Tuesday Tips with Jare Bear and I-yo

Thank you for all the questions and participating in Jare Bear and I-yo’s last post as my charges! Here are their responses:

Jare Bear:

What do you recommend nanny’s make for lunch?

I recommend doritos, yogurt, goober sandwich, soft cookies, carrots and broccoli and green apples!

What is your best tip for dealing with temper tantrums? What should we do if you have one?

Try changing the subject or just leave me alone!

What is your favorite subject in school?

Science and math.

Who is your best friend and why?

Seth, Thomas, Andy and Jayden. Seth is my best friend because we randomly started hanging out and had a lot in common. Thomas is my best friend because I was lonely and he asked me to be his friend. Andy is my best friend from second and third grade because again we just started hanging out and became friends. Last but not least, Jayden became one of my best friends because he and I played the same game at recess.

Do you like having a sibling?

I wish my younger sibling was a lot younger. We are close in age so we don’t always get along or hang out. She is into ponies and drawing. I like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and foreign money!

What is your pet peeve?

I hate it when my sister purposely annoys me. Or when she makes noises while I am doing homework.

Do you like having a nanny?

Ya! They are fun because they play games, they are always there for you, they try to fix bad days and reward good days with stuff like going to the park or having Pinkberry.

What is your favorite thing to do with your nanny?

I like going to the local mall and hanging out by the lake. We chase birds and make up plays in the outdoor stage.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

New Zealand because their money is awesome!

What is your favorite color?

Pink

Do you do chores at home? Which ones?

Yes, I clean my bathroom, dust my room, feed my fish (I have lots of fish), and filling up water bottles.

What is your favorite tv show?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and How is Money Made.

Do you have a special talent?

I can jump on a pogo stick more than 500 jumps! I can do awesome tricks in the pool.

What would you suggest nannies do to be more fun?

Just be who you are because you are already fun! 🙂

I-yo:

What do you recommend nanny’s make for lunch?

No peanut butter because some people are allergic to it. I like pizza Lunchables, Chewy bars, Capri Sun Super V, and last but not least a surprise treat like candy or popcorn!

What is your best tip for dealing with temper tantrums? What should we do if you have one?

Put me in the calm down corner so I can relax.

Who is your best friend and why?

Alexis, because she always helps me with my problems.

Do you like having a sibling?

No, I would like a sister though

What is your pet peeve?

When my brother goes in my room

Do you like having a nanny?

Sometimes, because I like when she takes us to the park or out for a treat, but I don’t see my parent’s that much.

What is your favorite thing to do with your nanny?

Going to Pinkberry or the lake!

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

Hollywood and Paris because Hollywood is where acting camps are and Paris because it is so beautiful there and the Effel Tower lights up at night!

What is your favorite color?

Magenta and purple and pink!

Do you do chores at home? Which ones?

Yes, my favorite one is cleaning my mom’s makeup brushes.

What is your favorite tv show/movie?

Harry Potter and Judy Moody

Homemade Lunchables

This morning I got to work and being towards the end of the week, all the good lunch food has been eaten. The kids begged me not to make another turkey sandwich because they were so bored of eating the same thing over and over. I have to admit, I was getting bored of making it for them. So I pondered how to make a good healthy lunch and it hit me! A healthy version of lunchables. The packaged lunchables are high in sodium and preservatives which are not healthy.  The meat is high in fat and the crackers are just starch. Plus the crackers and 2 pieces of cheese and meat do not fuel a kid for very long.

Lunchables 2.0:

Fat Free Turkey breast lunch meat cut in fourths (about 8-10 fourths or 3 pieces of lunch meat)

Deli Cut Cheese (we had American, Cheddar and Provolone so I did a combo of all three- again 8-10 fourths slices)

Crackers (Wheat Thins, Bagel rounds, Ritz, etc they will all work.. 8-10 crackers so the kids can make mini sandwiches

Gogurt (shoutout to Chobani for their Kids Greek yogurt!)

Fresh fruit (today was a medly of oranges, tangerines and strawberries)

Fruit Snacks (healthier pick to Lunchables chocolate candy treat)

100% Juice Box (CapriSun Super V8 is the current juice of choice)

I would have added a veggie but the kids finished up the carrots yesterday. Extra serving at dinner and we are all good 🙂

Total time to make this lunch? 5 minutes. Super easy and the kids feel like they are gettting a special treat!

Have a Great Day!
