Baby's first sushi

I'm supposed to be upstairs, helping Derek pack for his business trip tomorrow. His business trip to SEATTLE (one of my favorite places) on our anniversary. I think if he had more than 3 days notice and I wasn't so sassy, he may have taken me.

So we ended up going out to dinner tonight since I will be all alone (but let's not forget that, after having a child, I will NEVER REALLY BE ALONE AGAIN) for our anniversary. Did I mention Derek is going away and leaving me? Alone, with this child. The shrieking madman? Anyway, we decided to go for sushi.

There we were, giving E his first Tuna Sashimi. It was at that moment that I was so proud. My little Boo Boo Kitty, eating sushi like a big boy. Except he kept throwing his chopsticks on the floor and trying to drink Derek's beer. Come to think of it, that makes him a boy.

For all those about to get up in arms about the mercury dangers of infants eating tuna, let me just say that I don't care. I know I'm horrible.

Now I have to go iron a shirt. Renee, keep your mouth shut!

Happy Anniversary, Love Seattle and Sushi! E will be a well rounded kid! PS: We all ate tuna and we're okay! Everything in moderation.

My theory is let them eat. Pretty much whatever they want save for their own feces or feces from the neighbor's dog. Other than that... unless it causes hives (pistachios) or a traumatic life experience (my son once sucked in a cherry), then let them have it. My SIL kids eat all kinds of generally to be thought icky stuff. I even let mine have a sip of my coffee. Bad mom! Bad mom!

My kids are going to be totally deprived - just like I was. They're going to think mustard is exotic.

Got Mercury? You could calculate just how much mercury was in that sushi by going to GotMercury.Org.

Maybe you'll change your mind about not worrying about mercury from sushi!
