One of the dreams I had about having kids was us all sat around the table eating together and sharing stories of our day. It’s what I knew growing up and it’s how I envisaged parenthood too. Apparently, the Italians feel the same, and restaurant chain Prezzo have created the La Famiglia family sharing dish to embrace this way of dining together.
When Martha was 4 months old I wrote a post about when to wean, how to know when the time is right and my fears about weaning a baby whose gag reflex was so overactive that even a breastfeed could result in projectile vomiting if she took too big a gulp. Fast forward to Martha at nearly 11 months old and this girl simply loves her food! Here’s how months 6 to 10 went.
Last week, Martha and I hopped on the train (the one after the one we were meant to catch – ooops) and headed to London to spend the morning in the company of I Just Love It, Historic Newspapers and some lovely bloggers, for their Mother’s Day Blogger Brunch. We were treated to some amazing food, great company and delightful personalised gifts that I simply need to tell you about.
I was on my way to the gym this afternoon. The car radio was tuned to Radio 2 and Jeremy Vine was on. “So we want to know what programs us to like sweet food. Apparently we should blame the sugar that was in our mother’s breastmilk” Wait? Say what? Slow clap for the Radio 2 production team.
It appears that I’m a vegetarian. At least I think I am, it’s all very new to me and came rather unexpectedly if I’m honest. I just had my first vegetarian Christmas and am pondering the idea of trying Veganuary. I can’t imagine ever giving up cheese but then until recently I would have scoffed at the idea of giving up meat. What does it all mean to me?
