Lunch & Love
It's 4:12 AM, do you know where your children's lunches are?
I thought I did.
American Cheese stacked neatly in perfect squares, tucked into it's plastic wrapping, seated alongside the lunchmeat in the drawer.
Soft white bread resting peacefully in the cabinet, each slice leaning against the other in empty carbohydrate camaraderie.
Fruit snacks lounging in the "snack bin," Dora's and Princesses co-mingling with Spongebob and the gang.
Cheesesticks lazing on a layer of fresh whole fruit, snuggled in, just waiting to be selected and packed.
Damn I am one lucky lady.
This man who leaves at 2AM so that he can be available to get Middle Monkey off the bus, took the time, as he does nearly every morning, to prepare lunches that "shoulda, woulda, coulda been prepared and packed the night before by your's truly...He does this. Takes care of things. Little things, big things, everything. Clean the bathrooms, pay the bills, build a fence, cure cancer....you know, the normal stuff.
But they deserve to be commended just the same.
In the world of Mommy Blogging we offer a LOT of support to our fellow mothers but I thought that today, for no particular reason at all, I would take a moment to say thanks to all the hard-working, heavy-lifting, lunch-making Monkey Makers.
You really, really rock.
