Day 4 GF - lesson learned at school party
Saturday, May 11, 2013
Rough gluten-free day yesterday for my daughter.
Yesterday was a party in my daughter's class, so I sent her with some GF treats for her to eat (hoping it would help her not feel "left out"). Instead of feeling left out, she felt "singled out". Next time, instead of sending her with her own personal treats, we decided we'll make enough for her to share with the whole class. Hopefully, that will help her feel more included in the party.
Later in the day, we visited grandma who had just bought a new package of oreo cookies. Of course, my daughter was bummed that she couldn't have any while her little brother and sister each had a couple. Luckily, we still had a leftover GF cookie from her party - but she still felt bad.
Finally, we're still struggling with a decent bread replacement for her sandwiches... The breads we've found are ok for toast with lots of peanut butter, but not so good for sandwiches. We're going to try making some homemade bread this weekend - so if you have any bread recipe recs, please pass them along!
To make matters worse, tummy aches were pretty bad yesterday, so I think she's feeling discouraged with her food-limits. (It's hard being patient as a 9yr old - she wants to feel better, now!)
