Just a little update

I did not post a meal plan, nor have I been following the ones I did for a few months now because we have been having some medical issues with our oldest child.

Alexzander, who just turned ten in April, has been having digestive issues most of his life. They seem to have come to a peak lately and we have been trying to figure out what the cause is. Unfortunately, we still do not have answers.

My first thought was the he has Celiac, he has many of the symptoms. We tried an elimination diet and had him tested. It made no difference and his test came back negative. He had a physical and my doctor recommended that we see the dietitian. Between his physical and the dietitian, he was having a very bad day, we ended up taking him to an after hours clinic and they gave him an xray. He was very constipated, we have been working on making sure he is regulated since.

A few days after the xray, he has his appointment with the dietitian. She evaluated him and her suspicion was that he had a dairy allergy. So for around a month, we did the elimination diet for dairy and just recently he was tested for  allergies to dairy and eggs. Both came back negative, we added dairy back to his diet and he has not had problems with them.

As of now, we are just giving him a break. Unless he starts having a lot of pain or other issues, we are letting him be for at least a couple weeks before we start making more appointment. I believe the next step will be a scope.

My biggest suspicion at this point is either IBS or Chorn's. Right now we are just waiting and seeing how he does.

In the mean time, I will be posting meal plans again.

Rostick Review






I was recently given the chance to review Rosticks - set of fire roasting sticks. We do a lot of camp fires and a camp fire is not complete without roasting marshmellows for smores. Until I had this item we had been using metal ones, without a guard and they could get very hot when not watched.


The great thing about these is the handle is covered so it does not get hot, they are adjustable and keep kids away from the fire and they rotate. They are easy to use, brightly colored so the kids loved them, the rotating helps in getting the perfect roast on your smore and they are easy to clean and care for.


They did come with a canvas bag for storing, we just are not using it, they are in a drawer between uses. They also come with small caps to place on the ends so fingers do not get poked reaching into a drawer of the bag.

I am very pleased and would recommend this purchase!

My kids were very happy to use them.

Bonke Food Jar Review


I recently had the opportunity to review a Bonke Food Jar. I purchased the brown one and have been using it as a snack jar.

I love the design of this jar. The doughnut top is adorable and all my kids really like it. It is BPA free, leak proof and the lid is easy enough to remove that even my four year old can do it.

I fill my jar with different snacks for when we are on the go. We have used it for trail mix, crackers, fruit and more. I fill it, screw the lid on, and stick it in my bag. Perfect container  for busy families that still want to bring a healthy snack with!

The jar holds 12 oz and what you can use it for is limitless. It is great for snacking, adding to a lunch bag, can hold liquids and solids. Very multi purpose and super cute!

I would recommend this to all my mom friends!
