It is very quiet around here as both of our boys are staying the night with friends. My oldest son is gluten free and lactose free and so he packed a small cooler of food. My friend offered to buy him whatever he needed, but I know that she doesn't normally shop in the grocery store in our town that stocks the most specialty foods and I also know that special foods are expensive. He took some leftovers from our lunch, a carton of lactose free milk and a box of gluten free Chex. This is the first official sleepover for my youngest. They all 3 stayed with this same friend a few years ago when I had surgery, but that's the only time for him. He was packed and ready to go by 3:00 o'clock in the afternoon, having finished all of his school-work. He even had everything already in the car by that time. Can you tell he was excited to go?
