Our weekend was fun, despite the fact that no one bought our house. (Why are all homebuyers in our area being so selfish and slow I wonder?)
Yesterday we took Emerson to the mall. Naturally, we had to pop into the Disney Store because that's where dreams come true. Then we get to a display rack and see a Minnie Mouse lunch bag, and girlfriend went nuts!
"Minnie! Minnie! MINNIE!"
I didn't even know that she understood the difference between Mickey and Minnie, but boy did she! She grabbed that thing right off the rack and held on for dear life. So of course we had to buy it for her. (I wonder how we'll respond some day when she goes "Mercedes!!" "Spring Break in Cabo!" Is that how the kids on Super Sweet 16 get away with it???)
But for the bargain price of $12.50, this little bag made her happy so there we go.
After bedtime, I decided a new lunch bag meant new lunch ideas. I try really hard to come up with creative, healthy foods to pack in her lunch every day, but I feel like I'm in a rut.
Here's what Emerson eats in a typical day:
Breakfast: Whole grain toast with butter, strawberries, milk (oh dear does she love her milk)
Snacks: Bananas, graham crackers, Cheerios, apples
Lunch: Cheese cubes, apple sauce, crackers, kiwi, pinwheels with vegetable cream cheese, green peppers, leftovers from our dinner the night before. Easy stuffed that can be packed for "school" and doesn't necessarily have to be heated up.
Dinner: Whole grain pasta, broccoli/peas/carrots/some kind of vegetable, cottage cheese
What do you feed your little munchkin?? Ideas welcome :)
