Let's just say I'm going to file this one under both "head scratchers" and "lessons learned." See, I have two bagel-loving kids. I thought bagels would be a slam dunk. Even when I was packing lunches up, Big Dog told me just how delicious the bagel looked. So imagine my WTF moment when I opened the lunch boxes tonight and found each bagel only had about three bites in it. Weird. The multicolor cauliflower was also largely uneaten despite the boys gobbling it down at home.
I'm not really sure what happened with the bagels. Too big for polite school eating maybe? But I have to remember the boys both bow to peer pressure. The cauliflower was probably a casualty of nearby "yucks" from lunch table neighbors. Big Dog has given up favorite lunch foods based on the criticism of his peers in the past, I guess I should just expect it.
