about what to pack for their children’s lunch (I certainly do!) and Rock the Lunchbox has some great ideas!
I love this laptop lunchbox. My kids love keeping foods separate while they are eating so we love these laptop lunch containers with individual durable plastic containers for everything! There’s even a tiny one for my daughter’s salad dressing. Gotta love that.
Annie’s asked us to have our kids draw their dream lunch . . . I knew Phoebe’s would include pizza.
Over the summer, we made lots of homemade pizza and she loves whole wheat dough so now I have introduced her to whole wheat tortillas! She loves these and they are super easy to make for lunch. All I do is add some turkey meat or chicken breast and roll them up! I also add raw veggies and fruit.
And now when I have to pack a sandwich, I don’t have to use plastic ziploc bags anymore! I love these reuseable storage bags! Aren’t these great! See the giveaway information below to see how you can win the lunchbox, reuseable storage bags, and coupons for FREE products from Annie’s, Organic Valley, Honest Kids, Applegate and Rudi’s!
