The biggest hardship for him has been the "no crunchy foods" rule. This kid loves his pretzels and popcorn!
I thought the promise of all the pudding and ice cream he could eat on the first day would be appealing to him, but he sadly informed me that what he really wanted was a hamburger.
Pudding is a huge favorite in our house, though! Because of poor lactose intolerant Alan, I had to take to storing it in the basement and only bringing up 4 little cups at a time or else he would eat it until he had lower end problems.
Joe was helpful enough to go downstairs and bring up a couple of packages and put them in the pantry.
On Saturday, he went into the pantry to have some and snapped the two attached cups apart and Alan leaped off the couch. It was obvious he recognized the sound and like any well trained animal he went immediately "on point".
DH said it reminded him of Dug from the movie Up. "Squirrel!!!" Yep.
