The delights of parenthood! My dear, darling daughter managed to lose her lunchbox already. This would be day 2 of kindergarten. Really makes me glad I didn’t get the Laptop Lunches box.
The school has a lost and found, but it hasn’t turned up there yet. The custodian said she’d keep an eye out since sometimes these just get given to the wrong teacher.
That’s the whole thing, including the containers inside her box. Plus her head band, which her grandparents had just bought on Tuesday and that really does help to keep her hair out of her face during class. But I know my daughter, and she just likes having her hair lose. She says she doesn’t look like the real Ariel with her hair pulled back. Which is funny since it’s been pulled back most days since she had enough hair to pull back.
I took her television and computer privileges, which I had previously warned her would be the consequence for losing her lunch things at school. This, of course, started because on day 1 she lost the ice pack to her lunch.
Much as I hate to, it looks like time for disposables until she’s responsible. Makes more sense than buying new constantly. But I’m going to tell her to keep her things so that she can show me that she’s not losing them. Have to have her teacher’s cooperation, I assume, but what else to do?
