Urgh - could probably not cope very well with cockroaches - ewk!
B is the same when he grumpy - nothing is right and its all wrong and he's going to make sure she all know about it! Its tiring!
I'm in that phase of thinking he will totally not be prepared for school next September as he really doesn't want to try potty training and is not interested in getting dressed by himself. I think I also felt like that about Aidan though so I think I'm just doing a bit of advanced worrying as we have 16 months to sort it out!!
I think it must be the age BP - mine is also being a bit of a nightmare! He was being aggressive at play school last week, then was having a huge melt down on the way home and the whole street heard it, and he's been like that on and off for a couple of weeks. I am mostly ignoring the worst of it but not letting him get away with any antisocial behaviour. Tiring though, plus he likes getting up at 5am!!
I'm pretty sure that kind of diet is not being discussed for children here, I suppose most people might still consider a diet excluding sugars and carbs a bit bespoke?!? A dentist I saw said to avoid fruit snacks and use breadsticks/cheese instead, and another dentist warned of the perils of honey and tooth decay!
However saying that I have been doing something similar and cut carbs and sugars and did stop craving them so from a personal point of view I can see why it might be a good idea to get kids to try and do similar. However then you introduce different worries about a meat/protein based diet and whether that is 'healthy' so I suppose balance is key.
Had my carb free dinner of lamb steak, aubergine and courgette with parsley and walnut pesto. Yum. Plus wine - 9th wedding anniversary today!!
