I don't want to be one of those moms where people have to worry what they feed my kids. My kids don't spend a lot of time away from our home, but when they do, and when someone is gracious enough to help care for my sweet cherubs, I don't want them to feel nervous or anxious about the Haner kids' diet or having to make something special for them.
I want my kids to eat cupcakes and cookies at Grandma's...
And juice boxes at their rich friends' houses...(like only rich kids drink juice boxes! LOL!)
And S'mores at the Ranch.
You know what I mean?
So, if my kid comes to your house, don't worry! They don't have to have carrot sticks and Fiber One (also a form of stick.)
I wanted to make a change to their diet at home so that I DON'T worry when they are eating four cupcakes at a party--because I know it's the EXCEPTION.
I would probably be more of a purist if my kid had an adverse reaction to sugar (like freaking out and running in circles for four hours.) Or if they had allergies...that made them have runny poo or something...
But they don't. In fact, after they have a bunch of sugar, they usually complain of a tummy ache and their blood sugar crashes shortly thereafter, making them take a great nap! Bonus! :)
Just keepin' it real.
