Yep, we lasted a whole 9 days before it happened. Something was lost at school today. And not just something, Boo’s lunchbox has decided my lunches were fairly boring. After school today I noticed Boo seemed a bit lighter on the back of his backpack. The spot where his lunchbox normally attaches to his backpack was quite… empty. Light.
Matching backpack, have you seen my lunchbox?
After a bit of tearful explanation (and initially thinking he’d throw out his lunchbox along with his trash) it seems when he left his lunchbox on his seat in the cafeteria to throw away his trash, someone or something absconded with his lunchbox. He told all his friends it had disappeared (but neglected to inform his teacher). We searched the cafeteria lost and found box, but nope. No lunchbox. I might not mind so much if it weren’t the matching Gymboree Blue Camo $12 lunchbox. It matches his backpack, has the aforementioned straps to attach it directly to the backpack to ironically, prevent it from getting lost.
Well, all I can say kid, is get used to bringing lunch in a Galeria shopping bag. Lunchboxes aren’t found here past August 1st.
