Sydney was sick off and on for well over a week. We just couldn't get her stomach right. The doctor had me keep her on a strict starchy diet. No fruit (except bananas), no veggies, no dairy. Only bread, cereal, noodles and all other things starchy. She has been doing much better now for a couple of days and is allowed to eat normal - Hooray! Unfortunately, her week of sickness diet was very habit-forming. She doesn't want to eat real meals, she just wants to walk around with dry cereal all day. I also let her get away with too much whining, sassing, and melting down this week because she is a real bear today. Anyway, we will get over it and she will get back to normal but it just made me think . . . what have I done all week that is becoming a habit? What have I let my kids do all week that might come back to bite me in the butt? Yikes.

Oh the whining. Does it ever stop? And please tell me boys are less whiny than girls. I am so afraid for the teenage years because Elliot is too emotional and dramatic at 3, what happens at 13 and hormones added?
