Food policeman

Kells went to my last OB appointment and at that appointment I was very disappointed to find out I had gained 8lbs in 2 weeks. Seriously!!? Well, my doctor grabbed my leg and said "there's 5lbs of it right there" and proceeded to put me on a salt restriction. Fast forward to 3 days ago. Luke made dinner (thank you very much honey!) and it was great. He made steak stir-fry. Half-way through the meal (in which I had no rice because I'm also on carb restriction due to gestational diabetes) Luke made the comment "It's a little salty." It was a teeny bit salty but no big deal. He hadn't used salt, he had used fish sauce (which of course has salt in it), but he made me dinner and I was going to eat it.....until he said that. Because once he said that Kells dropped his fork and turned to me with huge eyes and said "You can't have salt!" He then continued to stare at me with an open mouth until I shoved my plate away. I'm just hoping my doctor doesn't give me anymore restrictions at my appointment today because Kells will be there and I'm sure my son will keep me on the straight and narrow if he knows about what I am and am not suppose to be ingesting.

OMG that is awesome!

#1 that Luke made you dinner

#2 that Kells LISTENED to the doctor.

#3 that he retained it until he got to dinner

#4 that he cares enough about his mommy to notice she's eating some salty food :)

Love it all.

Oh no! He has retained it for 3 weeks!! My doctor gave him 2 extra stickers for being such a good little spy on Friday as well.

Ha ha ha! That Kells is so cute! You need to send him over my way so he can tell me to stop eating chocolate, fried foods, and all that other bad stuff so I could lose weight.

You would have to have a doctor tell you to not eat this stuff or someone of authority with him around to hear it. Next time we're all together, have Dad tell you you can't eat those things and see what he does if you put a piece of chocolate by your mouth.
