On Friday Elise had ice cream for the first time, and on Saturday she got to try strawberry shortcake! You should have seen her chow down, it was so cute!
Some friends had a 4th of July barbeque, and were sweet enough to plan it around Elise's meal schedule (I LOVE people who do this for us - the husband is a PA, so her "gets" the medical stuff). I volunteered to bring the dessert so I would know exactly what was in it and Elise could have some.
She also had hamburger for the first time (we usually make turkey burgers), but she wasn't a huge fan. In fact, she liked the steamed broccoli a lot better!
It was a little sad to see her watch the other kids eat whatever they wanted, especially when she would turn to us and say, "want some?" We'd try to offer her some meat or cheese, but she'd refuse and start getting upset.
If you had a child that was dx very young, how did you deal with this? Obviously, she doesn't understand that she can't eat whatever, whenever. And she's too young for us to explain it to her. I've started to not eat in front of her at home, or only eat when she is, but out in the "real world", it doesn't work that way. Any tips on how to handle this?
And I know I forgot to say it yesterday, but Happy 4th to my American friends!
