Remember when the kids were little and you could send them cute little notes in their lunch bags? Well, now I have a boy in middle school. Which means . . .
But it’s hard for a mom not to reach out to her son on the first day (or subsequent days). So, since I’ve recently heard that the way to survive junior high is to use humor, I decided to peruse my Pinterest ‘Because it Makes Me Laugh’ Board.
For instance, he might see something like this in his lunch:
Let’s eat grandpa.
Let’s eat, grandpa.
*correct punctuation can save a person’s life.
So instead of hearts, he might get a hilarious picture which he can choose to share with his lunchmates for a good laugh. On the back, I might also occasionally put on some jokes from Reader’s Digest or Boy’s Life.
But I solemnly swear I won’t sign it “Love, Mom.”
Even though I really, really want to.
But I’m pretty sure he knows.
What do you put in your child’s lunch?
