What is happening with our little-big family lately:
SuperDad just finished teaching a photography class at the community center. The extra coinage immediately disappeared into the overeating/purging cycle that has been sustaining my pregnancy.
I quit BOTH of my part-time jobs. Because I felt like it! So, the big debt repay, well, it's on the back burner right now. I am now 16 weeks pregnant. I still feel terrible, so it must be going well. :) It feels like a boy, but I could be wrong. (Though I haven't been so far!)
E is 5 1/2 and is gearing up to be a flower girl this weekend. It's stressing her out. We are constantly on our toes providing gluten free alternatives for her to take to school for all kinds of reasons.
D recently went through a speech evaluation, and failed the hearing screening portion. The bureaucracy surrounding going through all these services, as provided by the school district, is ridiculous. Or as D would say, "ridiculusht."
M is one now! And walking! And having some very serious opinions on, well, everything. She was accidentally glutened by some oat flour hiding in a YoBaby yogurt (okay, not hiding, I didn't read the label! Always read the label!), and her reaction was much, much more mild than the older two experience when glutened. I think this is a positive sign for her, and maybe due to the entire year I spent gluten free while she was nursing? Or not.
We've also gotten lots of comments of all kinds about having four kids. All I can say (that's nice), is that, well, our kids are awesome! Why wouldn't we want more?
Also, I'm uncertain about the future of this blog. Have I said all I have to say about being gluten free and frugal? Perhaps inspiration will strike again down the road. Perhaps not. In the meantime, check out

That's some serious frugality, yo.
