I started watching it one afternoon, while the girls watched something fluffy and cartoon-y on Netflix on their computer. Z thought the first few episodes were too scary, and banned me from watching "that show." Even if she wasn't in the room, if she heard the music, she'd come running in and tell me to turn it off. So I'd sneak in an episode or two every night.
Eventually I was able to watch it during the day again (because, quite frankly, some of the episodes were too fricken scary to watch alone at night!) By then we were at Ten, and both girls were HOOKED! You could have had unicorns prancing around the room farting rainbows and they wouldn't even have noticed. They'd fight over my lap and ensure I couldn't get anything useful done while they watched my show.
So no thanks to the crappy bento-hating gluten-free bread, I attempted to make Doctor Who lunches!
Peanut-Butter and TARDIS Sandwich
|GF PBJ, organic sugar snap peas and cherries, GF garlic pretzels|
Quick and easy. Well, except for the bread being a jerk. And tiny.
Little E's "Fish Fingers"
|GF PBJ, organic raspberries and sugar snap peas, GF garlic pretzels|
Really I just grabbed a silicone fish muffin cup out of my cup drawer as a quick and easy way to fancy up E's lunch. But we'll pretend it was part of a master plan to tie it into Big Sister's Doctor Who theme. The sandwiches are kind of cut into fingers, yeah? Get it? Fish. Fingers!
Or if you prefer, the Christmas Carol episode had flying fish. Either way, it's a tenuous link at best. Good enough!
