First day of Kindergarten!

No... I did not cry. It was an all smiles morning!

Because of my super late post last night, I skipped my 5am workout in lieu of depositing towards my sleep debt. I set an alarm at 6:00 am. Miss C woke me up at 5:58 am. I asked her to go to her bedroom and change clothes. She came back to my room at 5:59 am. No lie. This girl usually takes 10 minutes to put on socks! Excited is an understatement. At 6:45 am, while I was still fighting with the camera settings since I have no natural light that early in the morning, putting lunch box inside her bag, she kept telling me to hurry because she might miss the bus (which was scheduled to arrive between 7:15/7:30). At 7:25, she stepped on that bus, sat down and waved at me through tinted windows. Despite the lump in my throat, I waved back. My baby is in Kindergarten. Seriously?

1st lunch of 2012-2013 school year!
Miss C requested ham and cheese sandwich rollups, 
carrots with ranch, blueberries, and a couple gummi worms.
Packed in her new Goodbyn bento box 
decorated w/stickers that came with it.

Coincidentally, ham/cheese rollups and goldfish crackers were her first lunch last year. 


  1. So cute! The first day of school is always exciting! I love the new look :)

  2. Cute cute!!! :) I can't believe you didn't cry :P I cry every year after Kidlet gets on the bus and he's going in to 6th grade lol. I can never believe how old he is getting!

  3. Wait til they get on a bus to go to bootcamp. LOL

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
