for some reason this year, mia didn't compute that going to kindergarten meant eating lunch at home.
she also obviously was painfully unaware of her mean mother's strict "eat school lunch" policy. which was passed down to her from her mother (we also had the "old school" option to come home, since school was 2 blocks away.) and faithfully followed as well as strictly-adhered to in this home.
but that didn't stop her from needing, nay REQUIRING a lunch box.
so, when i found this cutest retro box at old navy, i gave in:
it brought such sheer joy, that i knew we'd hit the jackpot.
the other jackpot i hit? finding my OWN LUNCHBOX:
if you know my husband, than you know that this couldn't have been more custom-made for me.
i love it.
