Today I watched as my 4 and 5 year olds finished up their sandwiches - crumbs everywhere!! Faces, hands, floor. Yesterday, I had to stop my daughter dipping her biscuit in my coffee, something that had been a daily ritual pre-diagnosis. Guess I'm still just getting used to the little things. And I guess my little things need to get used to some changes too!

Mine are 3 and 5! It is taking a while to all get used to it - like that mum isn't going to stop halfway through breakfast to cut up toast or pick that pasta off the floor.

I have a slightly confusing system of cleaning cloths e.g. for wiping the table. Then there's those sticky hugs heading towards you...

I just realized their snacks are getting all over the stroller.

My 5 year old is really sweet, we get to share comparisons of what we can eat (he is nut free) and he looks out for me, and has started asking other people if things are gluten-free.

We all get to learn together I guess :)

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
