Fast Food Lunches


So here's the thing:  Remember my "Happy Happy Lunch Box" blog hop post, where I showed off our Planet Box lunch boxes and all the ideas I used to make lunch easy for the girls?  Yeah.  Little Sis doesn't eat her lunches.  Oh, she maybe eats her pickle, an olive or two, a bit of blue cheese.  The sandwiches?  Pasta salad?  The main bulk of her lunch?  Yeah, she hardly touches a thing.  She claims she never has enough time.  I've eaten lunch with her.  No, they don't have much time, but if I sit there and tell her, "Now eat some of that" and "Now try that," she gets it done, no problem.  We have told, we'll start buying her hot lunches from now on, but then she whines, "Eww, they look disgusting!"

So Daddy decided to send them to school with McDonald's for their lunches.  He marked them with the girls' initials, so he could remember which one gets McNuggets and which one gets a cheeseburger.  There was much excitement this morning.  Lots of, "Oh, thank you, Daddy!"  Because when your kiddos aren't eating their healthy, handmade lunches, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do to get them to eat!

Note:  Daddy made their lunches.  The little one is so picky, I don't even pack chips or crackers.  Maybe she'll recognize the treat... 

Unfortunately, Big Sis remembered the date before she left for school.  She lets her Little Sister in on it, too. The last thing Little Sis said as she headed out the door?  "I'll bet it's just an April Fool's joke, but I really hope it's not..."

Unlike last year, when Big Sis totally fell for my April Fool's Day prank.

  1. You evil evil parents! Muahahaha!!! This is just too funny. Poor kids... they will be so disappointed at lunchtime! My kid eats school's lunch. Even if it's not the whole lunch, at least he eats most of it whereas he would not even touch sandwiches or whatever else I pack for him. I was going to play a prank on him and pretend I was pregnant with another girl... but my hubby was against it so we didn't figure out what to do for April's fool yet.

    1. Well, the oldest had it figured out, and just rolled her eyes at me when I picked her up from school. The youngest has a "you-owe-me-one" attitude. She didn't eat much of her lunch, once again. I really might switch to hot lunch for her. I think I make yummy, lovely, healthy lunches, but if she won't eat them...

      Ha, that would have been mean! ;)

    1. What can I say? We're mean. We have decided that since they were on to us this year, we'll have to come up with something awesome - AND unrelated to lunch! - for next year. :)

    1. Ha! My kids didn't even fall for it... Well, not really. Little Sis still held out a little hope. They have been very stubborn about eating what they're given lately, especially the youngest. She finds fault with everything. Mr. B bought them little sundaes at McDonald's last night, because they ate enough of the delicious homemade stir-fry he made.
