HE started bouncing this morning to a degree I haven’t seen for a while…since removing artificial dye and its artificial cohorts. There were occasional days where he was allowed, like Valentines Day, and one day was all he got. For the next 24-36 hours we had such a major noticeable difference in behavior, I’ve been more convinced that there is a need for keeping artificial dyes out of his diet.
So yesterday, without thinking, my darling man took the kids for a treat. Ice cream! How exciting. Except they picked the Bubblegum flavor which is packed with dyes of all sort.
Cue bouncing. Thankfully, the season is changing and we can say “Go bounce on the trampoline.” But when he has to focus inside we are met with bouncing and hopping and flapping of arms and HE doesn’t even notice.
He says “At least I’m happy!”
Detox includes lots of water. And lots of bouncing.
