I’ve been such a blog slacker lately….I have all sorts of things in my head, but it’s much easier to read blogs and play with applications on Facebook (just pointing and clicking) than actually typing with two hands and compiling semi-coherent thoughts….
For the moment, however, all is peaceful and I am going to take a moment to….gush about a lunch box.
About a month ago, a friend sent me a link to LaptopLunches.com, citing how fabulous they were, and how Montessori they were, and she knew I would dig them. I did dig them, but then looked at the price and dismissed them. After all, I’m a tiny container queen, why would I need a box for all of them?? (ha! the entire cabinet dedicated to them isn’t reason enough??)
A few days later, we were at a get together, and she showed me the aforementioned lunch box. OMG. I was in love. And I also had the discount code to ReusableBags.com to get a good deal on one. So good a deal that I bought two. Cause I’m crazy like that.
From the get go, MAM has LOVED this lunch box. She eats more food than if she’s just eating off a regular plate. Maybe it’s the colors, maybe it’s the compartments, I don’t know. But she loves it. The silverware is just her size, the water bottle is just her size, and the carrying case with the shoulder strap? Not only is it her size, she puts it on and says, “I’m like daddy, I’m going to work.” (Daddy is a huge fan of messenger style laptop bags)
Ever since getting our laptop lunch box, it seems to be popping up everywhere, including Parents magazine. There’s even a Flickr group. And here’s the thing–I’m having so much fun packing lunch, I might actually start using my Flickr account and join in the fun! I figure I can provide photographic inspiration for the food allergy set. You know, cause we always pack a lunch (or at least snacks. and snackies of all sorts fit in the lunch box). She starts school Monday–surely I’ll learn how to go mobile on Flickr by then…..
