Wow, I think I blinked and the first week of February was over. Now it’s time to start a new week…and it will be just as busy as the last.
This week we have a speech therapy appointment, music, dance, chiropractor and swimming lessons. My bulk order of grains has come in so I need to get to the health food store. We have our mom’s group. It’s a speaker day, which means I’ve got work to do. We are also going to a basketball game and having my whole family over for dinner.
Of course with a busy week I like to plan way too much to do at home. For now my kitchen plans include soaked gf noodles, soaked gf graham crackers, soaked gf crackers, oat milk, sourdugh english muffins, soaked gf bread, soaked gf sweet bread, water kefir and some kind of dessert for our family gathering. Plus cleaning the house.
Last week my little one had two shots. Thankfully she was only fussy for one day. Now she’s back to her happy self. So far I’m still doing daily broth plus probiotics. It won’t be long before we start some solids.
My son seems to be getting mostly back to normal. It’s been wonderful to have him sleeping well and being able to do his school work again. Though his skin is still a bit splotchy. I haven’t decided yet what I want to introduce next. Maybe nuts. But I’ll wait another week.
We had a consult for my oldest last week with a new dentist. We are going to start some orthodontic work with her so that she starts breathing better and getting quality sleep. It’s disheartening to see her grinding her teeth, snoring and flopping all over her bed in the night. So we are all very excited about this!
Tomorrow I’m talking grains – the hows and whys. Then I’ll be sharing some basic recipes on properly prepared grains. You don’t want to miss it! This is such an important factor in your health…one that I let slide and now I’m paying for with major nutrient deficiencies and cavities.
