Starvin' Marvin

*For the record, this is not a bullying episode. It's just a case of too much sharing.*

Emily has been coming home from school lately STARVING. I figured she was just growing again and didn't think much of it until this morning.

Today she asked me if I could please pack more things in her lunch. Was she extra hungry today? No. She wanted it so the other kids who EAT HER LUNCH FOR HER to have some extras. While it's very thoughtful to make sure your friends have enough to eat, (I know all these kids. Their parents thoughtfully pack lunches for their children each day.) it's also important to make sure you're eating lunch yourself!

I asked Emily what she thought she could do. I suggested she just ask them to stop eating her lunch but she said that doesn't work. Apparently this has been going on for a while.

She decided to write a note. I helped.

Emily also wanted illustrations.
Do you recognize the one with the bangs?

This is so sad and so awesome in the same breath. Ben and I are laughing out loud. Poor Em. Her friends are no dummies though. You're a great cook. I'd eat her lunch too.

Great note by the way!! Well handled. Tell Em that her big friend Jeff will come set them straight if necessary. He doesn't like bullies.
