Mother's Day Off! A lunch for John BY John!

I typically make John's lunches a day ahead of time but since today is Mother's Day I got the day off from making his Monday lunch and he did it (almost) all by himself!

I was thinking he would want to just grab some Slim Jims or Turkey sticks, but nope! 
He wanted to make his own sandwich and picked out salami and cheese with mayo.

He picked out an apple cookie cutter from the cabinet and cut through almost all of it on his own (salami's a little tough with a plastic cutter so I helped finish that part off).

He picked out Pizza Goldfish and fruit snacks...

He even took a picture of it with his iPod Touch since you can't make a lunch without a picture :)

With an apple and a pouch of Capri Sun Apple Super V, I think he did a great job making his apple-themed lunch!

I'm not the only Bento Blogger & Friends mom getting the day off! 
Some are getting lunches made for them. 
Some are getting their kids to make their own lunches like John.

  10. Haha. My daughter is so used to my blogging now, she'll say "Can I eat that now. Did you take a picture? Quick, take a picture so I can eat my beautiful lunch!" Even if I'm not done yet. She thinks that taking the picture magically makes it finished!
    You tell him he made a very healthy-looking lunch!
