Today was one of those rare days when I just had one child. My older two were off doing their own thing, so I let the little guy choose our outing. He opted for a swim date, which was perfect, as no one else wanted to go. Knowing he’d be starving when we got out of the pool, I packed him a little snack.
The Contents – Kiwi and strawberry chunks, cheese-kabobs and a mini banana muffin.
The Details – That little brown speck on the muffin? I didn’t have enough chocolate chips to mix into the batter, so I put one chip on each muffin. My kids savor that one single chip, as the “most special bite.” They sure do crack me up.
The Verdict – After ingesting a Danimal, yogurt tube and granola bar on the way out the door to the pool, I was a little concerned that he wouldn’t eat his snack box. But, he inhaled it…and I loved that he got a good, healthy snack into him before we headed to his lunch of choice….McDonalds. Argh!
