Getting your kids to do chores is sometimes a chore in itself. Its the same with convincing your finicky mini-me to eat something other than chicken nuggets or plain cheese pizza for every meal every day ad infinitum.
Well, one Oklahoma City dad devised a brilliant scheme to keep his son from burying a weeks worth of lunch-bag bananas in the bottom of his backpack.
Admit it, parents: Kids like what they like.
OKC Reddit user andyrine knows this.
So he shared his revelation with fellow Reddit r/daddit readers last week in a post titled My 3 year old packed his own lunch today, in which he shared a photo of his sons soft lunch cooler packed to overflowing (onto Dads couch) with his tots four favorite food groups: cheesy poofs, more cheesy poofs and two Marvel action figures (Spider-Man and Captain America).
It set off a wave of replies from r/daddit readers:
He knows what he likes, commented Redditor Meatball_express.
Im 42 and I did that last Tuesday. Clearly, the kid is ahead of the game, responded remlu.
Im 32 and Id eat this, said salty_box.
(So would we at Chicken-Fried News, to be honest.)
One things for sure, those arent Planters Cheez Balls. God I miss them, lamented user camionmarto.
Another Redditor, Atisekim, clarified: To be fair, the caption for this could also read my 30 year old packed his own lunch today, I told him now that he has a job hes got 2 weeks to get out of my basement. Lol. This is much cuter though.
