Last year Kindergarten started off very rocky for us, Brayden cried himself through lunch almost every day during the first few months because he was homesick and wasn't used to being away from me all day. I tried to add special things to his lunchbox to let him know I was thinking of him, like little notes and special snacks, and I'm pretty sure the only thing that made him through it was the fact that he brought lunch from home everyday so at least it was a little familiar for him. Well, this year he's headed into first grade and we're preparing ourselves for the worst while hoping for the best.
One thing we did need to invest in this year for school was quality lunch containers since he packs every day... Plastic baggies and cheap sandwich containers just aren't going to cut it this year! That's why I was so excited when Reuseit.com offered to send us a Bento Box set from Laptop Lunches to review. I've always heard great things about Bento boxes and couldn't wait to try them out.
