Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back to you! As always, thank you for sending me your thoughts.
First- I want to start with Miss L who had a question. While yogurt is ok for most A's (neutral, but ok), I have found that my little celiac cannot tolerate yogurt in any form. (Organic, non-organic, half a serving, whole serving, etc.) Some people just have individual variances, and trial and error is the only way to go. Good luck, I hope you can eat it!
Miss J and Miss K - thanks for your insight on learning disabilities. At the moment, I have officially asked the school to assess him, so now we play the waiting game. It takes 3 to 4 months where I live to complete all of the observations and tests. I will say, that I am surprised thus far as he has not been bringing homework home (last year he couldn't get anything done in school at all.) I look forward to my son's open house and I will be keenly observing the classroom settings. Is this teacher doing something differently than the last teacher did? Is the diet helping in a way that it didn't help last year? Who knows? But I look forward to hearing the school's observations.
Miss L (a different one)- thanks for your advice on homeopathy. There is a part of me that wants to spend hours on learning more - and another part of me that says "What are you nuts? Your plate is full, you have all that you can handle. Just be patient! " But you have reminded me of something. It's time to start asking other mothers what they have done -- before I drop our precious dollars at the health food store! Thanks again.
Mr D - I fear you are right. Yet, I was hoping that my grocery store just received a really good deal on the brand. Does anyone else know which brand of olive oil is truly cold pressed and the most economical all of the time? Is there a food co -op I should be looking into or can I order things directly?
I wish Trader Joe's was located here in Rockford!!! Happy Labor Day, everyone.
