We enjoyed a pool play date today with friends, and friends of friends. On of the little guys we were swimming with has food allergies that make MAM’s look easy (no small feat, mind you). We played so much that all the kids were willing not only get out of the pool for lunch, but to actually be seated and eat (again, no small feat).
MAM and her new friend sat next to each other, and noticed that his bread looked similar to hers. Here’s their conversation:
MAM: “You got rice bread?”
lil pal: “Yup.”
MAM: “I got rice bread. Mama, he got rice bread!! What you got on you rice bread?”
lil pal: “sunbutter and jelly”
MAM: “I got jelly. What you drink?”
lil pal: “Rice milk”
MAM:”I drink rice milk. Mama, he drink rice milk!”
She beamed at him like she’d found the comrade she’s been looking for and….ate.her.entire.lunch. (no small feat) This is a friend we will need to see again!
