The epiphany finally came to me! Sat. at the Farmer's Market I bought a small bucket of plums. Kobee has discovered the joys of fruit this summer and he ate a good amount of those plums since I had them on a bowl on the counter top. Kobee insisted he go back to school despite his problem, so I wrote a note to his teacher asking her to let him use the restroom as often as needed.
I was curious as to how Kobee's teacher reacted when she read the note, so I asked him at dinner what she said. You'll have to use your imagination here, but she winked, put up her thumb and made a cute click with her mouth. Last night before bedtime Kobee announced, "Mom, I don't have diarrhea any more!"
We've enjoyed a lot of other fruits this summer as well. I picked up a case of peaches at Peterson's associated food store last week and I've been eating them like crazy. We're down to the last dozen in the bottom of the box and they're getting soft. I'm going to have to use the rest tonight. I've already made jam from the last box we bought, so I'm thinking about dehydrating the rest of these. The next batch of jam I make will be pumpkin jam!
