I awoke to my phone beeping at me Friday morning letting me know I had a new text message. hmm, kind of early for texts. I rubbed the sleep from my eyes to find texts and emails telling me what a great article and how excited they were to see me in the paper. What?? Oh yeah I had been pre-occupied with preparing for Welcome to Motherland, an art show for an evolving community art project about new motherhood that I am a part of. Bebe Meals was also doing the food for the event so I had been busy planning, shopping and cooking. I had completely forgotten about the article and when it was to run.
I was thinking “wow, a lot of people read the paper and they must read it all if they caught the little piece on baby food making”. Once Bebe B was awake and we had our breakfast I could no longer contain my curiosity. We hopped in the car and headed out to grocery store to get a paper. And there it was...first page of the taste section...giant pictures....teaser at the top of the front page of the paper! I was so excited I bought two and giddily shouted “that’s us, that article is about us” while pointing to the paper. She may have thought I was a bit nutty but I couldn’t contain my joy. The article (by Chris Martell) was wonderful and I hope inspirational to parents to make healthy food for their babies, their toddlers, their kiddos, their families.
I have received so much positive feedback from the article that I am convinced...people still read the newspaper. Hooray for newspapers!
