We switched 10-year-old Noah to a gluten free diet in October to help with his ADHD (in addition to being preservative free and dye free). There have definitely been some struggles and a learning curve as we find new foods he likes, recipes for things like hamburger buns etc. He has hard days where he’s tempted to eat the leftovers his friends are all to willing to share with him in the lunchroom. But overall I thought we were doing pretty well. Then today I found this in his school folder… (translation is below if you can’t read it)
I laughed so hard. Glad to know he thinks so highly of my cooking skills.
Here’s the typed version…
I hate my diet for many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many reasons. First off it keeps me from having a lot of my favorite foods. I’d list them and the other foods I like that I can’t eat but that take a year or two. Second of all most of the food I can eat is disgusting because usually it has to be homemade. And last but not least, one of the hardest parts of a diet, the sweets. They are limited & I mean limited! There is only one kidn of candy I can have Hershey’s & Hershey’s Kisses. And dessert is probably the hardest part of anything my diet could throw at me. No kid (except my little sister Natalie) should have to go through dessert choices as limited as mine (my sister Natalie could go with no sugar at all. From the way she acts at night you’d think she’d eaten nothing but pure sugar all her life! So that’s why I HATE MY DIET!!!!!!!!
I love how he throws his sister under the bus. And the excessive use of the word “many”.
And for the record Hershey’s are not the only candy he can have, it is the only one he likes.
