I Made It Myself Bento

Since the last day of school on June 1st we have been running and I am not sure exactly why. I thought summer vacation meant relaxing, sleeping in, not making plans just flying by the seat of your pants. Well apparently this is true if your a child, for parents, summer vacation means constant movement.

Yesterday I decided there would be no running around, no playdates, nothing. I am working on some new dresses for my shop and needed to put aside the time to do it. My girls are so fabulous and getting really self sufficient. C as the older sister loves to make M toast and pour her milk. While I work they play wonderfully together and have become slightly addicted to the old school Mario Brother's. You know, the original version from the 80's! I downloaded it to our Wii and they just love it!

So while I worked and they played Mario Brother's and soon lunch crept up on us. They came into my work room and ask if they could make their own bento's. A little hesitant about the mess that was about to be made, I said okay and let them have full reign over my neatly organized bento stash. A few minutes later they came to me with their creations!

Packed in their Easy Lunchboxes they made their own shaped and colored sami's. C did a patriotic star with flag markings and M did a crown lunch punch and a mosaic color pattern. They used only one pick each (which surprised me) and then filled the extra compartments with yummies. I have to say I am pretty impressed with my girls. They are growing up so fast and becoming fiercely independent. What happen to my babies?

I was looking at some of the bento kits on Amazon and some of them are so cute -- even for adults. :)
