You see THAT face????
It super sweet right?
Sweet like: telling me 100 times a day that he loves me.
Sweet like: hugging me so tight I can’t breathe.
THAT kind of LOVING and SWEET.
there are days where this sweet face DRIVE me NUTS!!!!!
He is completely, entirely, wholly emotional.
He walks around some days juggling all his feelings, trying DESPERATELY not to “drop” them.
And some days I feel as if all I do is try and navigate his heart.
It is exhausting.
As he has grown up I have always noticed that when he ate sugar…he seemed to AMPLIFY.
By AMPLIFY, I mean….
HARDER TO HANDLE
lately we have DRASTICALLY reduced his sugar intake.
It has been AMAZING.
He has been less……
We have even had days with NO FREAKOUTS.
In my search for summer treats with LESS SUGAR, I came across a recipe for “strawberry ice cream”.
I was in!!! ….
We tweaked it a bit, so here is OURS:
Put them in a blender..
And last night ….when we were going around the dinner table talking and telling our favorite parts of the day…
When it was Malachi’s turn- he said,
“My favorite part of the day was the ice cream. And I didn't”t even freak out!!!”
