Mom’s Day Off Blog Hop
Posted May 13, 2012on:
My lovely blogger ladies decided that it would be fun to give dads and/or little ones a chance to pitch in for lunch and give us a hand for a day! What a great idea! So please make sure to push the button at the end of each post to see what everyone’s families did to help mom out for Mother’s Day!
My little Miss G is 4. She ALWAYS wants to help. I do love for her to help me, but most of the time the help she wants to give is in the morning rush to finish breakfast, making lunches & run out to school. This morning I started her early so she could choose all the things for her own lunch. She chose the ice cream cone shaped LunchPunch for her favorite sandwich shape out of the hundreds of cutters that we have. She also said she wanted LOTS of pink since it is her favorite color.
She filled her smaller compartments in her Easy Lunch Box with 2 pink silicone cups , cut her sandwich shapes out of the loaf of Rudi’s Whole Grain organic bread and asked for her favorite standard, Justin’s Almond Butter & raspberry jam. She was surprised that it was tough to spread the almond butter without ripping the bread.
I let her choose which fruits & vegetables she wanted. She chose the picks and put it all together by herself. She said she wanted a lot of pink sprinkles, and I told her she could just for today. She even knew that she needed honey (agave nectar) to make them stick. I had to laugh. I think I’m so special at this, but she has been watching me so intently that the lunch looked an awful lot like something I would have done myself (minus the loads of sprinkles and too much food) and just a tad bit messier than me.
She wanted to choose the background paper herself for the official picture, and insisted that she also take the photo of her lunch too. She included watermelon, honeydew melon, mini carrots and threw in cashews and dried cherries in the green cup at the end. She also chose a Hello Kitty pick and a pink racoon pick to add in the end.
Here is her photo which I only cropped:
And here’s the photo I took of her. I’m not including her beautiful, proud face, but know that she has a HUGE smile from doing this all by her 4 year old self!
