|And the blog now has competition|
A few weeks ago, I might have continued that paragraph with "like a baby."
But the HowChows now have a baby, and I'm no longer so cavalier about comparing anything to the fun, the rewards, or the time consumption of a two-foot-tall human.
Oh, yes. Two-feet tall. We didn't start with one of those beginner babies who just sit around. Lil' Chow came home with us on Friday from Korea. We are complete beginners, but Lil' Chow is a veteran with 17 months of experience, a taste for noodles, and a shocking burst of speed at short distances.
Obviously, the blog will change. Mrs. HowChow and I love the writing and the connections. A bunch of local bloggers were nice enough to guest post for one of the weeks when we were travelling. But Lil' Chow will certainly change our life -- how often we eat out, how often I post, how quickly I can respond to emails.
I hope to keep posting local food news and local food recommendations. I hope folks will continue to be amused. I considered just adding a toddler to our posts and letting folks figure it out. But Lil' Chow seems worth a post on his own. We will see where this goes from here.
Thanks agin to Lisbeth, Sara, Lisa and the Unmanly Chef who guest-posted last week to help cover our trip to Korea. Check out their posts of Korean soup, eating with toddlers, Caspian Market, and cooking with kids if you didn't have a chance. I giggled as the "eating with toddlers" post went up on our first full day with Lil' Chow.
