Off to Nana's house
There's this story in our family about how my older sister tasted her first solids.
A sweet little babe of a few weeks old was given rum and rasin ice cream by her adoring Nana as a disapproving daughter-in law looked on.
So, when visiting my nana with my own sweet babe and hearing her almost five month self offered cake, I was more than a little concerned.
A pinky finger of sweetened, whipped cream was offered and then thrust into her untainted mouth. She licked her lips, smiled and tasted with joy.
Another pinky was offered but a disapproving granddaughter was at the ready to block all sweet substance to mouth contact.
A whimper and a cry was heard from both Nana and the babe.
