A group shot of all the boys on the first day of school!

The Pirate Kid started his first day of Kindergarten yesterday. Insert tears here. As you can see from the picture, I totally have everything under control. Totally….

He came home today and said “Mom, I guess I only like your food. I mean, I like food. But only yours. Not the school’s.” 


So this means I have to NOT ONLY adjust to waking up early (oh the life of a night owl/musician), not only do I have to adjust to getting 3 kids in real clothes by 8 am (what’s wrong with jammies all day?!) now I have to make a lunch for him. And he’s deathly allergic to peanut butter and other things, so it won’t be an easy task. I really want to focus on fun, filling, and most of all HEALTHY foods for him. And you know I want his lunch to be the envy of every little kid. Yeah, I’m that kinda mom.

Oh well. It will be fun. I use my friend Roni’s recent Back-to-School idea post she did for The Laughing cow as inspiration.

What cool ideas do any of you have for school lunch?

Note To Self: Just because you are depressed with a few things in your life, shut up, stop crying, and stop eating to numb yourself. Really? You think a Suzy-Q will make everything better? You could be a lot worse off right now. Shut your mouth and start being grateful for what you do have.

Sorry for not posting. But I’ve been busy kicking asses and taking numbers. Primarily my own ass, and specifically the number 24.2, as in the AMOUNT OF WEIGHT I’VE LOST SINCE STARTING THIS BLOG IN JUNE!!! 

I will be posting some recipes and fun baby/kiddo pics soon. 
Hurry back!
