Find me on Pinterest

When I'm not dealing with the realities of being a new mum (I witnessed my bub's first meatball tan during dinner tonight and, subsequently, my first bath grease ring from cleaning her up. I have a feeling Jif will be my new best friend and I should start purchasing bulk packs) I am usually blogging, reading, watching Once Upon a Time or Downton Abbey or attending to my inescapable addiction to social media. Namely Facebook and Pinterest.

So the big news of today is that you can follow me on Pinterest:

The First Foods Fiasco

I love food. A lot. And I don't always like 'good' or gourmet food. I just like food. My relationship with food isn't an unhealthy one. (My health is suffering more due to my relationship with exercise. We're not really getting along.) I don't binge anymore than most fertile women who experience monthly emotional upheavals or slightly worn out stay-at-home mums who grab the easiest thing between sleep times and are starving by ten pm. But I do very much like to eat. If you have read Eat Pray Love (I haven't seen the movie) I now crazily desire to return to Italy with a pants size up packed in my suitcase. I think you get the picture. I'm an eater.

So when my daughter was not gulping down enormous amounts of blitzed pumpkin the moment I placed the spoon before her lips, I was stumped.

I thought it was awesome:
