My Vegetarian Toddler
A Chillicothe native, I am a wife and mother of two. Graduating from Missouri Western with an English/Journalism/Public Relations degree in 2003, I worked for the Constitution-Tribune for over six years. Over the last year, our family has faced some struggles with a daughter who has very special dietary needs. I am constantly looking at new ways to bring dinner to our table and experimenting with little to no protein for my girl.

Well, it seems when you have multiple children and one happens to have health issues (i.e., my vegetarian toddler who is B12 deficient and protein controlled) you worry less about the “healthy” one. Both of my children are an absolute blessing, both born prematurely. I’ve spent many nights with both of them in the NICU and still hold them close when a fever is near.


After spending some time in the ER with my “healthy” child, my eyes are open to never underestimate what can happen on either side.


Health isn’t necessarily a condition, disease or disorder. Sometimes health can come with the most extreme conditions. Health isn’t always a perfect picture.


So for those of you out there that may have one child who isn’t the picture of “health” and oftentimes like myself keep a closer watch, just be sure and look in the direction of “health” and be sure that “health” is okay too.


So what will I do tonight when I go to bed? Well, same as always: I’ll check on BOTH of them.
