I haven’t been posting much lately because it’s the summer and we are in the USA visiting family and also away on vacation, so there hasn’t been much cooking (well there has, but not by me.) The blog will ramp back up again around August 21 when we get back to the UK and back to reality. Happy Trails everybody. :)
It’s got to be weird for to be the child of a T1D. LL knows what foods are high in sugar and good to eat during an episode of hypoglycemia. Boy-yer pretends to inject himself with insulin and LL did the same when she was his age. Maybe everyone at that age thinks their own experiences are totally normal?
LL has been telling me lately that she wants to be the mama and I will be her baby. Tonight she said that she would keep her baby (me) healthy by never giving me donuts. It’s funny that she brought this up on the last day of school, after the end of year party where I let her have whatever desserts she wanted, including a mini donut.* The whys of the healthy eating habits I’m trying to instil may not be totally comprehended, but I’ll take it. Something must be sinking in.
*As a side note, I was so relieved this year to have a teacher and other parents in LL’s class that really believe in healthy eating and by and large even at class parties, provided mostly or exclusively healthy options. The occasional treats, like at her end of school party, were truly the exception and that made me feel so much more comfortable as a parent letting her indulge in them.
