Today was Field Day. If you are a child, this is A Big Damn Deal and your Mama packs a Super Lunch. Ham and cheese, with separate lettuce and tomato so your sandwich doesn't get soggy. Watermelon. Little Debbie Cakes you aren't normally allowed to have. Sliced cucumbers. Chips. Eat or share, doesn't matter. Because it's such a long day? Your mom packs your lunch in a special cooler. Because she loves you.
Then, your mom shows up two hours late because the OTHER kid was up texting all night long and couldn't get her act together. And when your mom DOES show up? The teachers are lovin' it. Absolutely lovin' it. Because when you sent your kid with this really cool lunch?
Guess what you left in the front pouch.
There's a reason I'm the most popular mom on the sidelines. I have ice, too.
