Baby Food for 14 month old

Nowadays, a large part of my day goes in deciding what to feed my 14 month old daughter.Till one year she was the epitome of obedience- used to open her mouth and I could feed her as I wished.
Now she has become so finicky and will not eat her staple food anymore.
So, have to decide and try new things on a daily basis.
Will try to reproduce her daily menu and the new things I try for her for the other mothers of fussy eaters...:)

Review: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L.James

Had seen this book in the new york times bestseller list therefore decided to download and read it, but sadly was a waste of time.

Could barely get through half of it which is very very rare for me.

Not worth wasting money on at all...

Working mom vs homemaker

The past two days have had me obsessing on making DD sleep....her sleeping times being erratic suddenly- leaves me with no time at all.Have realized that being at home is more work than office.

I spent just 1 month in office after she was born and would invariably obsess whether she has been fed properly; is she missing me etc...and ended up rushing home on a half day /or early to find that madam is busy playing.

We moms are always in such a quandary- better to go to office and earn and fell that one has utilized ones potential or leave all that for taking care of a baby.
Realised that being a homemaker is a really thankless job...:(
