Cutie Monkey Bean Yumbox

Sprout's nickname is only one of an assortment of nicknames, all stemming from her very first, given to her in utero, by Sailor Boy :) Not long after suggesting Sydney for her first name, he commented that in her ultrasound photo she looked like a little kidney bean... then suggested we use bean for her middle name - he thought Sydney Bean would be adorable! I agreed it would be adorable to us, but perhaps not so much to her, one day. We did settle on a lovely middle name, but she also became Daddy's Little Sydney Bean. And as she grew, so did his list of nicknames for her: Sydney Bean Sprout, Bean Sprout, Sprout, Monkey Bean, & Cutie Monkey Bean.

So I always think of her when I see cute monkey things. Like the funny little monkey face forked bento pick I put in her Yumbox today:

Sprout aka Cutie Monkey Bean's Purple Yumbox contains:
  • Strawberries - finally, the grocery store had some nice-looking ripe ones - it must be Spring somewhere!
  • Green grapes, also nicer than any I've found in weeks :)
  • Annie's Homegrown Bernie's Farm cheddar crackers
  • Mozzarella string cheese with heart fork picks
  • Grape gelatin made with real juice
  • & a Hi-Chew candy treat, with the monkey pick stuck in it 
I also included a Light My Fire spork, but it doesn't fit in her Yumbox. Her Yumbox fits in her Thirty-One Chillicious lunch box though, with room for the spork, an ice pack, & her drink :)
