Staying on Track with Lunchables
Last Updated on
Sapphire is, well, Sapphire. If you've followed our blog for any amount of time, you know she has her good days and then of course the other days. On those days, we don't agree on much. She and I can't see eye to eye even if we're staring each other in the face. On those days, I just remember the breathe. On those days, everything is a compromise. Thankfully, some of the compromises aren't bad at all. Take our morning routine, for example…
Sapphire was supposed to pack her lunch last night so it was ready for the morning, but I'm the only Mom here right now because Rachel is visiting her Mom in St. Louis. So, a few things have gone to the wayside (like um, everything).
Now it's morning time and we are rushing around like chickens with our heads cut off. I have to remember everything: check her backpack (or she will sneak slime to school), make her brush her teeth (and supervise, or it won't happen), grab her trumpet (is it Friday yet?!), wear matching shoes (you'd be surprised), oh, and yeah now we have to pack her lunch because she didn't do it last night. We're running out of time here!
Thankfully, even though it feels like everything is a losing battle, what to pack for lunch isn't. Instead of fighting with her over lunch, I let her grab a Lunchables Organic from the fridge (yes, it's important for her to grab it… makes it a “win” in her eyes).
She is super excited, and that sets everything off on the right foot for the rest of the morning. Even though everything feels like a losing battle on some mornings, we both won with lunch because Lunchables Organics are USDA certified organic and free of artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors*.
Lunchables Organics are the perfect product to bring together the fun of Lunchables that your kids love, with the Organic credentials you can feel good about. I feel like there will always be things where Saff and I don't see eye to eye, but Lunchables Organics are something we can both agree on! Having a ready-to-eat lunch combination saves me time and stress, which is extremely important… especially in the morning when nothing else seems to go right.
