Mummy and Baby Bear Bento

I'm joining a Thanksgiving blog hop with my fellow Bento Bloggers and Friends for today. Instead of turkeys or pilgrims theme, the theme for the Thanksgiving hop is about what we are thankful for.

I made Mummy and baby bear bentos for this Thanksgiving hop because I am thankful for the opportunity to be a stay-at-home-mum. I've been one since the birth of IT, and that makes it almost 9 years, the longest job I've had, lol. I am very thankful for being able to look after and be with the boys all the time. I enjoy their company very much. Of course it's not all a bed of roses, I'm very busy on most days, since I'm the chauffeur, maid, chef, tutor, etc. And I'm almost screaming my head off at them every day. But their smiles, hugs, kisses, love and appreciation makes it all worthwhile. :)

Mummy and baby bears are made from short grained brown rice. Blanket around baby bear is a small slice of ham.

The box is also packed with curry meatballs, broccoli, grapes and strawberries.

Bento for me, love the colours in the box today. :)


Now, click on the graphic above and hop over to Rachel's Random and check out what she is thankful for. From there, keep hoping through all the blogs till you make you way back here again. :)
