TNNA Part 3 and Chief packs a lunch

So, what happens when a Mom goes off for a business weekend, and Dad stays home to watch a 5 year old? Dad takes said 5 year old and the 7 year old sister to the office. The Dad instructs the 5 year old and the 7 year old to "pack a lunch". Are you seeing a problem yet? Notice I said that Dad instructs the 5 year old to pack his own lunch.... Chief packed 4 items. Apparently Dad did not check Chief's work. Can you guess what a 5 year old would pack in his lunch if left unsupervised to pack his own lunch? guess! All you moms out there can probably guess.... say it with me... "Cheetos, Cookies, a fruit cup, and marshmallows". Oh well, at least the Mom wasn't home to manage the sugar buzz that inevitably ensued!
Guess who I ran into in Robyn Chachula's 'Beyond the Afghan' class? Why it's MARLY from the Yarn Thing podcast and Jill Wright, from woolcrafting.com! Jill also has a design in the summer issue of Interweave Crochet. You'll be seeing Marly Bird's name in upcoming issues of Interweave Crochet and KnitSimple.

AH-HA! 5-year-old learned lunch packing tips from Mom. If left to her own devices, what would SHE have in her bag? Everyone say it with me.... chocolate cake! I will honor Rule Number 19 (What happens in Columbus stays in COlumbus) but I marvel at the level of bonding that's possible over a shared piece of chocolate cake.

If I were left unsupervised to pack MY lunch, the only thing I would add that Chief's list is chocolate cake. :)

Bet that little absence made your husband grow fonder for your parenting skills.

PS. I had chocolate cake for breakfast today. It was our secretary's birthday so I picked up a cake. At least I had some grapes too.

Chocolate cake for breakfast is awesome! It's probably more healthy than a donut!
