The morning started normally, and I prepared a bento for my daughter, woke her up, and got her dressed in the kindergarten uniform for another exciting day. We all sat at the breakfast table and started eating, but our poor girl had absolutely no appetite. Usually she is a vigorous eater especially in the morning, but she refused to touch anything, even her glass of warm milk.
This is very rare for her, and despite her protest (she loves her kindergarten and insisted on going without eating anything) I called the school and notified them about her absence. My gut feeling told me to keep her at home…. and I was right.
It turned out that she had gotten some minor tummy bug, and didn’t eat almost anything for the entire day, of course including my bento. It ended up to be my lunch, so at least it wasn’t wasted. Ha, the joy of motherhood!
