About Me

My photo
I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Eye Surgery for the twins

Our twins have esotropia, which means their eyes cross even with the correct prescription glasses on. The specialist we see has spoken with us about surgery to correct the crossing, and we have agreed it's time to go ahead with it. We meet the surgeon next week. I am of course a bit nervous at the thought of my little boys getting surgery, especially on their eyes, but I have great confidence in our doctors and trust their ability. It has been hard to watch our three year olds switch from the left eye to the right eye back to the left eye, trying to focus on something continuously. I can't watch them while they watch movies, it makes my eyes hurt for them! I can't wait until they see like everyone else does :)
