For us school begins in 11 days.
Therefore there are a lot of emotions
and activities rolling through our house...
Excitement, fear, stress,organizing,
shopping for supplies
(choosing that one special notebook
can be stressful),
shopping for clothes
(that are within dress code)
Of course, there is the lack of activities -
my kids think it will help to be lazy now -
storing up their energy!
the most stressful shopping choice
is the treasured
Do we brown bag it?
Do we show off our favorite cartoon character?
Do we go with our favorite color?
What will look cool!
What will my friends have?
Oh the decisions!
(Buying lunch at school is not an option!
Too expensive, too much grease,
too long of a line to finally get food
and not enough time to eat
and digest the grease.)
After finding the greatest box ever!
The one that will make all my friends jealous,
the one that will accentuate my cuteness!
within the first month.
It will be lay forgotten on the playground
never to be seen again,
tears will flow over the
and we will rely on the ole' brown bag!
Special stickers will dress this ole' bag up
and tears will be dried up!
Why do I buy into the marketing of
the lunch box?
Happy school shopping to y'all!
