He was a little nonplussed with the tooth fairy's dollar that she left during the night though. Apparently she's a lot more generous with some other kids in his class. Oh, well!
still has his! It's pretty solidly in there, and no visible blackening anywhere so far. I don't have a picture of the tooth, but I do have one of Gandalf the White playing Angry Birds on the kindle. This picture just makes me smile.
Also this week, I discovered an awesome breakfast that works with my gestational diabetes. I'm so used to eggs and meat, that something a little sweeter was like manna from heaven. I used this recipe for Cream Cheese Pancakes and made whipped cream (sweetened with just a little Truvia) and strawberries to top it off. Not only was it filling and completely satisfying, but when I checked my blood sugar an hour later, it was lower than what my fasting limit needs to be at!
I'm still trying to decide how I feel about using artificial sweeteners. I guess I use them with a lot of moderation, which I think is fine. They can be really nice to have around!
