packing lunch

this week nikki has lost three, count them, three lunch boxes.
hmmmmm.
that's why today, instead of packing her lunch in the paper lunch sacks that sit on the shelf in my pantry, 
i packed her lunch in an empty cracker box.
maybe that will motivate her to search the lost and found good and hard today for those three abandoned lunch boxes with her name on them.

Is it the age? Dallin can't keep track of anything, either.

However, I bet your cracker box lunchbox will become the new 'green' trend....everyone will start doing it, too! :)

this is totally worthy of that blog where the mom has such tricky ideas for getting back at her kids when they do dumb things.

So funny! I want to know if she loved it or hated it...I could totally seeing it going either way.

she seemed to think it was funny when i sent her to school, so if my plan was to humiliate her i guess the plan backfired, but she did return from school with some of her lunch boxes, so maybe it was a success?

Genious! I think rather than buying lunch boxes, I'm going with this idea to being with.
