You know from past experience that said daughter can not finish an 8 oz cup of yogurt for lunch, and that rather than throwing it away she will leave the half-finished, uncovered container in her lunch bag to avoid being told by nosy counselors or teachers that she needs to eat it. This creates a mess.
So, you keep yogurt tubes in the freezer. You keep them there because there is no refrigeration for camp or school lunches, and they will slowly thaw and be ready to eat by lunch time. Plus, they’ll keep the rest of her lunch cold.
But, yogurt tubes are impossible to open. If a child rips them wrong, she will not be able to get most of the disgusting neon-colored, yogurt-like substance out without cutting the inner corner of her already sore mouth.
So, the night before camp you pre-cut the frozen yogurt tube’s top off, then you wrap it in aluminum foil, and put a small plastic bag around that.
After camp the next day you ask your daughter if it all worked out ok. She gives you a huge grin and says, “Yes, that was the best!” You feel good, you feel like you’ve got this mother thing down pat. You try to remember that feeling the next week when you send her off to a camp field trip to a water park with no sunscreen and no hat.
