NEW RONAN JAMES GRAPHIC ART!

We are going to be putting these, as well as some others, on Ro’s Etsy site soon.  They’ll be available as prints, or something else if we feel like getting more creative!  AMAZING!!!!

The Loudon of the Day

Mama and Lowie enjoyed “Grandparent’s Tea” at his school last week!

He said, “Mom, I look goooood!”

He is delicious!!!

But my zombie hands…not so much.

Where Was This When Mama And Ro Did The Diet?

We started Ro on the GFCFSFCornFSugar(FArt)ificialFEverythingF diet soon after we got his diagnosis when he was 16 months.  Since I was still nursing him, I went on the diet too.

It was pretty easy for him, because he only drank “ditty” milk and ate about 5 other things, all of which were easily replaceable with substitutes.

I blogged about our biomed journey a long time ago, and now I am too lazy to find the link… lol

Anyway, it was me that had the hard time on the diet.  I LOVE food, and dairy is one of my faves (although, it does not love me).  Giving up real milk, ice cream, cheese….SO hard for me.  We ended up finding light coconut milk in the can.  It wasn’t the best, but it was really creamy, so it turned into my new staple (it was amazing in the ice cream maker).

I didn’t always want the coconut taste, though, and it wasn’t fortified with any calcium or vitamin D, etc.

But look what they make now!  Mama likes!  I tried the unsweetened, and it was yum.

Click on the link below if you are doing the diet, or if you just get massive amounts of pain from regular dairy, like Mama do….

The Loudon of the Day

We have been playing “I love you more” lately – a lot.

Loudon:  Mom, I love you more than 100.

Mom:  I love you more than 1,000!

Loudon:  I love you more than that!

Mom:  I love you infinity!

Loudon:  MOM!!!!!!!  STOP IT!!!!

Mom:  (surprised, because he usually loves this)  Stop it?  Why?

Loudon:  (spent)  I’m tired of this love game.

Well, if that doesn’t sum up male/female communication, then I don’t know what does!

We are MOVING!

Posts have been scant, as of late.  I’m starting my pet walking/sitting again, and Ronan James has been partaking in a great deal of social/therapeutic activities.  It’s been really good for our spirits, but not so good for succumbing to the muse  😉

Anyway, WordPress has been our blog home for over a year, and we are very grateful for the platform that it has provided.  That being said, I think more visibility is afforded to us at blogspot, plus we can do things there like embed objects, and other fancy things that we can’t do on WordPress.

So, please look for us on blogspot at –www.theronanjamesblog.blogspot.com!!!

We’d be so happy to see you there!!

Pre-Music Syndrome

Alright, already!  I can’t stop with these songs!!!  This one reminds me of driving through Malibu Canyon while I was pregnant with The Loudon.  It was in my questioning phase…what could I have done differently?  What can I do different now?  Who’s at fault?  I am to blame.

Hoobastank probably wrote this one about another strung out beyotch, but to me, most songs are about my boys.  lol

I’m not a perfect person
There’s many things I wish I didn’t do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I’m sorry that I hurt you
It’s something I must live with every day
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That’s why I need you to hear

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you [x4]

I’m not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I’ve found a reason to show
A side of me you didn’t know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Is He For Real?

piranha

When I was in Kindergarten, I ate the paste (well, Ro does that too, but that’s another post).  I certainly didn’t know how to do any pirahna addition and subtraction. 

How’s Mama going to help this kid with homework in 4th grade?

Wait…he won’t need help!  That’s right!  Sweet!
