So, our 10 year old was worried about what the Easter Bunny would stuff in his eggs for Easter. He said, “Just in case he can not find anything, Mom, can we go to the gluten free bakery?”
What a great idea! And so we did! The gluten free Bakery is on North High Street in Clintonville. It is a business by and for autistic kids/young adults.
After loading up big time our son left while beaming brightly over his whole face! Yes, the Goodies are one thing, but there’s more to it. The kids working there often have autism themselves. So my son says “I really feel good going here and I really like all the people here too.”
Our son is very high functioning and we are in the beginning still. Most likely still to see a few different opinions, but his behaviors and the tools and techniques all sends out the same messages. We have had requests and referrals to have him evaluated by out patient counselor, pediatrician and school support team.
Back to the bakery, one of the boys (young adult) had on a bow tie and bunny ears. My son and him had a lot in common, especially their love for ‘Yoshi’. He told us how he made the Yoshi Easter Egg cookies, and that the polka dots on them are to look like Yoshi’s island. And they do! Check out our photo’s below. We were also told that he had received the Yoshi Cookie Cutter as a present for Christmas this past year. Awesome!
Leaving the bakery and walking to the parking lot our son says “I think he dressed like this because he is a friend of Peter Cottontail. What do you think?”
Now to what to see in the pictures below, we cleaned them out – almost!
Peanut Butter Cookies, Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies, Brownies, Walnut Brownies, Lemon Bars, THE BEST PECAN PIE, Orange Sunshine Muffin, Apple Cinnamon Muffin, Easter Egg Nest Cupcake, Yoshi Egg Cookie and a Buckeye – ALL GLUTEN FREE AND SUPER DELICIOUS!
