Canadian mom Alina Hiltz sent her 9-year-old daughter off to school with a perfectly acceptably packed school lunch box one day. At least so she thought. But when her daughter came home and Alina unpacked the dirty lunch box, she found out her daughter wasn’t too thrilled with the offerings. When my kids don’t like their lunch, they just don’t eat it. But Alina’s daughter took it to whole new level. She left the BEST NOTES expressing her dissatisfaction.
I first learned about the adorable, hysterical notes when her mom posted one as a response to my Packing School Lunch: Fantasy vs. Reality video and I died laughing. Literal tears running down my face. I asked Alina if I could share the notes with you because they are THE. MOST. BRILLIANT. THING. I have seen in a long time. So here they are. You’re welcome.
“Don’t like the ham.” Her daughter wrote on a napkin shred. (Um, can we give this mom some points for even PACKING a napkin???)
I THOUGHT YOU DIDN’T LIKE YOGURT, KID??????
Listen kid, there is never too much sushi. Sushi is the best food on earth. Trust me on this.
I agree. Tuna pockets are disgusting. Total fail, mom.
In the kid’s defense here, her mom asked her what she wanted and she requested a wrap. In her sleep-deprived “I HAVEN’T HAD MY COFFEE YET” state, Alina made a sandwich instead of a wrap. And her daughter called her out. Because you just DON’T DO THAT to a person. When someone is fantasizing about having a wrap all through math and social studies and then open their lunchbox to find a regular, old sandwich, it can be devastating. I mean, GET IT TOGETHER MOM. (Kidding, Alina.)
After reading her notes, I’ve become a big fan of Alina’s daughter. I like a girl who doesn’t hold back and asks for what she wants. She has a bright future ahead of her as a CEO. Or a food critic. I just hope I never own a restaurant she steps foot in.
