1st Grade Bento #7 - Sushi and an excuse

Last night I thought I'd try my hand at some faux sushi!  It looked so good, that I made myself the same thing this morning!  I can't wait for lunch time!
Faux Sushi rolls (Bread, cream cheese, turkey, mozzerella, pickle and carrot)
Orange and Strawberry slices
Black Olives
and Chocolate Pudding with sprinkles
and then she remembered it was Pizza Day in the cafeteria, so this turned in to Dad's lunch! ;)
Shared as part of Whats For Lunch Wednesday!

Now for my "excuse" for not making a bento yesterday.  We got home on Monday and night with one fussy little Bubby.  He's had some pretty bad allergies for the last couple of weeks, and just been a little extra clingy.  I needed to get supper cooked and the dishes washed and Kylee was studying spelling words.  SO, for the first time ever, I sat him up on the counter beside me as I was doing dishes.  I know, I know.  WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!  Everything was going fine, until I turned to look at Kylee's spelling word progess and thats when it happened.  He took a nose dive off the counter, hitting the floor face first with his body going over backwards.  It looked HORRIBLE.  I picked him up and assessed him.  No blood, no broken bones.  We went to the couch and Kylee called Cody.  He immediately came home.  Clancy was just trying to go to sleep immediately after it happening with crying in between.  We decided we should take him to the ER to have him checked out.  We checked in and had a seat.  Clancy was still silent and sleepy (and hour later).  I dont think I can even begin to go into the service we received at this ER.  One word: PATHETIC.  About an hour and a half later, (still waiting) Clancy started talking and laughing and walking around.  So, 2 hours after we arrived, we got up and announced we were leaving.  Did they care? No. (BTW, I guarantee you it would have been atleast 2 more hours before we were seen.) Thats enough of that before I go into a rant.  Here are some pics...

Today again (its even uglier than the pics show)

Moral of the story, NEVER put your kids on the counter.  I know, DUH.  But sometimes we just do things, that later we would say DUH about.  I am so thankful God was watching over my precious little boy.

poor Clancy! i know what you mean about the one time you do something it ends up being bad. thats why I am always on clint about the bath tub, and counters, and everything else that seems "ok" to do until something happens. i think my job does it to me!! I see all the "what ifs" after they happen.

Oh my goodness, poor little Clancy. I am so glad he wasn't seriously hurt. :( You are probably still in shock from the accident too. Take care and give everyone lots of hugs.

Sushi looks delicious :D Poor little guy! I'm glad he's okay, and I hear you on doing things you know you shouldn't. Kidlet fell out of a grocery cart when he was little because he was standing up..oops!
