In addition to being sleepy, moany and weepy she has been off her food a bit. I guess the pain, lack of sleep and perhaps the pain medication have all combined to put her off. So today I decided a food intervention was required.
Luckily Giffy lent me this amazing book, The Just Bento Cookbook. We decided to make the bunny themed meal, with sausage and cucumber tulips. It is a little hard to see below, but there is rice underneath, with cos lettuce 'grass,' grape 'rocks,' the tulips, bread bunnies and some field mushrooms. The Sweetheart actually said 'Thank you Mummy for my lovely bento dinner' (a manners achievement for sure) and I heard her talking to herself while eating 'this is the best dinner ever.' She ate a fair amount of it, then inexplicably put the box on the ground. When I turned around from sewing to see why the baby was being so quiet it was to a scene of bento leftover destruction: rice everywhere. Sigh. I swear I have to vacuum every day at the moment. Still, glad that the meal was appealing to both of them. I'll be remembering this.
For those concerned about the waste from the elaborate food prep: I had a 'bits' sandwich and the Poppet dealt with the rest!
