y mom was awesome about lunches. We got a variety of sandwiches, including baloney, ham, meatloaf, cheese, cream cheese and black olives, and yeah, the occasional PB&J (or better yet: PB& honey). Not only that, she knew which of the 6 kids wanted pickle, mayo, ketchup, mustard and in what proportions (and who wanted creamy or crunchy PB). No tomato: The bread would have turned truly awful.
AND a piece of one of the three standard fruits. AND 2 cookies wrapped in a napkin. AND enough small change to afford two half-pints of milk. And all before 8:30 am so we could catch the bus. Or 7:30 for the band kids.
