This Mom's Amazing Lunchbag Puns Are Giving The Internet Life...And Making Her Kids Groan
Written by Hillary Nguyen-Don
Before your kids are headed off to school it’s important that you pack them a nice healthy lunch so that they’re not starving in the middle of class. But you don’t want to just make them boring ol’ lunches. You should add some sort of treat to put a smile on your kid’s face. Try adding something like:
- A dessert
- A note
- A couple bucks for a vending machine snack
When it comes to desserts or extra money for an additional snack, you might want to do that once a week so your kid isn’t eating sugar and fats every lunch hour. However a note won’t add any extra pounds to your child.
The classic ‘Have a great day!’ or ‘I love you’ can get a little boring. Why not change things up with some hilarious puns?
Jenn Aguilar is a mother from Calgary, Alberta and says that she used to put notes in her sons’ lunches but they would occasionally get lost or the boys, 14-year-old Kale and 12-year-old Konnor, just didn’t read them.
She decided to change up her tactic by coming up with another alternative. Instead of writing a note on another piece of paper, she began drawing cartoons and writing puns on the brown lunch bags!
‘This is my love language to my boys and it shows that they are special and they mean a lot to me every time they look at it,’ she said in an interview with Buzzfeed.
Her puns usually revolved around hip hop since that’s what her sons listen to. ‘The boys realized that hip-hop today isn’t what it was and have reverted to the 90s hip-hop I used to listen to, so it’s our bonding thing,’ she said.
