Every time I made up my mind, I changed it again. I couldn't tell if he didn't like the lunchbox or the food inside. He insisted he liked the lunchbox and the food but wanted a "normal" lunch. Well what the heck does that mean?
Then, the makers of the laptop lunchbox read my post and offered me a free buddy set (which has the wonderful large container I had packed the day the lunchbox vanished) and a discount on the rest of my purchase (How awesome are they?!!). After long discussions with my son, WE decided to go ahead and buy a new lunchbox but we agreed he would get more 'normal' lunches in them.
His idea of normal lunches meant "not decorated". I didn't like it, but I faked a June cleaver-ish smile and agreed on it.
Well, dag on.... you know what the first thing out of his mouth was when we opened the new set??
"Can you make ME a santa hat like you did for my sister?"
hee hee... I think we are back in business!
his new lunchbox!
