His little face when LRUN walked through the door early on Friday night was just precious. In fact, LRUN's face was pretty special too. They have missed each other. Alot. They spend lots of cherished time together over the weekend, which includes a solo parent swimming experience. We have friends over for Sunday lunch and although he sleeps through most of it, he does make a grand appearance 2 hours in and has the time of his life playing with his new friends. Our house is filled with toddlers, toys and friends and I couldn't be happier.
Food and milk are still a major issue and I would be lying if I said it was a breeze. It's tough. Really tough. And his constant demands for milk and food are hard to manage. Saying that, I am blessed that it is this end of the scale rather than him not eating at all. I honestly think that would be harder and judging by the endless programs on C-beebies trying to get kids to enjoy food is proof that the majority of parents out there struggle to get their kids to enjoy food. Parents of the fussy eaters, I salute you. But from my point of view, when you're trying.... in desperation...to distract a grumpy, hungry toddler with tv and they are all making and eating muffins, this in itself is a whole 'nother challenge. But you know what, it's early days. I have to persevere. I am the worlds worst comfort eater. Had a bad day, feeling a bit sad, I am the first to reach for cake, sausages and wine. How ironic that I should have a little boy in my life with similar issues.
- mummy in the baking
- This blog is about me and my voyage to becoming a mummy. Ironically called “mummy in the baking” as together with my passion and obsession for all things cake related, I will never be able to have my own "bun in the oven." Years of fertility treatment have taken their toll and I now find myself on a new..eek, i hate this word...journey! The crazy train to adoption. I hope you will join me while I bake my way to becoming a mummy. I want this blog to be a source of information as well as a comforter. I hope it will inspire and help anyone who is considering adoption or who has in fact already bought their ticket for this..here I go again...journey. Cake makes me happy and I hope you will enjoy sharing my love of it. I want it to help lift your spirits and hearts through what can only be described as 'the trials and tribulations of the adoption process.' Along with my desire to be a family, I love my dogs, have an unhealthy love of sausages and chenin blanc, adore my land rover uber-nerd of a husband and continiously dream of balmy summer evenings. Baking in progress…..
