Glutened

It's been almost two years since our kids had their last exposure to gluten. I've been wanting to do a trial, to make sure they hadn't outgrown it, but it never seemed the right time. Then we gave them a couple of bites of soup that we thought was gluten-free. It wasn't.

Wow. Let's just say that this blog is safe and sound, because we'll be gluten free for... ever, I guess. Behavior issues and diaper rash and headaches and tummy aches, and happy Thanksgiving, y'all. ;)

A blessing from it, though, is that both kids now understand the WHY behind us saying no. That doesn't mean they aren't ever disappointed that they can't eat what everyone else is eating, but they at least understand. (For what it's worth, I'm disappointed too, I REALLY wanted some of my BIL's cornbread casserole. Like really. A lot.)
