Pax’s lunchbag is decorated with planets and rockets; Raines’, per usual, is plain black. We have another old moldy one in a drawer…somewhere…but to invoke Marie Kondo: IT BRINGS NO JOY.

And I want some joy with that Pinterest-worthy food bowl I intend to make for lunch…someday. #snort Or at the very least, a lunchbox that doesn’t immediately make my snacks look sad. DOWN WITH SAD SNACKS!

So now that the school year is (more or less) in full-swing, kiddo-wise…we rounded up a few lunch bags for MAMA. All had to be cute enough to spark some serious joy — at least until you look inside (har har…har).
