The flight home was great, especially since hubby gave me the upgrade to business class on our long stretch. What a gem! And what a difference that makes. I woke up the day after we got back with extra energy and a ready-to-go attitude.
School starts for us on Sunday.
A new school year = new beginnings, new friendships, new teachers and new opportunities. So how is everyone getting ready for the new school year? For this family, it was a good day to be a mum of 3. Pottery Barn Kids is having a buy two get one free promo. Yup, my smallest person basically got all his new back to school stuff for free 🙂 Now that’s a great start in anyones books.
Besides the morning traffic, I would say that packing lunch boxes probably brings me the most Back To School Anxiety.
That should be a thing don’t you think? #backtoschoolanxiety
Anyway, a few years back I had the delight in meeting a lady by the name of Jen, from MAMA.PAPA.BUBBA blog here in Kuwait. She is a Canadian based writer on all things mom, kid, creativity, nutrition, family and travel. She has been a huge source of inspiration for myself as an expat mum and her kids lunch box ideas are unrivalled.
Since the start of my kids school careers, we have been fans of PlanetBox Lunch Boxes. With our extreme temps I LOVE that the boxes are non-toxic, non-leaching, safe from BPA, phthalates, and lead. I LOVE that they are strong, high quality stainless steel and warrantied for 5 years. I LOVE the little compartments which makes variety a key element when planning. I LOVE that they are dishwasher safe. I LOVE all the accessories available: magnets for design, knives, forks, specials little containers that then fit into the lunch box itself for specialty foods, fruit salad for example.
The website boasts so many different combinations of foods and food ideas for you to be inspired from, they have an entire tab on the website dedicated to Meal ideas. It truly takes the stress out of #backtoschoolanxiety
If you have any Back To School favourite tips we would love to hear from you and share them with our readers, after all as moms, we need to lift each other up and get (and offer up) all the help we can.
Much love and good luck for the first week back to school for our Kuwait readers.
Now, I need to get back to labelling.
