I have just a little rant today. I don't know about anyone else but I HATE snacks! No, not my nightly snacks while I sit and watch Biggest Loser, but sports snacks. I have 3 kids. They are all in sports. For some reason, every sport requires you to take a turn bringing snacks for all the kids. This drives me crazy! I mean, it was cute the first couple times when they were in preschool, or kindergarten, but come son is in the 4Th grade. Haven't we moved past the cuteness of it? He is there to play ball, not wonder what snack Joeys mom brought that day. And don't get me wrong, I love myself a good cupcake, cookie, or fruit leather, and I have even been known to buy a yummy licorice rope at the concession stand, but jeez, my kids game gets over at 8pm and I really don't want him to eat a bunch of sugar. OK, but here is my real problem with it now... no one asked me to sign up to bring them, now, they just make a schedule of WHEN you need to bring your snacks.
Please, oh please, snack Nazis....its hard enough for me to remember to bring snacks and water for my own kids, I don't want to be responsible for yours too!

Oh, I think you and Erin would have a field day on this topic! She and I staged a protest the last two sporting events because WHY do we need to give our children a snack when practice gets over at 5:30? It's dinnertime! It just caused an arguement between child and parent. Child who wants the snack, and parent who wants child to eat dinner! argh.
We don't have these problems at swim lessons :)
