As moms, we go into summer with the best of intentions.
If you're anything like me, in the next few weeks you'll make all of these amazing plans for what you're going to do with those long summer days. You prep fun at-home activities, schedule exciting outings, and even plan picture-perfect lunches for your kids.
And if you're anything like me, those plans usually last a week or two before the chaos ensues.
So I don't know about you guys, but for me, it's key to be a little more realistic about those fun summer plans. I still like to put together exciting and enriching things for us to do/eat/see, but I also try to make sure I'm planning things that are fun but not over-complicated (i.e. things I'll actually do rather than just plan).
And that definitely applies in the lunch department too. No, I'm not going to make perfectly themed lunches every single day... let's be real: it's just not going to happen. Instead, I like to think up fun ideas that are nutritious and easy to prep with two stir-crazy kids in the house! Bonus points if I can think of a way to get those stir-crazy kids to help me make lunch.
