Hello everybody! School begins next week and my oldest daughter is about to enter Kindergarten. I didn’t enroll her in Pre-K for two main reasons: I wanted her to spend more time with her little sister and form an indestructible bond and I simply wasn’t ready to let her go. The bond has been formed, but alas I’m still finding it really hard to let her go and there’s nothing I can do about it. I can home school her, but I need to give her a chance to be among other children and experience a new environment. I have to at least try.
I am going to miss her greatly, especially during lunchtime. I have been feeding her since the day she was born and as she grew older, her palette grew as well. Some days she’ll ask for pasta with a chicken patty or a whole wheat pizza or her favorite, a funny face. What’s a funny face? Well, it’s a peanut butter and jelly sandwich along with other items that I put together constructing a funny face.
Here are some examples:
PB&J sandwiches, mixed salad, red apples, grapes, bananas, strawberry, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips
PB&J sandwiches, banana, broccoli, apples, pickles, shredded mozzarella cheese, and chocolate chips
PB&J sandwiches, apples, banana, raisins, cherry tomatoes, and chocolate chips
About a few weeks ago, I surprised her with a different sandwich, a happy face butterfly. She loved it!
PB&J sandwich, mozzarella cheese stick, pickle, marshmallows from cereal, and chocolate chips
When she starts school, she does have a choice between eating the school lunch or I can send her off with food in a lunch box, but I don’t believe that the happy faces are going to stay intact in her lunch box. 😦 At least, I’ll have the weekends until she gets too old. I’ll settle for that. 🙂 Until next time…
