My mom offered to make lunch for the girls yesterday and was immediately surrounded by a swarm of yelling, hopping girls (ok, there are only two of them, but they're loud enough and fast enough to make you think there are ten of them in the room). Here's what she heard before the word "lunch" had even left her mouth: "I know, I know, yet's make bentos!" (let's make bentos) "I hep you, you need hep, Wela? I hep!" (I help you) "What dis, Wela? You need one of deez?" "We can all eat with dis, because we is flamly" (family) "I pick dis stuff, Wela, see dis one, you see it, see it?" "Straws, we need straws. Yots of straws." "Gimme that pink straw or I'm gonna take you down!" (Ok, I made that one up, but you know she was thinking it) "Popcorn, Wela, is dare popcorn? Mama said we could have some popcorn." "I want suhyami! (salami) Can I have suhyami. What dee soy sauce for? What you put it in? You need a fishie bottle? I get you fishie bottle." "Ooo, pwetty." "Mmm mmm mmm" (That's all we heard out of them for about four minutes. It was blissfully quiet.) Bentos: demolished. Is it naptime yet? Ah yes, another peaceful bento-making experience at our house. PS: I've been doing a lot of blog posts lately because all of my favorite tv shows are on summer break. So, late at night, when I finally sit down, I play with photographs and write a little. It's fine, but I really miss having a fun show to unwind with at the end of the day. Does anyone have any tv recommendations? A favorite must-see show that I could catch in summer reruns or buy the DVD set for?
