Elly has had to watch Jamie and I devour slice after slice of pizza approximately once a week her whole life without ever getting to taste it herself. She didn’t seem to mind, but she didn’t know what she was missing. Due to her dairy allergy we had held off on giving her pizza. But we were out to dinner recently and saw they offered vegan pizzas (you could even get whole wheat crust!) so we went for it.
This was also a huge milestone because it was the first time we’ve ordered anything for her off of a kids menu. We are getting so adventurous in our parenting.
I think the pizza woke up her Italian characteristics because she has been extra passionate about expressing her thoughts and opinions as of late, Mamma mia! I am happy we have found a place to go out where she doesn’t just have to watch us eat pizza, she can join in the fun!
