The school lunch box

What is in your child's school lunch box?

Emma takes pretty boring stuff to school in her lunch box.

A sandwich.

A piece of fruit.

A drink.

Nothing too interesting.

Its what comes home in the lunch box that freaks me out.

Today there were 3 of these:

And a good half dozen of these:

I thought girls were meant to be 'sugar and spice and all things nice'?

You want to know something a little pathetic?

I am scared of snails.


They gross me out completely.

I'd rather kill a cockroach the size of a chihuahua than have to even lay eyes on a snail.

Do you have a creepy / slimey / crawly critter that grosses you out more than all the others???

Haha...Violet has bought home many snails from preschool last year! She has an obsession over them!

Slugs it is for me...ewwww!

Critters I can do, bugs, snails, mice, 1 leg, 2 legs, 8 legs, a zillion legs - No problems! Once when we were living in Malaysia I walked downstairs one night to go to the loo and it wasn't until I was in there that I noticed a centipede as big as my foot. Not phased.

Vomit, blood, mucus no qualms. But even just writing the words "sour milk" makes my stomach start to knot!!! I actually have a sour milk phobia (and yet still eat and enjoy yoghurt - go figure).

Oh I love your girls!

I just drove home in the dark, with something flying around in my car. Not happy with that!

Carolin said...

Yuck! I hate snails and cicada shells - even the thought of someone squashing a snail shell gives me the heebie jeebies

Rose said...

Oh, but that's such a cute snail. lol

Carl said...

Hah, great post!

And we don't get bugs like that here. Ewwww!!! Having said that, Miss Finleigh does enjoy her insects and creepy crawlies. She de-winged a moth this fall before the rest of them smartly went into hiding.

Alison that is hilarious! I have never seen anything like that around here!....althou Pep will no doubt surprise me!
As for school lunches, Cooper insists on a Bento Japanese style lunch!

Lacey said...

Ugh, that would be anything that creeps, crawls, or even walks. I hate them all!

VMI said...

Oh My! That would have undone me for quite awhile.

Michelle said...

I can't believe they put those in their lunch box! wow! I used to "collect" snails when I was a kid :)

Just Writing said...

Your girls are super feminine and sweet and yet... that must have thrown you for a loop, :)

GROSSSSSSSSS. What the hell IS that second thing, anyway? Should I know what that is? (We don't have snails here. too cold. too dry).

Alison said...

OK, so Carolin you don't want to know that Emma accidentally stepped on one and squashed it - with bare feet.

Jenny - SO jealous of your lack of snails in Colorado!!! The last picture was a cicada shell. They don't bother me as they are just an empty shell.
