Okay, I'll tell you.
When school first started this year, I was giving the kids cereal just like I have every other day for the last 4 years of school. Obviously this means Emma is my cereal kid. But with Mags, it wasn't doing the trick. She would come home from school and be in this weird zombie like state. Now, I don't mean just tired or bored, it was like she couldn't function. She would just sit and stare into space. And it would last for hours. At first I thought she just needed to get out of the house, so we started doing bike rides or walks around the block. It didn't really help that much. Then, after some great insight from my awesome mother in law, I decided it might be a sugar thing. So I started giving her eggs in the morning.
It was like a magic bullet.
The very first day we did eggs, she came home in a great mood, had much less desire to eat snacks all day, and she seemed like her normal self. It changed her whole demeanor. She was happy, engaged, and had more energy.
Luckily, whatever it is isn't serious, because I had her sugar checked at her Kindergarten physical (which is a whole nother post in itself). I guess it just took something like this for me to see first hand that what we put into our bodies really does make a difference.
But Emma, she's still perfectly content to eat cereal. And Gretta, she'll stick with her sippy cup, and sometimes she'll eat the leftover eggs.
Me, I'll have a Coke, please. I didn't say I needed to watch what I put into my body.
