Hi everyone, just a quick note to let you know that we have some new moderators on the forums, no doubt you're familiar with these guys.and 8 others.
So if you have questions, complaints, requests to delete that post you drunkenly bashed out at 3am and now regret, moderators are:
Congratulations! My only useful advice is to avoid internet parenting forums like the plague. I'm not even kidding. They are a hot bed of judgemental crazies and no matter what you're doing there will be an online gang ready to pile on and tell you you're doing it wrong and probably abusing your child in the process.and 3 others.
I have one child (18 now) and as someone who didn't grow up around much younger siblings and had no parent friends at the time, I was clueless. I basically treated my daughter like a tiny adult - spoke to her like I would anyone else from day one (a bit less colourful swearing, perhaps), took her with me out for breakfast or to cafes or when she was a bit older to movies and whatever artsy thing I wanted to look at. She's turned out to be a gem - which could be just her nature, but I like to take the credit. ;-)
Edit: babies make the weirdest noises. Don't panic when you hear all that snuffling and snorting they do throughout the night!

My bog standard Monday night taco is pretty trashy - minced beef and either kidney or black beans flavoured with a salt free taco seasoning I buy on iHerb. We have them with crunchy corn shells and salsa, sour cream, grated cheese and shredded lettuce, also avo if it’s in season.
If I’m feeling fancy or feeding people other than just Lily and myself, I marinate a chunk of beef in a marinade I stole from Tyler Florence’s fajita recipe, then cook it in a really low oven for 6 or 7 hours until it’s soft and shreddable. Not at all legit but I live on the other side of the world from Mexico, so don’t judge me!
