Had to go back to bed after bringing the kids to school - had a headache that even an Aleve wouldn't take away. I think it must be allergy-related. Feeling better now, though. Wondering if I should attempt any deal shopping, or just take the day off.
I have decided to slowly wean my son off gluten. A friend who has done lots of research on nutrition and healthy eating thinks it would be beneficial (for those who might not remember, I have never had him tested, but am sure he would fall on the autistic spectrum, highly-functioning aspergers most likely). He's been struggling at school lately with not being able to focus, so I want to help him in whatever way I can. We've started with gluten-free breakfast this week, and I don't know if you can say definitively yet that its made the difference, but I will say that he has had 2 great days in a row, whereas he had 2 weeks prior of struggle every.single.day.
Could the headache be related to the threatening thunderstorms of the last day or so, that we are still "supposed" to have this weekend?
Most autism mommas I know removed both gluten and casein. I've read good and bad on both sides, and tried it when my now 13 year old was first diagnosed. There weren't any differences for her, and my 10 year old has a very self-limited diet (though, amazing!! after 6 years of eating about the same 10 things, he has asked to try 3 new foods in the past week) so I never tried. Are you going to switch the entire family or only him? Makes a big difference because of cross-contamination issues. New cookware, etc, is needed.
I know several mommas that have had awesome luck for their children, using the gfcf diet. to you and your son.
Congrats to your son!

That makes me sad. I love buying Amazon Gift Cards at
I think this is a bad move on Target's part.

Yowza on the price
I have mustard on a favorite polka dot shirt that did not come out in the wash when pretreated. I did hang dry it, so I could try it again. What should I use to get the rest of the stain out?
Sharon - Baby News??
What did you use to pretreat it? Is it in a place that you could use a paste of oxy-clean/ water, or in a spot that it would be too noticeable if a dot or a few were miscolored?

I think trying the gluten free may be a wise choice. It couldn't hurt and may actually help alot. I eat low carb and once I got used to not having alot of things, I learned to adapt my recipes and now I really don't mind. Alot of it just depends on finding alternate recipes to make things you like. I have ordered lots of new products from amazon lately.
hope it makes a huge difference
This has been a crazy week.. Missed part of Monday because my DD was sick. Then yesterday on my off day, she was fine.. Last night she was up coughing at 4 am.. I ended up dozing for a few hours on the couch after I got her back down. Now, my back is killing me.. When she woke up today, she was complaining and crying with an earache. Poor baby cried for about 2 hours. Took her to the pediatrician and both ears are infected, plus her chest congested.. We ended up with ear drops, antibiotics and some mucinex. Getting her to take them is always a pleasure as well *sigh*
I just want some sleep tonight. Hoping DH will volunteer to watch her some tonight so I can rest.
Hope you are both feeling better!

My oldest niece graduated yesterday. It was a nice day, celebrating graduation and two family birthdays and getting to see my great nephew (who recently learned to walk) strut his stuff. They grow up too fast (nothing that Moms here don't already know).
