i just got this tinkle-in-my-pants email from my friend shelly, another hot mama in the mullies.
Okay, so I have to tell you…. We are truly 99.5% gluten free in our house – it has taken some time but we are really making head way with no gluten, preservative free, no GMO’s or color additives and clean healthy foods. Still working on getting the finishing touches on the gf flour blend – ordering items on amazon tonight. But this is what has me delighted – Ana’s teacher emailed me and informed me that Ana sat and wrote an ENTIRE page to her pen pal for 35 minutes!! That is MASSIVE!!! Ana could not sit for 5 minutes let alone write more than 3 sentences. I am tickled pink and to some parents this isn’t much - but for me – it’s HUGE… Banana was stretching to read at a level D and in the past 2 weeks she is reading D books with ease. I am so excited - but you know what this is all about!
It has been just about 3 weeks – two weekends of shopping all natural/clean – Mike and I haven’t spent this much time together since our honeymoon:) Oh man! I have also added Fish oil & flax seed (smoothies are a great cover) to our daily intake. Plus, I tell the girls everything I have added and explain why & what it does for them. Lilly is loving this and is so interested in nutrition – “knowledge is my power” my girls have been hearing it day after day for the past 3 or so weeks.
By the way – LOVE the celery soup! My Dad was so funny, I barely sat down on the bleachers and he was asking if I had any more – laughing at him – I told him I would bring some over the next day. First thing in the door last Fri – he took the container with a big smile! I made his day.
dancing in my kitchen...dancing for all the chances being taken. this song is for all of you.
"chances are, we're making our own equation.
chances are all we need, chances are this could be the combination, chances come and carry me...
chances are waiting to be taken."
you go girls.
