Wasabi Baby

Henry was in a funny mood at dinner last night. We went out for dinner at a Japanese restaurant, but Henry started to get squirmy as soon as we ordered. He quickly escalated to cranky so we changed our order to take-out. We were not sure whether he would make it all the way through dinner at home. 

When we sat down, Henry immediately pulled off his bib and then got to work dissecting the cucumber rolls. He also enjoyed slurping miso soup. He did not care for the teriyaki pork strips, which was surprising since he usually goes for the meat first.
Henry devours a cucumber roll.
A little wasabi accidentally mixed in with his portion of sticky rice and he seemed to enjoy it much more than plain rice. Usually I tone down the spice for him, but apparently he wanted a little more flavor.
Henry squealed with delight for the wasabi rice.
Toward the end of our meal he went a little crazy with the Chinese soup spoon and we captured some of his silliness on video.
After dinner, we put him in the bath to rinse off the rice. Then he crashed for the night and slept very well.

Ready for Kindergarten

It's back to school season and Henry starts kindergarten on Monday!
It should be an easy transition for him since Henry will be in the same classroom with the same teacher as his preschool year. For the past three weeks, he has been lamenting that school is better than summer break and he wants to see all his friends again. His goal for the year is to learn to read so he can devour Pokemon cards and comic books. I love that he is excited to be back at school. 

The format and frequency of this blog will be changing this year. Henry has asked that I not take daily photos of his lunches. He says that he would still like to share pictures of his favorite lunches on occasion. I also plan to write a few product reviews of lunchboxes and water bottles. 

Our family is in the process of moving to a new house this month as well, so my focus is on getting us settled into the new space. As a result, I won't be writing much on the blog in September but hope to post at least once per month sta…

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
