Aaaand Relax…..

January 19, 2009

BN cooked a fab Sunday roast yesterday.

It was great to sit down and enjoy a meal as a family now, no feeding requirements ….of any consequence, no histrionics, tantrums or strops. And the girls were fine too!


I stopped and stared at one point as Rowan shovelled(sp?) a massive mouthful of gravy and chicken in her mouth.

BN and I gawped at each other… the parents of a little girl who has practically never eaten much of any substance in one go.

Always looking for ways to get out of meal times, trying to say she was full or that she wasn’t hungry or she didn’t like it.

The girl who lost 7lbs last Christmas time – after three weeks of continuous daily vomiting with ear infection after infection after infection.

4th Ear Infection since 16th December.

Finally it appears as though she has left this behind her… and it’s really good you know?

I know she wasn’t life threateningly ill, or hospitalised or anything that seemed incredibly serious.

But to me… it’s like suddenly getting the chance to exhale ever so slowly and just realise that this is my big girl… and she’s all OK.

And that’s good.

    My littlest one is a fussiest eater — I find I just love it when he eats a full meal rather thank picking at it! Happens about twice a week at best though.
