I have a mom confession to make: I dread making lunches. I have been mothering for over 18 years and making exciting lunches that my kids want to eat has always felt like a daunting task. I see Pinterest photos of little bento boxes filled with pandas who have little pillows and blankies made out of delicious food and I don’t feel inspired. Quite frankly, I feel exhausted.
Recently, while reading a story book about a mother who filled her little one’s lunch box with tiny notes, my kindergartener asked the inevitable question:
“Mommy, why don’t you do that?”
Instead of listing a million reasons why, I asked “Would you like it if I did that?”
“Oh, yes, mommy. I really would.”
Well I can do that, I thought. Because, while making Pinterest worthy lunches may not be my thing, creating things out of paper is.
Once again, My Digital Studio came to the rescue. I had some leftover tags printed up from the Hooray For Tags collection. I cut out this one with the adorable little sweet potato, wrote a quick note on the back, and stuck it in her lunch box.
It really was just a small thing, so quick and easy, but she loved it, saving it with her other treasures. Bento pandas may be out of my league, but adorable sweet potatoes are just a few clicks away, thinks to My Digital Studio. This mama really loves that.
