This is the fifth year the Things are heading to summer camp. For the first couple of years, I made their lunches every day. The third year I told my husband he had to make lunch one day a week. Then the next year I told him he had to do it for a full week in addition to the one day.
This year, I’ve had it. I can’t do it anymore. Day after day after day of lunches (they buy lunch during the school year unless it’s something they don’t like – we go over the menu the beginning of every month). The thought makes my stomach curl.
So I did the daring – and told Husband that HE is in charge of lunches this year. I’d take one day or do a full week or whatever, but the every day is for him.
This is now a challenge for me. I like to make sure the boys have protein, calcium, and a fruit or veggie. I’m sure Husband will pull from the four food groups of bread, chips, cookies, and deli meat. And I will try very hard not to complain or suggest he make it healthier. Though I might go in behind him and change some things. 🙂 You won’t tell, will you?
