Nostalgia is a great thing and that's why I'm whacking up a linky list for the next 7 days for 'My First Blog Post'.
Remember when you ventured out and out yourself out in cyber space the first time, popped your blogging cherry?
I recall it only too well. I was mooching through old posts today and found my first ever blog post. First posts are often the vital 'introduction' to your blog, who you are and what you are about and yet they rarely get read.
So this week at some point why not have a 'day off ' blogging and re-post your virgin blog post for all to read, swing back here and link up - I'd love to take a peek at your 'first words' !

Disgusting Gastronomical Delights
"Mama - what's for tea?"
"Chicken wraps darling - with yummy grated cheese and peppers, totally nutritionally balanced for your growing bodys needs, made with love and effort for you and even though your father and I prefer spicy food we'll be eating this bland meal with you because we love to all eat together - it's special family time"
"YUCK! No mama I want chocolate spread!"
It's happened to the best of us, we've tried to make something a bit different for tea time, try a new recipe, something we are convinced that our little darlings will savour and gobble up double quick - after all it'll have all the things they love in -right ? Wrong ! Generally even if you put all their foodie faves on the plate in one mish-mash meal chances are they'll greet it with suspicion.
For example, only this morning I was thinking how I had had to put peas on Kittys plate for a month or so before she'd even try them. However she once stole an olive from my plate and now eats 10 a day every day without fail. Such is the joy of toddler feeding - there is no logic and it cannot be second guessed so my advice is just give up and go with it... Which got me thinking - for all the yummy things I have unsuccessfully tried to get the kids to taste there are an equal amount of disgusting things that I have caught my children munching on over the years...(and yes these are true things that I have caught my delightful brood eating )
Spiders, a snail, a block of cheese stolen from the fridge, a worm, grass, dirt, scabs and by far the worst of all was finding my son, sitting under the hedge in the back garden devouring a raw sausage that he had pilfered from the fridge.
A charming selection I'm sure you'll agree , but the thing that really freaks me out is that those are the things that I have found them eating ... imagine what they have managed to gobble up when I haven't been looking !
My boys have by far eaten more yucky things than the girls - what about you - what's the worst thing you have caught your child feasting on ?
