I am sad to report that this mama will be returning to work soon. Bah. The idea has been like a little black cloud hovering over my head and I’ll be filling out applications and working the grind shortly after Gaia goes back to school next month.
We are slowly incorporating what-ifs into our daily life. I have lots of milk stored, a schedule that allows Anders to stay at home with one of his parents at all times, and I’ve been able to network with jobs in the area who are looking forward to hiring me on as part of their team! Things are at least looking up even though the change is something none of us are looking forward to.
Since Gaia is going back to school and I’m going back to work, I’ve been playing with ideas for packed meals for both of us. Gaia is the lucky one and she’s got some awesome Hello Kitty bento boxes on their way to me as we speak! And mom, well mom’s got a fancy new lunchbox to carry delicious leftovers and sandwiches in so she doesn’t have to waste lunch breaks looking for food.
Milkdot is a stylish design company specializing in lunchboxes and school bags. Milkdot lunchboxes are both awesome and functional. It has tons of space and not one lunchbox is a dull color! I also love the magnetic handles on my Milkdot lunchbox. 🙂 Milkdot also has safety in mind and no hazardous materials are used in manufacturing their products. Every product is PVC-free and has been thoroughly tested for lead and phthalates in an accredited lab. Considering that your food gets stored in there it’s quite reassuring!
The founder of Milkdot believes that “an effort towards good, no matter how small, can bring growth and positive change for the future of our children and world.” Heck yes!
So boooo for going back to work, but yay for awesome gear to aid me in my adventures!
