World Cuisine

Friday we were tired, uninspired and didn't want to make dinner. It was 5pm and Baba was already fussy and ready to start thinking about bed. No one was in a good mood. Mommy and Daddy, in what appeared to be a complete lapse in logic, decided to go out to dinner as a family. Our favorite Sushi restaurant is two blocks away so we figured if there was a melt down we could just grab dinner to go. In a surprising turn of events we had the most wonderful family dinner ever, actually it was our first family dinner ever (Aiden is only eating solids for breakfast and lunch these days). There's something about having dinner together that really gives you that we're-a-family feeling.

I actually feel emotional about it, he was such a big boy. He did a lot of people watching and was very curious about the other kids he saw. We fed him with chopsticks, a first. He acted like it was the most natural thing in the world. When he wanted food, he turned to look at us instead of using his pterodactyl call which is an at-home favorite. It was the first time he had non-mommy prepared food and he loved it. One the menu: those little tofu cubes in the miso soup, tamago (egg and rice sushi) and, here's the real shocker, AVOCADO. I swear, it really happened.

Here's a totally unrelated picture of Baba finger-painting with oatmeal.
