Runnin' to the Border
(Warning: do not eat while reading today's post.)
I'm just going to cut right to the chase and say it: Little Guy has been having some trouble pooping lately. Actually, he's been having a LOT of trouble for the last three months. Without going into the gory details, it has been really troublesome and we have been trying EVERYTHING - prunes, prune juice, liquids, cutting out the sugar and refined flour products, more fruits, probiotics...nothing seemed to be helping. Then yesterday, I happened to get Little Guy a taco at Taco Bell. It was the first time I've ever given him fast food and I felt TOTALLY guilty about it, but....guess what? 30 minutes after he ate the taco...POOP! A big one! I couldn't believe it. It had been TWO WEEKS since he had a real poop (not counting the little itty bitty ones he had been having). I was like jumping up and down. After all this time of trying to adjust his diet, add fiber, fruits, water, veggies, after almost having to give my kid an ENEMA (*shudder*), it was the damn Taco Bell taco that did it.
Why the hell didn't I think of it sooner? I can see their new slogan now: Taco Bell - the cure to any kid's chronic constipation - only 89 cents and no waiting hours to see a doctor! Who could ask for more.
