Friends Who Get It
Since I often hear about friends/family who don’t help accommodate people with food allergies, I thought I would spotlight a couple of my friends who recently stepped up to the plate.
One friend had us over for dinner, and she made sure to check that everything was safe for Joseph. She even made a quinoa dish, instead of something with rice or potatoes that I had suggested. Too bad Joseph didn’t appreciate it as much as I did. He’s started to enter the picky phase of toddler-hood.
Also recently, we went to a birthday celebration at my brother-in-laws. Before, I’ve always provided a treat for Joseph, and this time around, I had a couple cookies in my bag to give him. But they surprised me with a cake that my sister-in-law had made from a gluten-free mix and an experimental frosting made with shortening and banana. Joseph quite liked it, which makes me happy.
Little things like this make my day. It feels so nice to have my son included in everything. How has someone made your day recently?
