Do you have any goals for your child in 2014?

We're going gluten-free in 2014 to see if it helps any with Colin's symptoms.  

What are you doing different?

Potty training!  I'm terrified, I feel like I don't have enough time to really commit to it, and frankly, I don't want to because potty training my girl was stressful and awful and I hated it, but he turns 4 tomorrow, and it is beyond time.  I just hope we can do it!

Going gluten free here as well! Good luck. Have you read "Nourishing Hope"? I just bought it, but it hasn't arrived yet. I think it's going to be a very big help. I also have found a ton of other resources if you are interested.

We're also going to try gluten-free ...... but it won't happen til about March when we move into our first house. No way I can change our diet and find a house at the same time!

You can do it!  And, I will confess, my boys (even my son with autism) were MUCH easier to train than my daughter was!

I haven't, but I'll check to see if it's available for Nook.  I was thinking about buying a Gluten-Free cookbook as well.

I don't blame you!  That's why we decided to wait until after the New Year ourselves, just too much crazy going on to try to change our diet.

Same goal I have for my kids every year - that they are happy, healthy, and feel loved.  The rest will come when it comes.

school is working on helping him with eye contact and answering to his name. So that and being able to increase his language and speech sounds would be my goal for my 3 yr old. 


For my 16 yr old aspie, I want him to get straight As in school and take the ACT (and hopefully do well).

Good luck going gluten free, anxious to hear how it goes! Our goal is helping transition to middle school smoothly and maintain friends. Our short term goal is to master multiplication facts!

 well my personal goal is to do more yoga and adapt a more vegetarian lifestyle. DS is a very picky eater and if I can find some really good recipes, maybe he will be more open-minded to trying new things. He isnt a fan if red meat to begin with so that's pretty cool
