The Bread of Affliction

Trying to get a one-year-old to sit through the entire Passover seder is a bit of a challenge, but Newmommy and I figured we'd get as far as we could. Apparently, someone had tipped Bud off to the fact that the first seder marks the beginning of eight days without bread or food with any sort of leavening. Early in the seder, the leader holds a piece of matzah and declares, "this is the bread of affliction, that our forefathers ate in the land of Egypt." As soon as those words left my mouth, my daughter, on perfect cue, replies, "Pizza."


In all fairness, she did enjoy everything on the menu. And I mean everything. This one-year-old eats chopped liver (but we already knew that), gefilte fish, stuffed cabbage, brisket, and anything else that comes out of a Jewish grandmother's kitchen.

P.S. We welcome A-Rod (back) to the Newdaddy club; he and his wife had a baby girl last night. Now, let's try decorating that chick's room with a world series trophy!
