GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

another {parenting} adventure

it was an interesting afternoon.

i took cj to see our family chiropractor today. both T and i had been in earlier this week for adjustments, and i took the opportunity to ask a few key questions about cj while we were there. {he doesnt' sleep well and he doesn't eat healthy foods...specifically any fresh fruit or veggies.} the chiropractor suggested i bring him back for his own appointment. so i scheduled it for today.

i was a little uncertain about bringing a 3-year-old in for an adjustment, but i've heard others talk of having their children in for adjustments so i went ahead to see what, if anything, could be done to help him sleep better and eat right.

ultimately, my baby boy was in need of multiple adjustments. he did so well! {mommy did too!} he just looked at me like "what is going on here?" but didn't cry or act scared at all. the chiropractor also recommended some supplements: a wholefood-derived multivitamin and calcium.

so we now have new chewable multivitamins that we'll start giving him in a couple days. {bye bye flintstones chewables!} and as for the calcium, the rest of us try to take it regularly already, so i just need to figure out a way to get him to ingest it too.

i'm hoping and praying that the adjustments will help him sleep better, and that he'll start to realize that fruit and veggies are actually quite good tasting! if i don't see improvement in a week, the chiropractor asked that i bring him back.

i really hope i don't have to.
