Lobbying on - new experiences
The much Awaited Lunch child transition is today.
Anush's hours at school extend to 2pm instead of her usual 11am. (School opens at 8am.)
She has been looking forward to it for long.
She feels like a " big lady" she says, carrying lunch to school.
The lunch options of her choice as proclaimed by her include:
- curd rice with lime salted pickle and bhindi
- plain pasta but only the long one and sometimes the tube one and mushroom soup
- noodles with veggies
- sandwich ( usually cheese or aloo onion cucumber or maple syrup and now peanut butter)
- chocos/ honey loops
One fruit/ assorted dry fruits were found acceptable on my request.
I hope she enjoys the reality of it as well.
Have assembled a colourful set of lunch/ snack boxes to pack her lunch in. She has to handle it herself independently hence am not sure if a "tiffin carrier" is a good idea yet.
Check this article on the subject of tiffin carriers.
Aditi also had a first - last evening was her first visit to a five star hotel. So what if all she did was just doze in the lobby waiting with her paati, till I finished the office do.
And Anushka who stayed home exclaimed to Aditi on our return " What a brave girl Aditi- you stayed for so long without me." LOL!!
