Happy Thanksgiving!

And a Happy Birthday to the Oldest Kidlet, who has amused us all with the ways he’s responded to Happy Birthday. When I said it to him, he was still in bed, playing the new Legend of Zelda game on his 3DS. He looked at me, somewhat sleepily. “Happy Birthday to you,” he said. “Babe, that’s not how that works. It’s just your birthday.” “Oh, right.” Then when my mom said it about 15 minutes later, he said, “Oh yeah.” And 10 minutes after that when my dad said it, Oldest Kidlet looked up and said, “Why did you kiss…

Mistakes I’ve Made: The Wee Hours of the Morning

We had a lovely Thanksgiving here. The food was ready on time, everything was warm… and a lovely time was had by all! Only I made the mistake of eating all the side dishes, two of which had dairy in them. Usually I (TMI territory here) wind up with cramps and other urgent type digestive issues. Back before I had the diagnosis, it would occasionally get worse, and I’d vomit for hours until my stomach was completely empty. Around 1:30am, I woke up from a dream where I was in a world of LEGOs that kept vomiting little LEGO pieces.…

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve been a wee bit out of it this week. Sorry for the lack of posts. Last year was a success when it came to Thanksgiving, so far as allergies went. I cooked the day before, making the Little Kidlet’s meal. So we’re repeating that. Right now I’m roasting a turkey breast (which doesn’t seem to be as golden as I’d hope, but we’ll just keep going with it) and already made LK’s sage stuffing. (While it’s too late to buy the ingredients for this Thanksgiving, this is a GREAT stuffing, so add it to your lists for your next…

Allergies vs Thanksgiving

As you all should know by now, the Little Kidlet has a slew of allergies and I have a gluten issue. On a normal day, this means that LK and I have a lot of separate meals from the rest of the family. But how does it affect holidays? Well, in the past, I’d roast a turkey for LK and make sure he had a couple of sides. Now that I’m on a restricted diet, we’re going for broke- I’m going to make a separate meal for her and I. How to handle it? I bought separate tupperware containers for…

School recitals & fits of rebellion

Today was Little Kidlet’s first big school recital. They tend to have something once a month. It could be a parade in the schoolyard or a bigger show in the school’s chapel (it’s at a church). Off I went with camera in hand. Despite being there early, there were people in rows ahead of me who politely promised not to lean into my camera view, and then did just that. I’m not sure how good the video actually is, yet. Next time I’ll just have to be there earlier- especially since the next one is the Christmas pageant. Since LK…

Happy Thanksgiving!

On this day, I’d like to take a moment to mention what I’m thankful for. I am thankful for my family and close friends, who keep me sane. My mom is wonderful, and while we don’t see each other as often as we’d like, she’s almost always just a phone call away- whether it’s to help me get through a meltdown, or to gush over a TV show we both watch. My in-laws are just as important, as they’re the ones who put up with my madness (as well as the kidlets) on a daily basis and I love them…
