This is her lunch. AFTER she ate it.
Pictured: The remnants of L's lunch. When I unpacked her backpack yesterday. What isn't quite so visible? The 7.5 ounces of Capri Sun Fruit Punch that the sandwich/entire lunch bag is soaked in, as L so thriftily tried to save her juice.
I believe she took 1-2.5 bites of sandwich. At approximately 10:50 a.m., because kindergarten gets HOSED on the lunch schedule. Which probably explains why she consumed exactly 18 calories? She had yet to digest breakfast. And also, I'm not sure she knows how to eat without someone (me) CONSTANTLY saying, "L, take a bite. Take a bite. Chew. Bite. Chew. Chew. Swallow. Have a drink. A drink. Chew. Drink. Bite."
And so on and so forth.
She is probably going to be toddler-sized for the rest of her life, unless I decide to play personal assistant to her mouth next year in first grade.
Big J and L are in a half-day kindergarten class that goes home before lunch, BUT on party days (such as Valentine's Day), they get to stay full-day and have their party in the afternoon, like the rest of the school. I LOVE this so much, I can't even tell you. Love, LOVE, love, that I have these random tastes of what life will be like when all my kids are in full-time school next year.
I'm learning that it's going to be a lot of non-eating with some juice box humor thrown in for *fun*.
