I used to obsess over what Monkey ate and tried desperately to avoid all forms of sugar for fear of turning him into a rotten-toothed, hyper, delinquent toddler. Well, I recently had an epiphany. I realized that I was depriving my little guy of some of the best treats in the world for kids. Think decadent ice cream, pretty cupcakes, celebrated birthday cake and yummy cookies.
So, I've changed my tune. I will still obsess over giving him organic and unprocessed food at home, but I will also happily give him little scoops of ice cream this summer. There's no way that I could survive without ice cream, so why should Monkey be any different?
