Just an update from this morning. Mik came home nearly in tears and told us he'd had to turn down popsicles, pizza, and ice cream (from our favorite place) at school today. Apparently the school had planned on pizza being lunch, and he had to ask for special permission to go back inside and get his bag of fruits and vegetables. He didn't feel like explaining what he was doing to the other kids, and they pestered him about it all day. He said it was the worst day of school he ever had.

I keep trying to remind myself that it is NOT a tragedy that a happy, well-fed child getting an excellent education in a free country had to decline some "food" that is making him sick, but whoa. That had to suuuuuuck. He's got two and a half more days of school and a birthday party after school on Friday. This had better work.


  1. Tell him to keep his chin up! If you had one piece of advice for IM CDA, what would it be?

  2. Hmmm. Swim to the outside to avoid the logjam at the first buoy, take the first lap pretty easy on the bike course because the hills are tougher than they look (although the course has changed), and consider having a jacket around your waist or in your special needs bag on the run, because the temperature can drop quickly when it gets dark. Or are you finishing before that point? Good luck! Do you have a blog?
