preschool lunch: mini-burrito bento

This turned out to be a pretty random assortment of food for my little miss.  I'm a bit of Old Mother Hubbard and the Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe this week. Not only do I have so many kids I don't know what to do, but my cupboards are bare. A grocery run is on the agenda.

burrito bento with melon puzzle piece :)

From top to bottom: a mini blueberry muffin, a little cup of almonds, a mini burrito of leftover chicken, rice and cheese, purple & green grapes with a piece of cantaloupe cut into a puzzle piece shape using The Lunch Punch on top.

Our autism awareness message today from my awesome friend Amy:

When autistic individuals do learn to speak, they often have difficulty with pronouns and will reverse "you" and "I." For example, an autistic child might say "you want milk" when she means "I want milk." They may require help in learning grammar that other people pick up naturally. This is Autism Awareness Month and ...this is me continuing to make you aware.

I could never tell your cupboards are bare - you got such variety there! I've been reading your blog for the past few weeks, and I love it, it's so positive, pretty and picture-filled! Your kids are really lucky to have such a caring mom.

I love the puzzle piece fruit! How clever.

Pronouns were a tough one for our son. He's almost 5 and although he dosen't always use them correctly, we are just glad he uses them.
