Do you know what I say when someone asks: what do you do at MOMables?
I do many things. From creating menus, testing recipes and listening to parents who need a little help in their lunch making… to running the blog, meeting new people and empowering others to do their best each and every day.
It has been an AMAZING year. I launched a company, had a baby, traveled with the kids, survived a summer with limited childcare while working full time and finally learned to ask and find help.
I am no super mom. I don’t own a red cape. I am a mom on a mission and today I will share it with you. If you find this at all inspiring, please share this post with your friends.
My mission is to help parents make fresh school lunches.
No matter the number of kids, how old and how picky
If you are willing to give it a try, I will help you.
Our children are our future.
It’s our responsibility to take care of them
Today, tomorrow and every day after that.
Being too busy
Not having enough time
And not knowing what to pack…
Are excuses I don’t want to hear.
It’s time to roll up our sleeves,
To take ten minutes each day and pack their lunch.
Letting someone else do our job is unacceptable.
The government, schools and administrators…
Make decisions for us behind a desk.
They are never encouraging,
They are not listening.
They don’t tap you on your shoulder and say…
DO YOUR BEST.
“I just don’t know how”
I’ve been there – I say.
My mission is clear:
I help parents pack fresh school lunches.
You are no longer alone,
Starring into your refrigerator…
Wondering what to pack for lunch.
There are THOUSANDS of parents like us.
Parents who want to do better…
They just don’t know how.
It all starts with a plan.
It’s a guide to help you…
Our children deserve better.
Unhealthy, prepackaged and mystery food…
Should not be fed to them.
We are never going to get rid of the problem
Unless we take a stand for our children.
It’s time to make our own decisions
And be the example we want our kids to become.
Our plans are working for many.
Will you join our lunch revolution?
I will not stop.
I will not go away.
I am here to stay.
I do this for my children.
And those I yet not know.
MOMables exists because of them.
Their needs are simple and unmet.
Let us restore the love for fresh food
Wholesome, real and homemade.
School lunches that are nutritious.
Food our children will love.
Meals meant to nourish and help them grow.
Of course they’ll love it.
You made the lunch…
With intention and LOVE.
Thank you for an amazing first year.
For being supportive on this blog, at MOMables, on Facebook and on Twitter.
With courage and love,
A special thanks to Glenn. Your worlds of wisdom and reminders to go out and educate! empower! encourage! are the fuel I need to make a stand and help others.
