    My mom would freeze water in baby food jars & put one in my lunch to keep it cool. This was in the 1960s. She would pack bacon,lettuce & tomato in separate wax paper bags then include toast for me to assemble at lunch. Ah, the days of stay-at-home moms. She had the time and imagination to make a brown bag lunch interesting. And like Linus van Pelt, I got “commercials” in the bag. Talk about feeling loved & special.

    My dad used to say my brother and I ordered from the right hand side of the menu…the side with the prices!

    My mom had my younger brother and me doing “chores” suitable to our ages from about 3 yrs old. We didn’t know they were “chores” as she disguised them as fun and helping mommy. They kept us out of trouble and helped us learn new skills. We emptied wastebaskets, folded laundry, shelled peas, tore up lettuce for salads, etc. Of course, this was the 1950s, she was a stay-at-home mom, and discipline wasn’t a dirty word. We were taught manners, responsibility, and that we weren’t the center of the universe…our dad was!
