Since having my Tinker my diet has changed drastically.
When I was working I'd start the day with my fancy Carmens muesli. Then I'd drive to court and I'd buy myself a coffee at the cafe facing the courthouse. Not the one next door, not the one behind. I was very particular and I only liked my coffee if the older lady with the accent made it.
Then I'd slink down to the cells and see my clients while munching on neatly chopped organic celery sticks and slurping my coffee. Court usually breaks for recess mid morning and I'd have my little parcel of diced carrot and dried fruit while sipping my Evian water.
At lunchtime I'd usually eat down in the cells because time was short. I usually had a salad collected from a particular shop by one of my colleagues. While I was intensely busy I always managed to stick to my diet, and my 28" jeans proved it.
Now for breakfast I have yogurt. I lick it off my pyjama top. That's where it lands when my daughter throws it at me. Morning tea is a chocolate eaten in the pantry so Tinker doesn't see me and demand "choc-choc". Lunch is whatever she has refused, usually eaten cold, with a plastic baby spoon. Afternoon tea? Oh that is a cup of coffee if I'm lucky and she is had a sleep.
Dinner? Usually I have this at about 9pm on my own, in front of the computer. Usually a chocolate bar, a glass of wine, some toast and a piece of fruit.
Even the 5 second rule doesn't apply anymore. It is more like the 5 minute rule. Tinker will throw her sandwich on the floor and then it becomes my lunch.
When I am out and about I'll eat anything. Gone are the fussy -I-won't eat-there!-days. I'll eat anywhere, anything. Motherhood does that to you I think. You can't afford to be fussy you have no time for such frivolity.
My little girl on the other hand, is uber fussy when it comes to food. She drives me mad. Basically she lives on yogurt, grapes, toast and cheese. I keep checking for Scurvy but so far so good.
For those with kids, what has happened to your diet following parenthood and for those without kids- sit down and have a fussy meal just for me tonight, ok?
