Today’s realization: “I am a L.O.E.M.”

Today’s realization: I am a L.O.E.M – A leftover-eating-machine. Our little toddling Ella tends to be rather picky these days when it comes to food likes and dislikes. Madame Banana might be a big hit today, and ‘shaken-her-head’ at tomorrow. Same with yoghurt, strawberry, cheese and all the tricks a mommy thinks to have up her sleeves. So, I have become Ella’s personal left-over-eating-machine (LOEM).

I started a conversation about this on the playground with a dad, also climbing stairs with his daughter. We were both chuckling at our insight. He then nodded and said: ‘I eat an insane amount of pizza these days.’

Ella, you want Pizza?
