AN ECLAIR FOR MY BONBON

Posted on: Monday






We picked up some pastries in the West Village the other day to bring home for treat, only to realize on our way back that 95 degree weather and french chocolate cream may not get along too well with one another.  So instead of arriving home with a pretty white box tied up with red string & full of melty french pastry goo, we decided to spoil our dinner and eat them right then and there, on a stoop on Grove street.  Since Gaby and I couldn't possibly devour all the sweets alone, Biet chipped in.   She met her very first eclair at first with a bit of trepidation, but one bite in and she was an eager pastry enthusiast.  Afterwards she washed it down with a generous helping of her very favorite beverage (especially on hot summer days), breast milk.  And then we were on our way.  And although it ruined our appetites and gave Biet a sugar high like a firecracker, I'm so happy that we indulged in our little sidewalk sugar picnic.  Because these little moments, they're what life's all about.. right?

  2. Sometimes you just have to have dessert before supper and on days where the temperature is out of control, well, those are the best days for it.

    1. I wholeheartedly agree. Its also quite appropriate on very cold days, birthdays, and sundays, in my opinion. Dessert is my weakness :)

  3. It's essential to spoil one's appetite at least 3 times per summer! Happy 4th to you!

    1. The patriotic outfit was a complete accident! I actually almost changed as we left the house because Gaby told me "I like that you dressed like Super Girl today." what?? Oh, boys!

  5. Such lovely photos! Biet will remember these memories for sure. I don't know how to say it without sounding completely creepy but the last photo is just beautiful -- thanks for nursing in public! You pave the way for the rest of us breastfeeding mummies.

    1. Not creepy AT ALL. I hope to make at least one passing woman more comfortable about nursing in public when I sit outside and let Biet go to town. Its amazing how my usual modesty completely disappears when it comes to nourishing my child. God bless all of the nursing Mama's out there, doing it wherever they need to.

    1. You don't sound at all like a wierdo! At first, as a brand new Mom, I was nervous about nursing and would always cover up. I've grown to be much more comfortable with it though, and don't think twice now about latching Biet on when she is hungry, covered or not. Honestly, most people don't even look twice. And if anyone ever says anything about it, I simply remind them that they used to do this with their Mama too when they were a baby. Or I'll simply say, "would you rather I let my baby go hungry? How would you feel if you were hungry and none of these restaurants would feed you??" (in NYC, which is peppered with restaurants). That usually quiets people down.

  8. I just found your blog and I have been reading through the archives. I am having a great time reading you wonderful posts.

    I love that you posted a pic of you nursing your precious daughter, out in public no less. With my first (who is now a precocious 2.5 year old - and still nurses by the way) I would cover up every single exposed spot of flesh I could fine even if that meant using 4 covers. Now, with my second (he's almost 8 months), I don't think twice about nursing wherever and whenever with no cover. I think more moms should embrace that it is a completely natural thing to do and be comfortable with it. Good for you momma! :)
