Winter Vacation Week
No school this week, and I ended up with a stomach virus. On top of my chronic morning sickness that was no fun. I tried to hide out in bed all day so that no one else gets sicks..so far so good, crossing my fingers!
Ryan has been enjoying his snack/gift box he got at preschool. His friend did a beautiful job decorating.
Contents: 2 old-fashioned striped candy sticks, a heart lollipop, a small bag of tortilla chips, a vegan rice krispie treat, lemonade, a flashlight, a glow stick, & glow in the dark glasses.
New bento goodies arrived in the mail. This set is intended for Nate. I keep trying to find more boyish or gender neutral items.
Since no snacks or lunches needed to be packed this week, here is one of the boys' meals at home. I got these cool plates at a little toy store in Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. The little holes in the middle are meant for holding an egg, but they're great for dips and small finger foods.
Under the food there are pictures of The Little Prince, Babar, and Elmer the elephant.
Lunch: cold spinach, buckwheat soba noodles, honeydew melon, peanuts. Ryan wanted almonds instead, and an added vegetable gyoza.
