About Me

This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Like "Alfalfa"..

Sometimes kids say the 'dardnest' thangs.. (quote from Art Linkletter here).. If you old enough to remember Art AND remember Alfalfa, from 'Our Gang.'..and "ALF" then you'll appreciate this tiny story...

My 9 year old said the kids at school were calling him "Alfalfa" , and 'why would they call him a plant ??"... So I tried to explain to him that plants have many qualities, etc. but that was NOT why they were calling him that, and proceeded to google "Alfalfa" and showed him who the kid was. His 'HAIR STICKING STRAIGHT UP' That got him the name, because our son has had hair like that since he was a baby, it just sticks straight up, unless you put some detangling cream or something in it every morning.

So then I showed him "ALF"... and he laughed at our space alien friends looks.... So when they call him "Alfalfa'., and can shoot back with "ALF"..

YES, I explained to him that name calling is NOT a good thing and they were making fun of him, and he knows its all in jest.... so... let THEM google "ALF".. LOL
Have a Blessed Day !!

Don't you just LOVE kids. Your little one sounds like he can be a lot of fun to be around. I'm glad you showed him how to handle that negativity. Good Job Mom!

You just tell your son that one day, he'll wish people would still call him "Alfalfa". Most men are deprived of that honor as their age advances and their hairlines recede! :)
