Normally, M being out of town means that I can eat pretty much whatever I want, and I usually take advantage of these times to eat veggies and beans, both of which he's loath to eat. Long story short, I ate almost nothing but broccoli and beans Monday and Tuesday. I only stopped yesterday because I'd eaten all of both, and M was home for dinner. While the super dose of fiber didn't affect me so much, the wee one has had some serious gas issues. Serious. When she kept tooting yesterday, I attributed it to the fact that she hadn't pooped in close to a week, and (according to hubby) toots are the poop's little cries for help. I was confused when she kept waking up last night wailing and tooting. It hit me like a ton of bricks at 5:30 this morning as the little booger kept flailing around, kicking me in the mouth, and passing gas. Duh. I had overloaded her little system with BROCCOLI AND BEANS. I might as well have injected her with gas. Poor thing. Luckily, I think the gas has just about run it's hysterically smelly course. I think I'll have mashed potatoes or something horribly bland for dinner. I was going to have sweet potatoes and zucchini (M is out of town again), but I'm afraid of what I'm doing to my daughter with all the healthiness.
She's taking a nap now, so I'm going to make dough for shortbread. Yum. I'm excited already.
