Wednesday, 2/8/12 - We had planned to go to a Valentines craft playdate this morning, but due to an unplanned trip to the ER the night before (after I had already packed up the lunches!) we skipped it. Lunch was still enjoyed on the way to preschool though. And the way home. We skipped swim class too, since we were instructed to keep the stitches dry for 24 hours. Yup. Stitches. Yay.
Luv U bento

I hadn't gotten to her sandwich while packing lunches when Baby E woke up and needed to be fed. While feeding her, "the incident" happened, and I was trapped with a baby hanging off my boob while Daddy took Z to the Emergency Room. So even though we didn't technically need packed lunches the next day, I finished her lunch off the next morning and she got to eat it in the car. As a treat,I opted for a Biscoff spread sandwich, since it tastes like cookies. I squeezed in a slice of ham on a skewer to give her more protein to make up for the lack of PB.
She had chosen a package of cheese shreds as we passed through the cheese aisle during our grocery store trip a few days before. While these shreds are thinner than I'd normally shred for her, it was literally no effort, since I didn't have to make them. And no grater to wash after! So I filled 'er up!
I had planned on adding a cute Valentines disposable pick for the berries, but totally forgot. Good thing I ended up tossing in that ham on a pick!
She ate the cheese shreds, ham, and a few candy hearts before school, and had two more refills of cheese plus the green beans, the rest of the candies, and the berries after school. I ended up eating the sandwich.
