As usual, I turned to food. It seemed far more reasonable than going all Edward Cullen on her and standing over her to make sure she sleeps. (someday I will treat you all to my full anti-Twilight rant... but today is not that day) And there's not a darn thing I can help her with relating to her class work, not if I want to help her pass. BUT, she loves Japanese food perhaps even more than I do, so making her a bento was a no-brainer. And I swear, one day soon I'll get a real camera.

Potentially Not Obvious How To Elements:
- Onigiri (rice balls): The method I used is from Just Bento, but I didn't put any filling in them. I wasn't sure how long she'd have to carry it around in her backpack, so I figured just rice was good. I decorated them with seaweed and black sesame seeds.
- Avocado: Sprinkled with lemon juice and a tiny bit of salt and wrapped it in plastic wrap to keep it from going brown too fast.
