We started this whole "trial" of wheat free eating (or nearly wheat free eating) Mid-Oct, I guess.  I have been wondering if it is really making that much difference or if it is all in my head.  Christmas Morning the little guy procured for himself a cinnamon bun.  I knew that he was tasting the icing off of it, but I really didn't think he'd eat it.  The next thing I knew it was gone.  Christmas night and the next morning, B had a terrible tummy ache.  I guess that answers my question!  Wheat-free really does seem to be making a difference.  Good to know. 

As a side note, we are visiting my parents for post-Christmas this week.  I didn't pack B's special gluten free breakfast of frozen waffles.  We have been to 4 different local grocery stores - within a 60 mile radius - and there is NO gluten free anything to be had.  I am very thankful to live 2 miles from a Publix grocery store (plus near to a Native Sun, and a wonderful WalMart) with lots of selection for my little guy.

It is hard going gf but definitely worth it! When we eat cinnamon rolls fir breakfast I make Bekah her gf pancakes in a rectangle shape. Spread some butter and  cinnamon sugar on it roll it up and cut into little rolls. We put some icing from ourrolls on it and We have Bekah's very own cinnamon rolls! She loves them and even though she knows it's different she enjoys having something just for her. Every kid is different though and that might not work for B. Bekah was alot younger when we switched her to gf so she is very used it.

But if you are seeing a difference I would deffinetly stick with it. You are a fantastic Mom I Know you can do it!!!!
