Back in the Swing of G-Free Parenting

Sorry, it’s been awhile!  Bryan, Logan, Mia, and I are doing great!  We went to dinner tonight at our local Perko’s with my Mom and Dad and I told Bryan, “Don’t order fries.”  As always, a big issue because the fries are not in a designated fryer.  Bryan and my Dad, who were going to Read more…

How Do You Catch That?

So last weekend, I’m hanging out playing Legos with the boys.  Ethan starts to whine that he’s tired.  Ayden, his four year old brother, retorts that he’s tired because he ate a Pop Tart at Grandma’s house.  This, of course, piques my interest, so I start asking about one hundred questions on where, when, how Read more…

United Front…So I Thought

We went out to dinner for the first time the other night since finding out that Logan is CD.  We just went to our local Perko’s to get something quick and affordable with the kids and my parents.    I have to say that Perko’s, especially our waitress, was great with understanding about cross contamination and Read more…

It's confirmed…

It’s confirmed…Logan has Celiac Disease.  I ended up getting into the doctor sooner because of a cancellation and I’m so glad.  I’ve been so worried because his tummy has been hurting so much and I really expected a major change when going on a GF diet.  Our GI specialist told me that it can take Read more…

24 Days, but who's counting?

Hi.  My name is Hilary, and I have been a G-Free Mommy for 24 days.  Yes, I know that sounds like that phrase that people use as an intro at an AA meeting….but at times that’s what being a G-Free Mommy feels like.  I would imagine that an alcoholic feels like something they love has Read more…
