Okay, so life hasn’t handed me many lemons recently. I have a super new job that interests me and is populated by people whom I like and respect, an incredible supermum of an other half who manages to keep our household running whilst I’m away most of the week, those incredible children and my fantastic little dog. But I’ve been spending less time at home of recent, and feeling a bit disconnected from it all. It’s not a nice feeling and so I have resolved to spend the weekends really making the most of my family and building new memories to treasure during the working week when I often don’t see my little ones awake for days at a time.
This is a bit of a silly one but recently I came across these pictures of babies tasting lemons for the first time. It made me wonder what our own little ones would do.
It’s not like they haven’t tried lemon – I make a fantastic chickpea and cauliflower lemon pasta – but they’ve certainly never chomped down on a slice on its own before. At snack time I gave them a plate of sliced lemons to taste and the results were hilarious. Naturally, I had to document the experience.
Have you ever given your baby a lemon to try? Have I finally cemented my lifetime membership at the Bad Mothers Club?! They didn’t seem to mind it much..!
