The last few lunchbags I’ve done have been pretty bad so I didn’t even post them. My daughter has a field trip today so I took a little extra time and made a nice one. She was pretty excited when she saw it. She was trying to guess what I drew saying things like, “Ugh, it’s probably Moana…” I was starting to think maybe I should stop doing them, but when she saw it she actually squealed. Then she began to frown. I asked her why she was upset and she told me she wanted to keep it.
I think that is why I like doing the lunchbags. There is something nice about how they are disposable. They are fleeting and temporary except for a photo. It is something special that I do for my daughter that is only for her and not long for the world.
