On back to school night, I signed up to bring a snack in today.
I had to figure out what to bring that would feed 24 kids.
Mmm, Little Debbie snacks. Is it wrong that my mind immediately went there? Some friends made me feel better about that.
“Well, oatmeal cream pies are somewhat healthy,” they joked. “There is the oatmeal..”
Still, I didn’t think the teacher would appreciate Little Debbie snacks.
Or, if she didn’t care, surely one of the parents would have a fit. I could picture a woman stomping in the class—she’s the type that wears a cardigan tied loosely around her neck, I’m sure. She’d say, “I heard from my precious Makennzee (yes, her kid will have one of those weirdly spelled names because she wanted her kid to be “different.”) that she had a snack with cream in the middle? Makennzee isn’t allowed those things. If it’s not organic, I’d rather her not eat it.”
Well, sorry crazed mother. I wasn’t going to do an organic snack. If you want organic only, go to private school.
I ended up with these:
I mean, who doesn’t love Cheez-Its? And they are educational thanks to the letters on the front. So the kids can eat and spell!
It’s a win-win!
