A Queensland mother has taken to Facebook to share the embarrassing story of sending her five-year-old daughter to school with a rather inappropriate lunchbox filler.

“EPIC lunchbox fail when you tell your five year old Preppie to put a frozen juice pouch in her lunchbox and you forget the other pouches in your freezer!” she wrote in a post that’s now gone viral.

It wasn’t until she’d received a phone call from the teacher that she even became aware of the mix up.  Her young daughter had headed off to school with a raspberry flavoured vodka sorbet.

“It made for a veeeery interesting phone call from the teacher!” she said.

“They were very good about it. I made light of it (it was obviously innocent on my daughter’s behalf). I apologised for not sending enough for the teachers and they just laughed thankfully.”

I think we have all been there, right?  In one way or another these little mistakes are a good reminder that we are all only human.

Have you got a similar embarrassing story to tell. We would love to hear it!

  • That is so funny the story made me do laugh ????


  • Oh no! Oops


  • HAHAHA what a good embarrassing story, I bet she’ll make sure she checks her daughter lunchbox everyday from now on.


  • Wow, that makes for a good story.


  • Oopsie!! This story made for a good giggle ????


  • Oops


  • oops lets hope the little one did not eat/ drink it at all


  • haha oops! I bet there were a few laughs in the staff room that afternoon!


  • That is so funny. I’d feel terrible about it but at least people can make a joke of it.


  • Haha that’s a classic sleep deprived mum mistake isn’t it. Poor mum ???? just lucky the kid didn’t open it!


  • Oops!


  • Oh that is so funny, at least this is a good example of teachers inspecting the lunch box


  • Ahahahahahahahaha that is hilarious, emabarrassing for mum, but still hilarious. Lucky the teacher and school were so understanding, it could have been a lot worse!


  • I know parents who showed their children how to pack their own lunch boxes a few times and the children were doing it themselves within 3 weeks. Their parents checked them for a few weeks then the kids had to be responsible for themselves. Not impressed by the parents’ attitudes


  • Sorry but maybe I’m just old fashioned but I pack my kids lunch for them so I find it hard to believe this story. It’s not bad though. At least her daughter took it to her teacher and luckily didnt drink it because try then it wouldn’t be one bit funny.

    • I agree. From one side is funny, from the other quite irresponsible.
