Its all the same news.
Wheat free for 4 days has done its job for Little J. His bowels look like that of a 3 year old now instead of a baby-food eating 8 month old. So I guess we chalk that up to wheat intolerance. WAHOOOO we have found the culprit. BOOOO the culprit is wheat. Potty training is back on track though so that is a nice bonus. I’m not sure what is happening with J. Since he is independent with toileting I can’t just run in and check his poop before he flushes on a regular basis. Today I bit the bullet and cleaned out all the kid’s wheat containing foods from the pantry. I will be passing these on to the mom who has 4 boys and passed on a ton of clothes to me at the beginning of the year.
The wheat free cupcakes were more like muffins, but they were a big hit today at J’s school. Many of the kids asked for 2nds. J came up to me after his 1st one and told me “Mommy that was good.” After his second one “Mommy that was even more good.” He has been talking about having cake at school for his birthday since last November when in his first 2 weeks of school the triplets had a big party in class. The teachers made him a construction paper crown, and one for the other child who shares his birthday. They even had candles for each boy and sang the birthday song twice. It just showed me how much they really do believe what they told me in the beginning about treating each child as an individual.
It was so nice to see J in his school setting. I’ve been a few times, but only at the end of the day where everything is pretty much free play. Today I got to see their opening routines and other habits. I now know that some of his behaviors at home are because of
Little J home and not him. He was an amazing child in the classroom.
