This morning on Instagram I’m seeing photos of kids going back to school, while I’m still getting used to summer. Didn’t we just have a blizzard? I don’t know. I’m sweating. I feel weird.
Tomorrow, Sophie and I are waking up early and headed to see her allergist for a three hour appointment. The girls’ recent allergy testing showed that Remmy has outgrown her wheat allergy (in the words of Lil Jon, YEAHHHH), but Sophie’s results came back as being positive. Her doctor thinks it might be a false positive, which is common in testing, so she suggested that Sophie comes in for a wheat challenge. We’ll be there super early, Sophie will eat some wheat, and then the doctor will monitor her to see how she responds. I’m hoping and praying that she too has outgrown her wheat allergy. It would be a game changer for us, and I keep daydreaming about coming home and baking bread the whole family can eat. BREAD! Crackers! Vegan cake instead of gluten-free and vegan cake! I am scared of how excited I am, because I don’t want to be all :( :’( :( tomorrow if they tell me she’s still allergic to wheat.
When the allergy list is as long as theirs, every food we can add back into their diets is a victory. I mean, even mustard, which comprises – what – .05% of the average American’s diet? I even cheered when mustard was giving the thumbs up. YEA MUSTARD, go ahead with your dijonny self.
The two older girls are on ‘camp break’ this week and next, and I’m also gearing up to start homeschooling Remmy. :O :D :O :O
With summer coming to a close, I’m going to go on a blog-lite schedule. It’s always an iffy decision to make, because less blogging usually means fewer pageviews which definitely means less income, but it’ll be good to catch up on some things and square other things away. :) I’ll still be blogging, but less than five posts a week. YOU TOLD ME IT WAS COOL. :) In between posts, if you’d like to scroll through the archives or past series, this page is good for that, this page has all of the categories listed, and at the very bottom of this website is a drop down box where you can read by the month. I’ll still be posting regularly on the big 4, so you are welcome to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
And if I still have as much dirty laundry at the end of the month as I do today, then you all have permission to come slap me around a little. ^:)
