Look what we have here… Fien has got her glasses now! She is soooo proud to have them! When we went to the shop last week to seek for a nice pair of glasses, she had deffenetly her own taste… Lucky for mommy that I liked them too and daddy liked them also!
As we where finished, we went out of the store and she stoped:”Where are my glasses now???”I had to tell her that we have to wait aboout 1 week and then we can pick them up… She talked about her glasses all week and today was her moment to get them!!! She put the pink ones on and kept them on!!! Just see taht little face….

I couldn’t update my blog because of that! But, here I am again.

A heavy last week


Last week was heavy. Emma was sick, she had a dubble otitis. She had a very high fever from saturday until thursday.Thursday we had the funaral of my hubby’s grandpa. For the kids it was the first time they experienced this. It was so good and they where so brave!!! we are thankfull for all hose people who where there! It was a heavy day!

At friday fever went down and faded away…
I thought she could go to school one day My husbands grandfather is burried and the kids went also to the funeral. It was the first time for them to that week, but it was not an option. i made the bento’s for the kids and also hers. She was laying on the couch and I asked her what she would eat. She asked me if she had a bento too… And mommy made hr one!! She was smiling and enjoing the food of her bento..

the picture below is the bento I made; wraprolls with luncheonmeat and creamchese, star liver sausage, star cucomber. cherry tomatoes, a little pig made from bread and cocos cheese, bread squares withcolored sprinkels,oreo’s and snack crackers.

A few weeks ago I was reading an artikel at the blog tea rose home about bento’s. I did not know what bento’s where,but had to find it out for myself…Sachiko told her stry about bento’s in her yought, but that is not what my kids would eat at school…
It fasinated me so much after googeling out for bento’s… What effort people took to make those beautiful bento’s!!!! but how could I make bento’s with real dutch food…
I found the blog of bentobabe
That’s what I was looking for a good blog with good dutch inspired food for my kids bento’s! Some tips and idea’s I used to create the first bento’s and… WITH GREAT SUCCES!!!! The kids loved it. So much fun to hear those happy stories and see the faces that said:”yummie mommie, when do we get a next bento???”
Now I wanna show you the result of my bento’s. Tomorrow they will get a bento to school all 3! After xmas leave from school a nice filled bentobox( I use their bread boxes that we bought in legoland! They are great because tey are deep!)
