Growing up I was very lucky to have a mom that made my lunch every day. Sure there was a time I was embarrassed of my brown bag lunch, but given the food I saw in the hot lunch line, I was mostly very grateful for the food from home. No mystery meat in my brown bag. So, as my kids went off to school I was determined to load their little back packs with homemade treasures as well. And they get sick of the same ol', same ol'. And how many options are there really for variety
I am a morning person. I remember waking as a little kid and playing happily by my self until the sun came up and the rest of the family woke. I do my best work before lunch. We are not all wired the same way. As many authors and researchers have learned how we start our day has a big impact on the rest of the day. Wake up, hit the ground running, barely have time for 2 sips of coffee and a pair of mis-matched shoes and we are off to a day filled with emergencies and crisis.
