I made an egg salad sandwich a couple of days ago and popped a couple of the eggs into these fun hard-boiled egg shapers my mom had found at the Daiso store. And then, every time I opened the fridge that little bunny and bear were practically begging to be put in a bento. So the girls got bento lunches today. (Animal shaped hard-boiled eggs, hush puppies, black olives, shaped rice balls, orange yogurt, and mandarin orange slices) When dinner time rolled around, I figured we'd just grab leftovers out of the fridge and wing it. But some of the plastic bento containers were still strewn around the counter and Ro and Ree were just dying to make their own bento dinners. Well what the heck, why not? We had a whole bunch of time to kill since TubaDad is away again on a short business trip. So I wheeled over the Learning Tower, let them pick their own containers, and handed them food to put in. They did pretty well and had a ball. And, um, not too terribly much of the food ended up on the floor. (cough cough) Yes, they're wearing pajamas during the day. Again. And yes, I did straighten things up a just a weensy little bit before snapping this picture. Heh. (Leftover steamed rice with black sesame seeds, microwavable pork roast, steamed broccoli, fishy container with A1 sauce (don't gag, we ran out of soy sauce, sorry!), apple slices) After the food stopped flying, Ro said she wanted to take her own peeshur, so I handed her the camera. Interesting angle... PS: The sharp-eyed folks who said the one of the girls' hair was parted on a different side (in the below post) were correct! Ree (in blue and green) was wearing hers parted on the left side, as usual, while Ro (in brown and pink) had hers parted on a new side, the right side. Both girls still have their bracelets on, Ree on the left and Ro on the right, but I think they were hard to see in the photo. The guesses were great -- I particularly liked the one that guessed "they are standing still???" Ha! Oh, and Ree isn't sporting new self-styled bangs, as far as I know (hmmmm, that's not saying much, is it?). She's just always had a whole bunch of wild wispies on that one side.
