This was my first stab at making Sage's bento box lunch.

For the chip part I put three of the honey butter crackers underneath the lid so that they would lay flat and not get broken, but not until I was putting in the ice packs - didn't want them to get stale in the fridge. Dessert was the 2 mini blueberry muffins, and the egg was the one in the fish mold. She wanted tuna, hence the fish.

So what do you think, arie? Does it pass muster?

Hehe. Nice. I'm sure she'll love it.

Awesome - I was hoping so!

Does she always eat bento box lunches? Why is this kid so much cooler than me?! LOL!

Also, I've thought about it, and I really think that you should have a kid--the world would be better for the contribution a child of yours would provide. That, or keep being so involved in your friends' (family's) kids' lives--you're obviously an excellent influence :)

Yeah, I usually make her bento boxes for lunch. Awhile back I posted some pictures at http://arie.vox.com/library/posts/tags/bento/. Then I got tired of taking pictures of food.

Brad's really awesome with kids. Sage loves him.

Dude, that's so cool!!! I read an ethnography on bento boxes and culture in Japan, the title escapes me, but it's fascinating. I'm sure Sage is very intelligent, maybe you could discuss it with her? It was really a great way to learn about Japanese culture, and if she's already eating bento boxes, it might give her some cool context (assuming she doesn't have it already).

I love you too, sweetheart.

We decided about a couple of years ago we wouldn't have our own children because the children in our lives already need to be able to depend on us as much as they always have, and if we had our own they would not get the best of us they are accustomed to. Another factor is that I made a vow with myself that 32 would be my own personal cut off age for having children, and that was 5 years ago.

You're awfully sweet to say that and I really appreciate it!

While I understand your decision, I stand by my assertion that the world would be better for you two having kids. However, I'm glad that your reasoning included being involved in many kids' lives. Actually, if you affect all of the children you interact with positively, your effect could be even greater in magnitude! Thanks for being awesome. :D

I know my kid would be awesome and not just because of me but because of all those constantly around me to add their own secret spices to the mix.

You are a doll, Laura!

You make a good Uncle.

I once made the joke that being a good uncle IS in fact for sissies - my nephew almost had a seizure he laughed so hard, then said "It's funny 'cause it's true!"
