And it’s rough out there. Sometimes, you nail it, and other times, you fail, in which case you’ll find a friendly letter inside your child’s lunchbox come home time.
“A letter was sent home about sending Sailor to school with an ‘inappropriate item’ in her lunchbox.”
The item is question – a homemade gluten-free choc chip muffin.
“[They said] it’s inappropriate because it’s an unhealthy item in a lunchbox, and contravenes the school policy on lunches,” he continued.
“It’s so embarrassing and you feel like the worst parent in the world. You’re trying to do the right thing – we made [the muffins] together on the weekend, it was a lovely father-daughter, mother-daughter experience cooking together… and then the school goes WAMO.”
