Lunch, and Lasting Memories~
I have packed her lunch everyday since preschool. I did it for her sister as well, who by the way told me the other day, "Mom, I think I cried more when you stopped making my lunches."
It was a way of staying connected with them. Some days they got that extra special treat just because. Some days it was the note of encouragement when I knew they had a test to take. Some days just a fun napkin.
I will miss making her lunch. Just as when her sister went off to school a few years back, I continued for a few weeks to set the table for four...I know there will be nights I will wake up next fall and think, "oh no, I forgot to make her lunch!" Only to realize I didn't need to.
Her University has a fabulous meal plan, quite a few of her favorites restaurants on campus as well. And, she is a pretty darn good cook herself. She won't starve. Afterall, her dad said there is always Mac-n-Cheese and good ole Ramen Noodles! LOL
The countdown has begun...one week from today our baby will graduate. And, just like her sister...she will have the biggest grin on her face and nothing will wipe it away!
