For anyone with a tube-fed baby…
Before I go to bed tonight, I have something I just HAVE to share with you…
And it’s NOT that Ikea has actually injured me (another story for another post) making it almost impossible for me to sit down for any length of time…
Or that my husband was impatient with me taking photos of our freshly-cooked barbecue baby octopus before I ate it… in turn making me forget to fix the white balance on my camera, leaving these shots all weird and yellow…
I had to post this up FOR ALL THOSE PARENTS OUT THERE WITH TUBE-FED babies…
So they know that it IS possible,
even after having your baby REFUSE to eat for months and months on end,
and submits to having tubes down their noses,
and even straight in through their tummies,
that WHEN they learn to FINALLY eat properly,
through their MOUTHS,
they might grow confident enough to try new foods one day,
they could TOTALLY end up like our Dash…
now nine years old,
(including raw oysters – didn’t love ‘em but he TRIED them!)
And has nagged us for three weeks for barbecued baby octopus.*
Which he tried about six months ago and fell in love with.
He ate a dozen. And was looking for MORE.
May the wonder of this miracle never cease to give me joy.
* Totally delicious and totally easy to cook. Might share the recipe soon!
