Home Lunch

Emilie is out tonight so you'll have to settle for a guest post. It's been a while since I've guest posted, so this should be fun.

The older two kids have been on this home lunch kick lately. They are waking up early so they can make their lunches and do all the rest of their morning jobs before school. Here's the conversation I had with them about home lunch and school lunch:

Me: Why do you want home lunch so bad?
Them: Because school lunch is nasty.
Me: Why is it nasty?
Them: Because of Michelle Obama.
Me: Michelle Obama?
Them: Yeah, she wants school lunch to be healthy so now we only have healthy stuff to choose from. They tell us we have to have enough fruits and vegetables.
Me: Do you have dessert?
Them: Dessert?
Me: Yeah, something sweet.
Them: Sometimes we have fortune cookies, and this blueberry stuff.
Me: So let me get this straight, you don't like school lunch because they tell you what you have to eat and it's all healthy?
Them: Yeah, it's all Michelle Obama's fault.

They usually end up making peanut butter sandwiches with some other things thrown in to round it out.

I think it's interesting that they are completely irritated because the government (Michelle Obama) is trying to choose what they eat for lunch. I guess we'd better make sure we have enough peanut butter...

That is funny! Even kids feel like the government is taking over :)

Hahaha! We have the EXACT same conversation at our house. I had to agree with them when they were served hamburgers without buns, though. I think we'll stick to PBJ, too. :)
