Tomorrow is a big day of parties. We start off in the morning with a joint first birthday party for all the babies in our straight mothers’ group. I very nicely volunteered Lazyboo to make a birthday cake for them all (cos I think she’s a great cook!) and this is what she come up with:
The other mothers were joking that they didn’t want much, just something nicely shaped with all the babies’ names on, so that’s what she did even if they didn’t really expect it. I think it looks awesome, even if Lazyboo all hyper critical of herself.
In the afternoon, we’re going to our queer parents group early xmas party and I decided it must be my turn to cater. So I made some cornflake chocolate chip cookies:
I’m also making some marinated chicken and a fruit platter tomorrow.
All of the food is obviously gluten free and dairy free to cater to our family of dietary misfits. And we may just have another little member of that group. McBean has been having some digestive issues lately, and we’ve been to the doctor who wants us to take him back off dairy for a while to see if that improves things while we wait for an appointment with a paediatric gastroenterologist. I was not happy when he went off on a rant how we don’t need to be scared of eliminating dairy, it’s not that hard. As if we didn’t already know that and frankly, sometimes it is very hard, especially for a kid. I was so hoping that this was something that McBean wouldn’t have to deal with. We’ve already switched his bottles (I have another blog in mind about that) and cups to soy – he doesn’t seem at all bothered by the change and it’s too soon to tell if it’s making a difference. I guess time will tell.
