A while back I shared how I cut out sugar for an entire month. It wasn’t that bad, honestly. Then I slowly ate a little here and there.
But the past two weeks, I’ve eaten sugar like it’s my job. I have ice cream or some dessert every day. I’m eating cookies, chocolate, and drinking soda.
And MAN, I can feel it. My stomach has been achy. I’ve been groggy. My head has been hurting.
That stuff is a monster. And it’s an addiction, right? I mean, otherwise, why would we eat it? It tastes awesome. But then you feel it afterward. And would you believe there are some people who are SO addicted and SO dependent that they don’t even realize that they feel bad every single day? It’s become their normal. (cough cough “MY normal”….).

I’m not a book expert. I’m not a children’s book expert. I just know what books we like in our house. I figured I would share, in case you haven’t heard of them and want to check out some new ones!
I would say that all of these are appropriate for babies up to at least 14 months, and maybe more, but I can’t speak that far into the future.
Mr Brown Can Moo Can You (Dr Seuss)
I enjoy a lot of books by Dr Seuss. [Did you know that some Seuss books aren't written by the original guy? Some of them were written more recently, by other people. And YOU CAN TELL. They aren't as whimsical, in my opinion. One example of a non-Seuss Dr Seuss book is The Nose Book (Al Perkins), and I don't much care for it.]
I take pictures every meal of what I’m offering the baby because of the baby led weaning group I started. BLW means the baby eats almost exactly what we are eating. (A note about this week: We didn’t have enough groceries, so we ate out more than usual!)
