play with your food

Kids are often told not to play with their food. I say let them play with their food.

  • Keeping it real today with my epic #mumfail of yesterday. Yesterday was not my day (thankfully today is a new one) and we are only human right?
.
After school yesterday my daughter says to me “mummy you forgot my lunch” and I was very confused as I looked in her bag and saw her lunchbox. Turns out I packed her veggies, her fruit and her muffin but forgot her sandwich. Now in 8 years of school lunchboxes and packing 4 lunchboxes a day, this is the first time I have ever done this! My boys all had sandwiches. I felt really bad about it but you know what, she was fine about it (she was just letting me know). Today is a new day....(and I triple checked she has some wraps in there today). Cheers to a new day...
