school lunches at our home:NOT part dos

just one more example of how i fail as a mother. i'm pretty sure that my kids would sell a kidney in order to replace me with a mother that would make this for lunch:


or how 'bout these:

Shoot, my kids should be thankful that they even get a sack lunch when they ask for one! Those masterpieces would take me forever and use up all of my patience for the day. I'm sure they are content to have a happy, not-so-creative mom, over amazingly creative lunches like those. I think.

Call me a name if you like- I do not do home lunches at all- it's enough to do all there hair in the morning for 2 hours, come on- hair or health- priority ladies!!!!!

I think I spelled that wrong- but too lazy to find out.

None of those look even remotely appetizing.

Christie said...

I'm with Tib - they don't even look good to me.

Misty said...

Seriously, who has time to do that?

Show me a mom who does lunches like that....and I'll show you a mom who has entirely too much time on her hands....or a chef...

I may try the monster face sandwich though...that looks fun...and not very time consuming..plus they're the only ones that a child would actually eat...raw fish?...seriously?

Pedaling said...

Who the he!! is this person?

Those damn Japanese have too much time on their hands and they have to make raw fish look good. Maybe they are just trying to trick their kids into eating it. I do pack lunches..but not mom going to the spa lunches. Jacks would freak out to open it and see a mom with a mud mask. Cucumbers in a kids lunch? We like Gushers... I think they are just as healthy- they ARE fruit chews.

Gosh, moms are SO lazy today. Clearly, if you don't make a self-portrait of yourself you don't love your kids.

Tanja said...

As cute as they are, I don't think many kids would eat them...I think these people have too much time on their hands.

MiaKatia said...

Those are cute but I don't think I would eat anything in them...

Petunia said...

Shoot, I don't do it either.

In fact, I can one-up you on that one: My husband makes her lunch every day. (I am totally not kidding.)

Vanessa said...

I would send the mean face sandwich with my kids. Especially if they were ticking me off while getting ready in the morning.

Suka and Brittany said...

it amazes me that there are people out there who spend their lives doing that stuff! it's great, i just can't imagine. then again, i'm sitting here blogging...

Ida said...

They look scary! Poor sad sandwich!

Omgirl said...

My mom was the LAMEST lunch maker EVER, if she even made us lunch. On those rare occasions, it would consist of a frozen peanut butter and honey sandwich that we got out of the freezer ourselves and put in to a brown paper bag with an apple that would invariably smash our sandwich and get thrown away anyhow. So I think I will try to follow the Japanese model when my kids get older. I think I could manage that last sandwich one at least.

Mother Goose said...

Ok, it might be one thing if my kids would even eat some of those things.
I could try to be a little more creative in how I CUT A sandwich. Like I could do the angry monster sandwich but then the kids would tell all their friends, "Hey, look it's mom"! and that IS what I would look like after trying to make a lunch like that.
They are good if they get a sandwich, drink and snack. Bought lunches are much better for me, until I HAVE to EAT them myself.
