Holy smokes... it's April? Why didn't anybody tell me? Not only April, but April 9th. So let's talk about some D-learnin' then...
-I'm breaking up with pizza. I truly give up, I cannot make it work for Elise. This is odd for me because it is a rather recent thing. I always give her homemade pizza, using whole wheat pita flat bread as a crust. I even sprinkle the cheese sparingly, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. She will ALWAYS go low about an hour afterwards (which of course we have to give her carbs for), then shoot into the high 300s overnight. Up until about 3 months ago, we never had a problem. It's a shame... she really does love pizza.
-They need to make some more fun, small items to fit into those plastic Easter eggs. When I went shopping for Elise's Easter basket a few weeks ago, the only thing out there for the most part is candy. I did find some fun stickers, chapstick, cars, and some rings... but that was about it. She also got a whole bunch of eggs with coins in them since we just bought her a piggy bank and she has become obsessed with "putting her monies in the pig".
-Sorbet is a great alternative to ice cream for Elise. You don't have the high fat content to deal with, and since it's made with real fruit, in my mind it's healthier. If this is not true, please keep your comments to yourself, I wish to remain living in my fantasy world.
