Comment of the Week

I thought the following comment was remarkably level-headed and on topic: When can your baby start eating sushi? It seemed to start people talking about the subject in an interesting way instead of complaining that the post belonged on the mommy blog.

When do babies in Japan start eating sushi? Honestly (and I'm a mom), it used to be "safe" to give your baby whatever you felt like he could handle. I'll bet a bunch of you ate food before 6 months, peanut butter and strawberries before 1 year, cow's milk before 1 year, honey, and even verboten stuff like cereal mixed with formula from a bottle with a great big hole in the nipple. And you lived to tell about it. My kid did. And he ate sushi when he was about 2, and 6 years later he's still eating it.

I also want to give a shout out to RayRay's comment on endangered seafood. The fact that no one went nuts (in a bad way) over it shows that even when we're discussing something pretty serious, there's always room for a little humor:

Eat stuff.

When it's gone, eat other stuff.

I thought RayRay's comment was very funny - I also agree...

the shart week comment was better.

You guys are going to get the blog police on me. EL

didn't anyone else look at their keyboard to see if hitting a 't' instead of a 'k' wasn't a likely typo?

Knowing RayRay comments, he surely meant to type a "t".

His comments often make me laugh out loud, real loud, and at work too. Perhaps I should only read the blog at home?

Nah, I need the break.

RayRay is, IMHO, the funniest guy in the Sandbox on a day-to-day basis. I always laugh right out loud.

RayRay is the king of the one-liner.

Humor + Brevity = RayRay.

SO agree about RayRay - he cracks me up!

I agree about RayRay. I would call him the Rodney Dangerfield of the blog, but he is getting too much respect for that.

Thank You everyone. :-)
