Bobbing my head for Bobbique

I've been trying to blog about situations and circumstances that interest me the most. Going out to eat and then  discussing my dishes with others is an example of something that provides great interest. I've  recently expanded that discussion online. I now blog about it....more

apple music

While I was contemplating whether a wrinkled cantaloupe was worth ninety-nine cents, my autistic six-year-old son was pressing a full-price Fuji apple to his lips. A sound that might have been “nom nom” prompted me to turn around....more

Toddler Eats

I've realized that it has been a hot minute since I addressed baby led weaning and how we are feed Mallory. In all reality, not too much has changed since that original post other than we are fresh out of breast milk.
