While packing her lunch this morning, my middle-schooler, sighed in disgust and packed yet another lunch in a gallon size freezer zip lock baggie. She did not have to say a word. We are now in the third week of school and still….no brown bags for packing a lunch.
I don’t think this would have happened in previous years. But, with a self sufficient senior, and a 9th grader who will only eat the school lunch, I am left with one lunch packer. And, it just hasn’t made the written grocery list yet.
Yes, I have been to the grocery store many times in the last few weeks, but, out of site=out of mind.
Until today. When opening my email at work I saw this email from my daughter…

And she hasn’t even complained about carrying her lunch in a see through zip lock baggie. I guess it is time to get to the store!
What a great way to encourage me. Fill my inbox with subtle requests.
