From my 11 year-old, Hanover: "Mom, why don't you make my lunch? All the other kids' moms make their lunch."
Because I know you can do it yourself, just like you've been doing it since you were 7.
Because I want you to know you don't have to rely on other people for things you can do yourself.
Because you know best what you want.
Maybe the other kids don't know how to do it themselves.
Because I don't want to.
And Flurpee, at 8, is making her own lunches, too.
