Wine and Wheat

What does wine have to do with wheat? When you're a kid with Celiac disease - a lot!

Kayla was grocery shopping with me one day. I picked up a bottle of wine (darn those enticing displays for spontaneous purchases!) and Kayla said,

"Ooooh what's that?"
Me, "Wine."
Kayla, sounding excited, "Oh yeah, wine! I want wine!"
Me, "No Kayla, you can't have wine."
Kayla, sounding dejected, "Oh, it has wheat?"

I guess she is so used to hearing she can't have something because it has wheat that this was a natural connection for her to make! Sure Kayla, you can't have wine because it has wheat ... and nothing at all to do with your age! Ha!

J has said the same thing to me. Too funny. I guess they get told no so much because of wheat, they assume everything they can't have has wheat in it :)
