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.
