Can't you just taste the yumminess?
When William was a baby, he ate a lot more "normal" things, but I still made some of the same baby foods for him that I made for Drew. I didn't do it very often, but I did do it. I made a hot breakfast for both kids every single morning and made sure if William was going to carry something around the house to nibble on it was something homemade and nutritious. His first chocolate was his cupcake at his first birthday party.
When Lauren was a baby, I made sure she was fed. Somehow. She learned very early to eat by herself and by 15 months was out of her highchair completely. She sat (sits) at the counter for breakfast with the big kids and sits at the table for all other meals with the rest of us. She, like William, would walk around nibbling on something only it was often a toasted frozen waffle (gasp!) or a granola bar. I would look at her with chocolate on her mouth from her chocolate chip granola bar at 7:30am and think that she would have been the kid I'd use as an example as I would rant on about unfit parents. SHE became that kid. I became that mom. Sad, but true. Her first chocolate was... not at her first birthday party.
Then today. Today we hit a new low.
Can you see the shame in her eyes? Even she knows how terrible this is.
