Sadie's Top 10 Favorite Foods

Dear Mrs. Mary M. and Miss Kimberly M. and Mr. Joe M.,

One day, in the not so distant future, I will be forced to go to the hospital to have a baby. The reason why I use the word 'forced' is because I would much rather visit a birthing center and then return home to recover. However, no one in this family seems to think that is safe or wise, and therefore I choose the word 'forced'.

When that day comes I need you to be prepared to house and love my child for a few days. She is a sensitive soul who thrives in her routines and her mother's affection. Since she will be without her mother's affection as they hold me hostage in the hospital (interesting how similar those two words are spelled, no?) I hope her routines can stay as normal as possible.

Also, since oftentimes unforseen circumstances may lead to a newborn's extended hospitalization (jaundice, risk of infection, small size, etc.) this will hopefully be of help to you in that unexpected situation.

Therefore, I will be recording pertinent information regarding our little one here, on this silly blog, in an effort to make the transition as comfortable as possible for Miss Sadie.

This week's lesson deals with food. A favorite topic of us all :)

Sadie's Top 10 Favorite Foods:

(Half of the can of peaches for breakfast and half for lunch)

(Any brand of yogurt will be fine)

(Please be sure to rinse the grapes extra well as they are a highly pesticided food)

(Beware: she can eat a whole quart of strawberries in one sitting)
(Use cheese sparingly as it may cause stomach problems)

(Ice cream intake should not exceed one scoop every two days.)

Please, be sure to have these foods on hand during late May and most of June. She has a very healthy appetite!

Thank you for your time and attention,

Sadie's grateful Mom

Did you take that picture of the cheese? You are getting good with that camera. I like the fishy portrait.

I'm hungry.

Alicia said...

Aye! Those are the ONLY two pictures I DID NOT take, actually. Funny they are the two you were impressed by! Apparently I'm not getting good with the camera since it's not my pictures that stand out :(

Joe said...

I liked all of them but those two and the grapes were the ones that stood out the most.

Pssh... all your pictures are awesome. I especially liked the yogurt one.

I am sorry that you have experienced such opposition to a birthing center :(

Did she learn the 5 grain cherrios from me? dad

Kimmy said...

I have taken note. I will make sure your child is nourished, loved, and happy. The end.
