Hello and happy Friday!
Looks like we made it! If you have a school-age child, you know exactly what I mean. The first week of school can be just about as hard on the parents as the kids. Everyone’s adjusting their schedules, managing expectations, and still wondering where summer went to.
Now, instead of taking “me” time with coffee and my News feed in the morning, I’m back to making my teenager’s school lunch before she leaves for school at 7:10 a.m.. Yep. I still make her lunch every day. Why? Oh, I don’t know. She’s certainly responsible enough to do it, but it’s one thing during her day I know she’ll enjoy (she’s a food lover just like her mom) and it makes me feel good knowing she’s eating healthy instead of crap from the vending machines. I’m just waiting for her friends to get their drivers licenses when her take-lunch-to-school plans will likely be seriously curbed.
