Getting ready for a Bento Box Birthday Bash

Rapunzel's bday Logo

It’s the day before Rapunzel’s eleventh birthday party and I’m sitting here un-showered in my pajamas (at 10-something in the morning) designing a bento box cover. Why? Because I want to! Because it’s fun and chasing after my kid who’s out in my mom’s backyard in her underpants and NO SHOES is not fun. Did I mention that my mom’s backyard is full of hidden sharp things and bull thorns?

Sigh. What is it with kids and not keeping their shoes on? Or clothes for that matter? Why did I sign up for this motherhood thing again? It’s so hard to concentrate on designing something cool when you have to be constantly interrupted with all this mothering I need to do. Sheesh! Just kidding! If it wasn’t for these kids running all over the place I wouldn’t have any reason to design cool stuff.

But anyway, it’s totally the last minute and we (my mom, CC, Bethany and I) are really getting excited about Rapunzel’s Asian-themed birthday party. Last minute is so crazy and yet so fun! Don’t you wish you could be in my family? Dishes smishes. We have a party to plan for!

The party is a mish mash of everything we like that is Asian all smashed together in ways that will probably offend anyone who is really Asian. And for that I apologize but Rapunzel’s eleven and it’s fun so you’ll have to just look the other way. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go hit play so Bug can watch “Little Mermaid” for the fifty-seventh time and I can go take a shower or print something or other.

Stay tuned for more craziness!
