This year Mimi is in pre-school for three full days and two half days. When she has a full day she eats her packed lunch at school with her classmates. My mom raised Mimi pretty much the first two years of her life because I worked full time. Mimi acts like my mom because they spent so much time together. For example, my mom doesn’t like cucumber seeds and would cut them out everytime they would eat them together. I think this is a silly habit and wanted to break it so one day I packed cucumbers with seeds in Mimi’s lunch so she could at least taste the seeds and realize they were fine to eat. Each day, the teachers send back the lunch box with everything the child doesn’t eat so the parents can see. This is how Mimi’s lunch box came back that day.
And this is how I have been packing the cucumbers ever since.
