Gooner had her two year appointment a little late… Anyway, she’s a bit underweight; in the 10th percentile if you will. The doctor asked me if Gooner got any sugar because I “look like a parent that doesn’t allow sugar in your home.” Um , what? I mean I didn’t look like THIS:
at the appointment. Don’t all people, pregnant or not, LOVE Brussels Sprouts? Apparently I have that “look” about me. Which I don’t understand because I’ve been dreaming about my Birthday Cheesecake from the cheesecake factory for MONTHS. Apparently my child isn’t getting enough sugar with her one cookie a week and chocolate in her oats EVERY DAY!?
We also had a “discussion” about cows milk. We don’t drink cows milk and neither does Gooner. I DO bake with milk on occasion, but normally use almont/coconut milk. The doc was NOT happy with my decision, but FINALLY let it go when I told her that Gooner DOES get a supplement. For the love. And she was appalled that Gooner didn’t get TWO 8 oz. glasses of fortified orange juice PER DAY. Um what? I limit Gooner to ONE glass of watered down juice per day. PER DAY!
Ultimately, she’s not worried about Gooner’s smallness, which is good, because neither am I!
