It is good to know certain truths in life: 1- don’t spit out the window forward in a moving car, 2- don’t lie to your children, and 3- don’t eat a bunch of fiber if you have crohn’s disease. Which leads to how I know the third is true.
J (the eldest) made chocolate and pb haystacks (with lowfat pb and all-bran). I have an uncontrollable urge to eat chocolate and peanut butter. I am seven years in remission from Crohn’s. I ate one and NOTHING happened.
Fast forward to the next day. I am cooking chili at the other child’s (k) home. I spy some of said haystack candy on counter. I ate one thinking that if one was did no harm… Later, I ate another. J came in and I informed her that I may have eaten a piece of candy.
J: “That’s is okay I made them five, that leaves four.”
J: “I can’t believe you.”
Me: “Yes. Yes you can, I don’t lie to my kids.”
J: “That is NOT what I meant. I can’t believe you sat there and ate two things full of peanut butter and all bran. What were you thinking?”
Me: “They were good? Besides, I was standing.”
Later, I was not standing. I can’t believe me either.
