    I wish DD would eat as many things as your son does!!

    Today I sent her with multigrain crackers, cheese, 1/2 pepperoni stick, fresh apricot, snap pea crisps( cleaning out the pantry kind of lunch) and a power bar for breakfast on the bus as she is never hungry before she leaves. Who knows how much she might eat-she is trying to cut back on sugar so we will see how long that lasts.

    He has turned into a really good eater. He usually eats our fancy meals with us is nice. Unlike his sibling!

    Mine has a thermos with taco meat, and a dish with some lettuce, red pepper and cheese. I also packed an Old El Paso 'taco bowl' for him to eat it out of, got them at No Frills a week or two ago on sale. Gonna try making something like that myself some time.

    I wish I were done packing lunches. Both DH and I work full time so DS is in camps for much of the summer. Lunch packing continues. But looking on the bright side, this week and next week lunch is included! Yay!

    This is my 1st summer that I don't have to put DS in daycare/camp! But I do go home at lunch to make him lunch lol.
    He is attending 2 hockey camps this summer so I will have to pack lunches for those but won't be so bad since I don't have to do it everyday.
    One year he attended a golf/hockey camp and lunch was included at the golf course. It was the best camp ever!!
