Paper Trays can be confusing. We were down an employee as my boss took a couple personal days. Because it was just the two of us we served on paper trays. It makes me smile when I see the kindergartners lining up at the dish window to drop their plastic spoon and paper tray. They look so confused when I tell them they can throw those away too.
Are you her other grandma? A second grader asked my co-worker if she was another students grandmother. I nearly died of laughter as my co-worker is only in her early 40s. Ouch...grandma should be a four letter word.
Bye Bye Milk. We now have to provide water in a fancy-dancy jug for all the kids to
Kiwi and Pizza. Our fresh fruit today was sliced kiwi. I was convinced that few would take it but much to my surprise we ran out before the end of lunch. I heard a few kindergartners talking about the weird "grapes" and how good they were. Um...at least they tried it.
In this corner...strawberry milk. We've been in school for one whole month. In a never before seen event, strawberry milk is kicking chocolate milk's butt. Nearly the entire incoming kindergarten class is drinking pink milk. They've told me that "it's willy good." I'm not so sure.
In conclusion, we learned that when in doubt take it to the dish room, pink milk is better than chocolate milk but water wins hands down when it comes out of a cute little dispenser, kiwi can be confused with a grape and you are never to young to look like someones grandma.
That last one still makes me shudder.
What did you learn this week?
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
