Jump start with DAN

I got my call from jumpstart which is the nurse affialiated with a Dan Dr. This call came on Tuesday and we decided that I would start NO DAIRY on Friday because Thursday was Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was disappointing all Jordan wanted to do was play on the computer he didn't really run around with the kids.

Friday what a day. I want milk was first thing I heard. I had already hid all the milk so I just told him we were out. It seemed to work. Of course Jeffrey wanted cereal for breakfast the boy never wants cereal so I had to listen to him whine also about the lack of milk in the house. Which is really funny because jeffrey hates milk. The boys then went to grandma's to play with their cousins and she hadn't hid the cheese or yogurts yet. Luckily the milk was already put in coffee creamer containers. We distracted him all day from dairy unfortunately we just gave him gluten foods but I guess one step at a time. Three weeks dairy free then during christmas no more gluten. By afternoon he seemed o.k.

I woke up this morning to a cock a doodle do. It was my son telling me to get up. He got in bed with me and we had a conversation it was wonderful . He seems to be talking better already and when he asked for milk I just told him we were out.

Where do I begin?

Let me start by saying Hello. I am a mom of 2 boys 8 and 6. My younger boy has PDD-Nos. I finally got the people in his life to agree to follow my lead and have my child go gluten free and cassein free. I believe that even with all the bumbling I will do my son will be better at the end of the day. I am keeping this blog so I can see what I have done and where I have been.

Jordan finally got his shadow at school this week. It is so nice to not have to spend 2 hours trying to get him to focus on a simple worksheet. I have decided to go cf first over christmas break because then I will have total control.

I have been adding rice milk, very little to the bottom of his milk cup for every meal. He can smell and taste the difference but watches me pour the milk in his cup so can't quite figure it out.
I sent my mom to Whole Foods this week. Which is no small task considering the closest is 1 1/2 hours away. Luckily there is also a Trader Joes there also. I had her get some hemp milk which is good but not really worth the drive when I can get almond milk in the next town 30 mins away. I also had her see if she could find a cereal that had colors but no dyes or preservatives. She found Fruity Bunnies by Annie's. Now I know that it isn't considered gf because of the oats but it is better than fruit loops. Anyways I showed him the box and made a big deal about this new cereal that I found. He just looked at me like I was nuts. Now you have to know we have a rabbitt and the box has a picture of a rabbit on the front. I hear out of his mouth "Mother (why he calls me that and not mom I don't know) why are you making me eat food for the rabitt." After I quit laughing I had to roll my eyes now what. I was happy that he asked a why question but come on. He ended up taking a tiny tip of the tongue lick before he decided it wasn't any good. That sucks since the cereal was $3.99. I tried feeding it to my older son but I guess everyone was on a yuck kick. Luckily I have a home daycare and they will eat anything.
