Sorry for the poor photo quality this week, gang. The rechargeable battery on our good camera died and the new one hasn’t arrived in the mail yet. I had to take all of my bento photos with a phone cam and there’s only so much I can do to fix them in Photoshop.
On Monday I was making some carrots for Augie’s lunch and Wyatt decided he wanted to try one again to see if he liked them. He gave the carrot stick I gave him a thumbs up and asked for them in his snack, but when the box came home they were untouched. Baby steps, I guess. He did eat the clementines and dried cranberries though.
Monday night Wyatt went to child watch at the gym with his dad and he wanted to take his dinner with him. I packed potato slices, grapes, a hard-boiled egg that I’d molded into a car shape (I don’t think you can see it at all in this photo), a garlic naan and ketchup sandwich cut into a heart shape and some salami.
No lunch Tuesday because school was canceled for parent-teacher conferences and Wyatt was home . If you’re wondering about his progress report, he’s doing fine.
Snack and lunch were combined in the big lunch box today. There was a jelly sandwich, applesauce with sprinkles, grapes, baked tofu and cinnamon pita crisps.
If you’re wondering how the applesauce did in the laptop lunchbox, I’ll tell you: it did very POORLY. When I opened his lunchbox to wash it, applesauce was everywhere inside. The fit on the outer box is supposed to be tight enough that when you close it, it acts like a lid for the inner boxes, but this was not how things worked. I’ll admit it’s possible that Wyatt’s lunch was swung around over his head or something, but I will not be packing wet stuff without a lid on it ever again.
Lunch on Thursday was sliced deli ham, pita crackers and some grapes.
Snack was a banana muffin with a few chocolate chips on it and some cuties.
Friday’s snack box had some rolled up deli turkey, a clementine and the last of the banana muffins.
