Domino’s pizza party accompanying divine Oreo shakes,
The hell lot of sweets besides loaded birthday cakes.
Ahhh!! Utter Bliss for all kids.
But my son, he can’t even tap that single piece.
And that’s our life greatest tease.
Our whole world turned upside down by this news
When Dev was diagnosed with celiac blues.
R.S.V.P. to all the party food,
No wheat, no gluten to include.
It was hard, very hard to accept this fact, and as a mom it just broke my heart !!!
An autoimmune disease with no significant treatment
For him it’s a whole life agreement
All the junkies will be gone from his plate
No food sharing with any of his mates
Our universe shook hearing about this disease
On that instance my life just ceased
But looking into the eyes of my 3 years old child gave me the strength.
Leaving the roller coaster of emotions behind,
We all started to set our minds
Plastering our faces with a smile,
We took a positive spin on gluten free,
Now the battle with allergens began
Thereof every bit entered my kitchen with a scan.
We decided that his special diet will never roadblock anything he wants to do,
I make all possible eatable that I could do.
Everything is homemade, from pizzas to cakes to breads to cookies
So that he enjoys the parties with all the goodies.
Our holidays are dictated by his GF food but we still enjoy
We cruise away the outside delicacies and make family time more fun.
His school authorities are well informed and friends too
Everyone takes care of him, enjoying times without exchange of food.
Merry times are not only to eat, it’s much more than that,
We make this understand to him, so that he enjoy his life’s match.
As a parent we need to nurture not only his heart and soul but his body too
Challenge is to make him alive just like me and you
That constant looming fear has started blowing away
As he is getting better day by day.
