For young children the first day of school can be very exciting. It can also be very scary. Or maybe most common, a little of both. If you pack your child a lunch, slip a photo of you, your family or a favorite pet inside on top of the sandwich. When I did this in my kindergartner’s lunch box the report came back to me that he shouted “What’s this doing in here?!” But I know he loved it.
OK, maybe I was doing it for me!
I don’t remember my first day of school but I’m sure I would have wanted a picture of my puppy in my Hopalong Cassidy lunchbox.
