Yet another reason why I will never win "Mother of the Year"

Slacker mom? That’s me.

I’ve been seeking more foods that Goose can feed himself, yet which won’t choke him (since he still only has two teeth at nearly a year old). It’s been a challenge, partly because he seems to really dislike textures. The other day I fed him some of Monk’s mac and cheese and he gobbled it down. However, standard Easy Mac noodles are too slim and slippery for his little mitts to get a hold. Then I remembered something, from my early days of motherhood and blog reading.

That’s how I found myself searching for Julie’s “recipe” for lunchblock.

Oh, yes. I actually googled Charlie “lunch block”* to see just exactly how she used to make lunch block for Charlie. Because, you know, I probably couldn’t have figured that out for myself if I thought hard enough.

Although now that I think about it, which is worse: that I looked up a tutorial on how to mold and slice pasta and cheese, or that Julie wrote one?**

*I’m sure if Julie checks her stats she’ll have a sincere WTF?! moment when she sees that search.
**Nope, still me.

I fail to see how this is a bad thing. Perhaps this is why I don’t have a MOTY, either. Meh. I’ll live. ;)

Steph ~ Well, maybe it is a positive reflection on my near-endless recall of the category I like to call “stuff I’ve read somewhere.” Yeah, I’ll spin it like that…
