The Ins and Outs

If you have children, you will probably know that at some point you become obsessed about what goes in and comes out of your child. It starts when they are first born, with different types of milk and their corresponding “end product”, colour, consistency, frequency. But it doesn’t stop there, it only gets worse. As the weaning starts, we become pre-occupied with everything that goes into the child’s mouth and comes out of the other end. A year ago I would have never thought I could have endless conversations with other mothers about poo, but we do it, every week. We compare, we ask, we wonder.
It seems to be one of the most fascinating things (not really, but we act like it is!). We observe the changes that correspond with the changes in food, and are forever reciting everything that might have been eating to make sure the nappy looks “right”.
The obsession is difficult to convey to someone who has never had a baby or looked after one for a longer period of time.

On a different note, Raptor has been introduced to tomatoes (a new favourite, along with chicken), mozarella, peas (for the fun of the chase), fish and porrigde (messy!). Tonight we had chicken, and a bit of cheese, and for desert I prepared some rusks with warm milk, grated apple and cinnamon, thinking that Raptor might enjoy it. He didn’t. It was too mushy, so I ended up eating all of it myself.
Bon Appetit!
