My 8 year old went away to the lake with another family for the long weekend. The other family knows I don't allow my kids to junk out, so on Saturday night, they called with the "everything is good" phone call. "R is junking out, eating pizza, drinking pop, eating sugar by the bucketload."
My husband and I just laughed the phone call off, little did we know all h... would break loose for them in a couple of hours. R did indeed junk out during the day albeit not as badly as the other kids. Around 1 o'clock in the morning, R was on the top bunk and started throwing up the days misdeeds. He did let me know his friend on the lower bunk was lucky because he missed the stream from the upper bunk!!! He said he felt great after he got rid of all the food. No kidding!!!
The next day after lunch of sandwiches, ice cream, chips and pop, R's nose started bleeding profusely. As an O non, when he starts bleeding, it looks like it will never end. He normally gets nose bleeds when he eats something not on the O diet or when there is a lot of pollen in the air. Luckily they were at the beach and clean up was easy.
When R got home last night, he was the crankiest I have ever seen him. His is normally a sweet natured child who is not cranky very often. Usually, if he is cranky, he puts himself to bed. Last night, he was like a caged lion and was trying to pick fights with anyone who crossed his path.
He refused to eat with us, but about 20 minutes after supper, he took the leftover organic ground beef out of the fridge, added home-made salsa and chowed down on that. When he finished eating, he was transformed into his normal demeanor.
I bet the family that took him on holidays, can't wait to invite him again!!!!
