Hi guys! I’m finally back with a lunch post! Wyatt was sick Monday and Tuesday with a terrible stomach bug (poor guy) so I don’t have anything to show for those days. I got some new toys over the holiday break though, so I’m hoping to make it up to you with some total cuteness.
First up is the new bento box that I sent Wednesday’s lunch in. This one is a double decker box that’s long and skinny. I’ve never seen one this shape before, so it’s kind of fun. This lunch had a dinner roll, some chicken on skewers, two clementines and a half banana. I also put a message on the roll that was written with the best of intentions, but that, in retrospect, seems a little rude now.
The snack also went in a new box (we left a bag with 3 bento boxes in it on the plane so I had to replace them). The snack box had some dried cranberries, cheesy sandwich crackers, and the other half of the banana. This box broke when I was washing it Wednesday night and I had to get rid of it after only one use. Drat.
I broke out the big cute-ification guns on Thursday. I finally remembered to pick up some nori at the grocery store so I got to use the new face punches I ordered from JBox a few weeks ago on some rice balls. Are those insanely cute or what? I also bought some little alphabet cutters at Ichiban Kan and I used those to cut Wyatt’s name out of baked tofu. The rest of the lunch was a clementine, sesame sticks, peaches with sprinkles and dried cranberries. I was sooooo proud of this lunch that I almost wanted to keep it for myself.
This is what came home. Seriously. That kid sure wants to keep me from getting a big head.
The rice balls…they…um…what the hell did he do to them? None of them looked like they even had a nibble taken out of them. So what’s up with the faces? Did he just scrape random facial features off? Why would he do that? I’m baffled.
Anyway, this just goes to show that no matter what you do to a lunch, you can’t make a five-year-old eat anything he doesn’t want to eat.
Friday’s snack was fairly simple — just a few clementines and some graham crackers. It was also packed in a new box. I’ll try to take some pictures of the whole thing (with lid) next week.
Until then, have a great weekend!
