In the still of the night...





















I had to leave home extremely early this morning made this at 3am while studying for a mid term. I hope the Little Goose likes it, I tried to pack some of her favorite things like fruit and broccoli (yes, I'm very lucky, I know). I'm beginning to like this whole packing lunch thing. So far so good on keeping it relatively healthy. Aside from steamed broccoli, I put in orange slices, berries, homemade tortilla chips, a few panda cookies, some mini sausages, steamed carrots, and some mini cheese quesadillas. It took only about 20 minutes to put together from start to finish (including cooking time). Not bad, maybe I should pack a lunch too...nah...I think I like eating out with my coworkers for lunch. Adult company keeps me sane. If I packed myself a lunch I'd end up eating at my desk and working.

Again, I left home really early this morning and wasn't able to say goodbye to my little Sweet Pea. He was sleeping so peacefully that this was the only picture I could take of him this morning. He's always liked sleeping on his tummy and it used to freak me out when he was a baby and everyone and their mother said that I needed to put him "back to sleep" in case of SIDS or some other nefarious childhood phantom that might take his breath away in the middle of the night. Now that he's 18 months, it's not so nerve wracking to see him roll over to his tummy at night. In fact it's rather cute with his butt sticking in the air.

Hi this is Michelle (la dra from DISL). You have inspired me. My hubby told me to come over here and check you out. I just called him to tell him we're going to J town next time we're in LA. He's going to post soon and he's supposed to email you back-- our little Pumpkin is starting preschool and we now have to think about lunch. Thanks for the ideas!

Hey Michelle! Thanks for dropping by and tell DISL he doesn't have to rush on emailing back, I think I gleaned a lot from his last post. I'm surprised they don't provide lunch at the preschool, but yeah, the bento stuff is really fun and not too much work at all.

Hi Carol! :WAVE: Thanks! =)
