Sharing the experience of being a parent, a foreigner, a life-long learner.
☆Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.☆
♡若者を歩むべき道の初めに教育せよ。年老いてもそこからそれることがないであろう。♡ Proverbs 22:6
When you look up "bento" or "obento" online the results often look amazing. Many times the ones you'll see take a lot of time and effort to preare. We are a month into making daily bento lunches and in the 3rd year of making them at least a couple of times a week.
To make preparation easier on us we make some things ahead of time, use fresh cut foods and stick to simple arrangements for everyday lunches.
This is Zilla's bento on three average days. He likes tomatoes, cucumbers, and sausages the most so they often are included. Some days Zilla asks to make his bento so we try to accommodate that too.
We've been busy getting Zilla into his new school routine which often has left Mega craving attention. She truly misses playing with him before/after school. I've been trying to be more intentional about setting aside time to play following her lead. Today she decided we'd build. There are so many lessons that can be learned from a morning spent playing with Legos. Fine motor skills, creativity, math skills... It is a classic activity for a reason!
