I'm a total procrastinator. I work on it everyday, I really do. I learned quickly though, being even a little bit disorganized and being a mom are like a natural disaster waiting to happen. So I've been working on anticipating needs and being prepared.
We decided this evening to go see Mick Mouse tomorrow.
Packing toddler food for a day trip such as this is no joke. For me, it involves preparing and packing 3 meals and at least 3 snacks, because let's be honest, at least one of those snacks is going to get thrown on the ground at Downton Disney.
(I freaking love T.V. and can't wait for all three of those shows to be back.)
Anyway, this may not seem like a big deal to non-parents, or even to veteran parents, but I'm pretty proud of myself for having this together early to prevent those stressful minutes before leaving the house with a young toddler.
What's on O's "To Go" menu*:
Breakfast On The Go: Whole Wheat Granola Waffle, 1/2 Banana + Blueberries + Milk
Morning Snack: Peach-Apricot Sauce (in the green Beaba pouch) + Orange slices
Lunch: Elephant-shaped Cheese Sandwiches + Edamame + Raisins
Afternoon Snack: Freeze dried Pear Slices + Goldfish (IF I'm not feeling neurotic about having orange crumbs everrrrrrrywhere)
Dinner: Turkey + Ham Roll-ups + Steamed Carrots & Greenbeans + Organic Superfruit Snacks + Milk
Dessert: Greek Yogurt
We share a lot of this stuff (i.e. the yogurt, orange, ect.) to prevent waste, and according to Dr. Greene, it encourages lifelong healthy eating if your child sees you eating the same (healthy) food as them. I grin and bare it only for O.
I really just want some popcorn.
*I'm always, always trying to come up with new things to make and pack for O to make life interesting. I would absolutely love any feedback with your favorite foods to give to your kids.
