The girls had an early dismissal day today, and so I prepared the usual early dismissal day lunch of chicken nuggets and cheesy noodles. On the days that I just have E3 and F here for lunch I'm too impatient to wait for nuggets and noodles to cook and opt for something quicker and/or simpler. Like, nuggets and noodles is some elaborate gourmet lunch that I can't be bothered with, right?
So, I start the lunch prep as soon as we got home from picking up F, thinking the big girls would be arriving in about 20 minutes. Twenty-five minutes later, I was wondering where they were....but, maybe they stopped to help E1's teacher clean-up the classroom. Thirty minutes later I called the school...busy....busy...busy. Finally I got through and asked if the girls were still there.
Why, yes, they were. School doesn't dismiss today until 1:45 - not 11:45 like I thought.
Not a big deal, really.
Except I made more lunch than two 4 year-olds and I can possibly consume.
