Dear Vanilla Oreos, Pop Tarts, and Candy,

When I found out Bo had a milk soy protein intolerance (MSPI), I was super bummed.  Not only for the poor little guy and how awful it made him feel, but because I was nursing and this meant I had to give up all dairy, soy, including all hidden sources of dairy and soy.  (Don't get me started on all the hidden sources; it's in everything.)

But one of the things I was pumped about was hearing that moms who eat this way get super skinny.  Score!  There would be an upside to my no pizza/bread/ice cream eating tragedy.  I did what I do best when I found out of the MSPI...I mercilessly researched what foods had the offending ingredients and what did not.

I reasoned I could indulge in some products I hadn't binged on since college since I was, after all, giving up said pizza/bread/ice cream.  What I didn't know was that you would become a food group all your own.

 I have a love hate relationship with you.  It's because of you that I am able to withstand this bland eating experience.  However, it's also because of you that I still carry 5 pounds of baby weight around (not to mention the 15 I needed to lose before I ever got pregnant).

Thanks for spicing up my otherwise bland diet, but I hope our relationship ends soon and you take about 20 pounds with you when you go...

  1. Mindi,

    I love watching that little boy grow. He is just the cutest little thing. I am jealous, only 5 lbs to go? WOW. My little Coy boy is 3 months old, and I believe we were due around the same time as you all. Anyways God is so good, isn't He! I feel close to you all just b/c you are such great friends to my brother and Christine. Thanks for always being there for them.
