{Husband's Letters}

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, your desire to eat healthier has given our refrigerator more color than a crayon box. So proud of you! Dear Little Patient, you kicked me in the teeth the other day because I was trying to look in your ears. I can see how scary it might be to have someone stick a pointy light in your head. Dear PriusC, after several great suggestions from our readers on what to call you I thought it was only fitting to chose a hybrid version of the names suggested. Without further adieu, I introduce the "The Rickshaw," in honor of Rick our sales associate. Dear Emma, every time I see you wearing your earrings from Uganda I can't help but smile. Such great memories!  

Over and out,
Tim

Overview: So far, I'm much more aware of when I'm hungry. I've also had headaches all. day. long. (dern sugar detox), and yesterday evening I was ready for bed at 8:30pm. Here's to hoping I have more energy today! I'll also be sharing some of my favorite Whole30 recipes on the blog over the next few weeks. Feel free to email me your favorites as well!

great name!

JR said...

Tim, I must humbly conced that "The Rickshaw" is even BETTER than "The Rick Roller". Love it. Well done. :)

JR, the Rick Roller was by far my most favorite name suggested. In fact, I called it that for two days before Tim descided on The Rickshaw. Tim picked up his car yesterday from getting tinted and told Rick about the name you suggested. He loved it!

Lisa said...

Love the name! Btw, VERY interested in hearing reading your updates on doing Whole30. I've been thinking about doing it and curious how it will work for you guys. (ps- you blog is my first "breakfast" every day. thank you!)

Tim - As a future child life specialist, it is extremely encouraging to see medical professionals with such an understanding attitude! Sorry you got kicked in the teeth though, ouch. Kids will do ANYTHING to avoid being poked and prodded. Keep up the great work and compassionate care! We need more people like you in healthcare :)

Jenn Dawkins said...

I'm glad my little patient didn't kick you in the mouth when you were stitching her chin up on Sunday evening. :) however, your hearing might still be a little affected from her screaming. Thanks for being so sweet to our little one.

Katie, I've always been impressed by CLS. They are so in tune with mind of a child. I used to work at a children's hospital and watched the CLS's do amazing work with anxious kids. Even when they were working with babies, they managed to bring comfort and peace. Strong work! Thanks for your comment!

Jenn, my hearing is fine. It was my pleasure to help your little girl. Stitches are traumatic for little ones. Thanks for being supportive parents!

YES! Love seeing more and more people that aren't crossfit oriented ( or are you?) do Paleo! I am pregnant and we are strictly Whole 30+++++ here. We have been Paleo for the past 4+ years. HAS CHANGED OUR LIVES. Have you looked at Nom Nom Paleo? If you have an Ipad she has an ipad app. Beautiful and nom nom.

Today's Letters said...

cruz, not crossfit. we just won an ipad a few weeks ago so i'll be sure and download the nom nom app! thanks!

Greta said...

Your recipes from Whole30 Day 1 sound delicious. I'd love to hear which ones you like or didn't like as much, and any comments on making them! I think I'll try Whole30 but, like you, I think I'll struggle to find energy at first...
