Today’s prompt for the Ultimate Blog Challenge was to talk about a day in history. Ironically, in my facebook memories for today came up a conversation between myself and my oldest from 5 years ago. My vegemite memories conversation took place during the time New Zealand had a Marmite supply crisis. Quite simply there wasn’t any. So we were all stuck with Vegemite. Not quite a substitute but the best we had.
Celine had been watching me make toast soldiers for Blake who had been on solids for a couple of months. Which lead to the following conversation:
Celine, of course, was only 4 years old at the time. She did eat Marmite but wasn’t too fussed on Vegemite as a substitute. Blake was a 6 month old baby who loved his Marmite toast soldiers and didn’t notice the difference between Marmite and Vegemite.
So that’s my little day in history for you. A silly conversation with a then 4 year old.
