This is what Ethan got in his lunch today: Uncooked rice, cotton balls, sliced olives, cheesecake pudding mix and Legos. I also included a little note telling him to treat himself to a hot lunch and a little p.s. requesting he not use any of the fake lunch items to torment or distract his classmates.
Are you fooling anyone today?
p.s. Lest you think I'm an over-achieving super-mom, I must disclose that I had not the slightest inclination to do anything foolish today. But my neighbor asked me if I was doing anything, then sent me this link. That got the wheels spinning. Then when I woke up from a distressing dream at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep, I formulated the rest of the plan.
And it took less time to assemble this lunch than it would have to make an edible one.
