Behold the Lego cafeteria.
Tables for four.
A place to order lunch,
and a place to pay for lunch.
I love to listen to Aidan playing with his cafeteria. There are gangsters that pick on kids. Teachers that are really aliens in disguise. Food fights and kicking b-u-t-t (one of the few words Aidan can spell on his own). I'm hoping the real cafeteria is a friendlier place, but I have some doubts.
One of the things I dreaded about our return to public school life was packing lunches. I really despise packing lunches, but I have to say the kids' new lunch boxes make the chore much easier and almost enjoyable.
and Aidan picked out the tiffin box.
I purchased them through Angelinhome.com. One of the best investments we have made this school year. No more searching for containers with lids that fit, wondering if the Ziploc baggies will make it home, having to clean the baggies that do survive. No more lunch boxes that stink despite frequent washings.
As for me, I am enjoying hot lunch, everyday around 11:30, picnic style on the family room floor. Grilled cheese with homegrown tomatoes on homemade white bread, a side of polenta and fresh fruit. Yummy. After lunch is free choice time. Perhaps I'll play with Legos.
