Well apparently mushrooms are more of an acquired taste than I thought! For me mushrooms are a food group. I should definitely note for the record, though, that I'm not a big crab fan. I generally don't like foods with such a high effort to edible quotient. But that dip is SO not crabby; in fact you'd hardly guess there was crab in there at all. Next time I make it in a bread bowl, I'll definitely post some additional photos of the final product.
Also, I didn't mean to jump straight from I USED TO BE FAT right into GO MAKE THIS FATTENING CRAB DIP. I swear I'm not that schizophrenic! I'm still working on my next few gastric bypass surgery installments and I promise to get to the part where I talk about how it's been five years and now I basically eat whatever I want and get to stay a size 14. Diets are evil. Hallelujah! Amen.
So yesterday Genoa walked up to me and said, "Mommy! I go pee-pee in a potty!" Her diaper was dry, so I shot out of my chair and helped her hover her tiny buns above the porcelain to no avail. It's scary up there for such an itty bitty girl! So I ordered her a couple of potty chairs. I learned my lesson with Alex and the constant scrubbing of all the stupid potty chair parts, so I got two: the Baby Bjorn for upstairs and this one for downstairs:
I can't wait till it gets here! We actually chose it together and I know she's going to love it. It's hard to believe she's already showing signs that she's ready to train (she holds it all night, warns me when she's going to go, immediately asks to be changed, etc.). I remember trying in vain to train Alex at this age when he was showing similar signs, though, so we'll see how it works out. Kids are ready when they're ready and there's really nothing I can do except recognize when the time is right. She's been telling me when she needs to go for months now, so I think I'd be remiss not to at least give it a shot.
