Soccer Snacks; Trash Free Style
So I kinda stretched the truth to my little cub when soccer season started. I told her there was a new rule this year and all snacks after soccer matches had to be healthy.
Oreos, pop tarts and fruit snacks did not qualify.
I totally made this rule up.
But I made sure I was the first parent to sign up to bring snacks, thus hopefully…crossing my fingers…setting the standard for snacks to come.
Of course my trash-free style meant I had to think ahead for this occasion.
Our basket, which usually holds all of Cubby’s leggens and shorts, was packed with apples, oranges and bananas as well as a container of homemade peanut butter and oatmeal cookies.
Trash-free drinks are tricky. I let the Cub pick the drinks out as long as it was in a #1 or #2 plastic bottle versus landfill bound, juice pouches. Surprisingly she was completely cool with this stipulation and choose Gatorade. After the match we had a few extra, so she had a “special” drink with dinner the last two nights.
She thinks she is cool.
I know I am.
…well… until the day comes when she realizes I totally make my own rules up.
Cheers to spring.
Cheers to planning ahead.
Cheers to finding solutions to trashy problems.
