This Year’s Halloween Costume


Ah to be seven and to have a limitless imagination! This year, my silliest kiddo, my eldest, has decided that she would be (among all the princesses and kitties) a washing machine for Halloween. Yep. A washing machine. It was a wonderful choice and I made her costume from a box and a lot of tape (among other things). But for lunch I made her this silly thing. It’s not my  most impressive lunch but it was a fun inside joke, as her school friends haven’t seen her costume yet. She giggled at the sight of it in the morning and I hope she had another giggle at lunch.

Main PB&J (double stacked) washing machine 🙂 I made a small hole in the middle and used the round bread for the head. Crust for hair, a little bit of nori for her smile and candy eyes. Inside the washing machine, the “laundry” made of non-pareils.
Sides Green grapes and cantaloupe, as well as a mandarin
Included but not Pictured Yogurt

For this lunch I used:

A Sushi Chef & Baby Ebi Sushi



I didn’t think about posting this because I just made it for Halloween but then a friend mentioned that I should put it up because some other babywearers could get ideas from it 🙂 So here is my costume for this year. I was a sushi chef and I covered a mei tai in white felt and stuck a giant shrimp on it and so my littlest kiddo became an ebi roll. It was great for a costume for him because he was just in a onesie and some (sushi print) pants and when he got tired, hot, or antsy of being in the carrier, I just took him out quickly and let him do his thing. Then when he was sleepy or hungry, back up he went 🙂

A Costumed Kitty


Today, a simple masked kitty checking out some pumpkins. I put a little less food in today because the kiddo is having a hard time finishing lunch lately. Lots of talking at the lunch table, not so much eating 😉

In today’s lunch:

Main PB&J on wheat; the mask was made with strawberry fruit leather.
Sides Green grapes, a mandarin “pumpkin” (fruit leather features), and a Trader Joe’s Joe Joe
Also included (but not pictured) Yogurt
