Gen X Parents Got Nothing on Gen Y Parents Fancy Lunch Making Skills

Millennials get a bad rap just because they grew up in the social media, Pinterest, visually stimulating generation and have so many more opportunities to do amazingly creative things in their lives.

I admit, I think my generation, Gen X, have some envy over the opportunities they have. One of the things they put their energy into that marvel me is the creative ways they pack lunches. I wish I had the drive to put so much effort and work into the fabulous pieces of art they create.

I was going through my Pinterest food page and marveled at the endless stream of pretty lunches and snacks Gen Y pack for their children. I put together a montage of our Gen X lunch v. the Millennial lunch.

Above is my gen version of peanut butter and jelly or a peanut butter and banana sandwich on the left compared to a Gen X take on the same classic meal.

Look below, what Gen X does with a bowl of fruit, hot dogs, a bowl of apples and grapes, a clementine, ants on a log and pear and cheese on the right! (smile)

Watch First Time Expecting Women get pregnancy advice from THEIR moms (VIDEO)

Another Mother’s Day has wrapped. The annual holiday is also a great time for daughters who are mothers to reflect on the advice they were given by their own mothers.
A recent 1-800-Flowers.com survey found that  3 out of 4 women seek their mother’s advice with 18-24 year olds  seeking relationship and health advice; 25-39 year olds seeking parenting advice and 40 to 55 and 55+ seeking home projects insights. 

The relationship differs depending on age. Millennials say they are best friends with their moms, they talk about everything (36.9%); while Gen Xers and Boomers say their relationship with mom is complicated (31.2% and 31.0% respectively).
It’s no surprise then to discover that the survey results found that 79% of women would feel positively if someone told them they were just like their mother.
And first time pregnant women too turn to their moms for advice and counsel on what to expect.

The Daily Share sat first-time mothers-to-be across from THEIR moms to ask them any and every question they had about what to expect from motherhood.

The result is a candid and endearing short video. Check it out:
