Can I Live Up To My Reputation?

The Yummy Mummy has elevated me to celebrity status. Yes. She has selected me as a worthy recipient of this fabulous award. I have no idea what it means or if I feel like passing this on to others. But I am eternally grateful and thank my loyal fans.

I small problem I see is that despite what The Yummy Mummy might think, I would most likely not be up to concocting tofu in the airport bathroom with my pantyhose because:

1. I loathe pantyhose and don't own any..too petro for me
2. I "skeeve" airport bathrooms! What if my precious Izzy were to touch some germs and get ill while traveling?

What I would consider is keeping a portable burner in my luggage. Although nowadays that could be dangerous since someone might peg me for a terrorist at the airport. Which leaves me with just packing a separate suitcase full of food "just in case." My husband always looks at me cross-eyed as I pack up my hard-boiled eggs, goat cheese sandwiches and myraid other goodies but let me tell you, he never seems to turn down the offerings.

It is true that I go to great lengths to avoid fast food and other unseemly foods we might encounter on planes, trains and cars but it pays off in the end. A well-fed child is a happy one.

2 Things.
1. You wouldn't wear panty hose (or spiky heels) on an airplane because you're not supposed to. Panty hose would melt to you if there were to be a fire.
2. We should be considered about feeding ourselves and our family. We can't trade our body in, as much as we might like to.

There. You're just fine!
