Oatmeal-raisin cookies? Or oatmeal-nutbutter no-bake mounds? Did I send back your Super Baby Food book? 'Cause there are some really yummy-sounding no-bake cookie recipes in there, IIRC. Or how about date bars - they're remotely healthy and darn good.
Renae, I totally hear you about the mama friends who you don't agree with. It's hard. I honestly have a really hard time hanging out with people who do CIO, etc. even if I really like them otherwise. Bottles for working mamas I'm ok with, but CIO, early weaning, overnight babysitters at 2 months, etc. - those things are hard to take with a nod and a smile.
The family we have our nannyshare with is totally cool, and I really like them, but at the first interview I was a little scared because, well, you know, first impressions. The mama was wearing designer everything and had her hair blown out, you know what I mean (no offense to those of you who wear designer clothes and have their hair blown out - it's just not exactly my style, kwim). ANYWAY. So we were chatting and I was wondering where they were on the AP spectrum, and her 2-year-old walks over and crawls in her lap, she pops out a boob without blinking an eye, continues chatting...and I was like, aaaah, ok, she's cool.
It's turned out really well and we get along great.
OK, enough blabbing, lunch over, must go find more boxes for mailing.
