A Light Lunch
Yesterday, my 14 y.o. son had a late start day at school. Collaborative planning for the teachers and all that it entails. He was able to sleep in until 9:30 which, if you have ever had a 14 y.o. is still early for them. With school starting at 10:15 he was in the kitchen packing his lunch when I came down. I asked if he had found the new peanut butter, which he had. I noticed he only had one brown lunch bag today, when he usually has two. "Not hungry today?" I joked. He responded most seriously, "I packed light today, since it is only a half day and I just ate breakfast." "Oh, Okay." I responded. I took a peek inside his lunch bag. The contents of his "light" lunch included. 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches., 2 Gatorade, a bag of chips, and an apple. I really don't want to know what he packs on days when he is hungry.
