Oreos & Ziplock

In our school system this year all the kids have a mid-morning snack. This idea is a little foreign to me since kids (including mine) have been making it through the school day for hundreds of years just on breakfast until lunch time--but that's not my point.

My point is that instead of just packing a snack for Chloe everyday, each student takes turns bringing snacks for the WHOLE CLASS. It always ends up being a very expensive ordeal. Today is Chloe's last snack day and nothing would do that we had Oreos. Although we live in a residential area in town, we are still a little bit away from the closest grocery store, but one block away from a 7-11. So, we got robbed by 7-11 corp...I mean paid the extra money for the two packs of Oreos, and I spent the next twenty minutes putting 3 Oreos in each little Ziplock.

Now for the good part. The second package had one less cookie in it than the first, so naturally we told Chloe the polite thing to do was to take that one for herself to make sure all her classmates had 3 cookies each. Oh my goodness. You would think the house was burning down. "Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! Give it to so-and-so that I don't like!!! NOOOOO! That's not fair. I'm not doing that. Give me something else." You get the drift.

People, I beg of you, why can't we just bring our own snack everyday?!?!

Hugs, love and chihuahua kisses

LOL. Putting others ahead of you doesn't come naturally to kids. Too bad some people don't learn it by adulthood!!

Wow, that seems needlessly complicated, and especially silly since all we hear about is childhood obesity, but here we are feeding them MORE!

That is so funny. Funny because it's happening to you this time. ;)

BYOS... yeah! Jacob's school does that. And last year they made kids throw away snacks that weren't healthy. Only the kids who brought a healthy snack could eat. (Thank goodness Jacob took an orange that day ;)

I mean... think about it. Some kid chewin' celery in my face. Ah. Wouldn't bother me. I'll just eat the whole bag o' oreos when I get home. 'Cause by then I'll be starving ;)

LOL... thinking of others first comes later I think. :) I agree... bring your own snack. What happens if you bring something that another kid is allergic to or doesn't like. We never had snack day either. That's silly. :) I would love to teach you how to make pretty cakes. I am still learning myself, but I would love to. (Wow...Kappa Phi flash back.) We still on today?

You ATE Oreo's....I can't even THINK. I can not speak to you...here is my Mom.

Oreo is melodramatic & does not understand that there REALLY are cookies called Oreo's. Thank you for coming to his blog & for praying for my son.

PS: Oreo says if your cat gets tired of that bed down there he would like to have it! :)

That's a hard one to teach them, isn't it?!

And I DON'T understand the fascination with food at schools these days either...between daily snacks and the constant treats the teachers hand out to reward the kids for good (I mean what should be expected) behavior...yeesh! :)

I think this is a real imposition for the parents--and the kids sure don't need it. I've noticed sign ups for snacks on the doors of our Sunday school classrooms at church.
