I’ve given in to the moron lunch monitor and started to put the boy’s lunch in a traditional Thermos instead of a bento box. The upside is the boy doesn’t come home from school and tell me that the lunch lady commented yet again on how hard it is for her to open the bento box. The downside is a Thermos lunch doesn’t really make for very good photo opps. Today’s lunch: macaroni and cheese with super-simple bechamel sauce.
Last night the boy rattled off a laundry list of toys he wants from Santa this year. Most of the items were weapons or Star Wars-related. I told the boy that Santa doesn’t give guns for Christmas. The boy asked if busy daddy and I have the same rule. The answer is yes. I guess I should start my Christmas shopping soon?
