Morning Coffee: Dollar General Sweepstakes

This one is for Kristin, who recommended Dollar General as a place to pick up cheap kids' toothpaste and toothbrushes. Alas, there's no Dollar General in LA. But Kristin, and those of you who have one nearby, may want to enter their Fresh Start Sweepstakes, which has over $400,000 in prizes. (Via Money Saving Mom.)

A new report that children with autism don't necessarily have dietary issues comes as no surprise to me. I'm sure that there are some children who benefit from adding or removing specific foods to and from their diet, but probably not more than the general population. My friend whose son is autistic tried some special diets with him at the direction of a nutritionist, and as my friend said, she adhered to the rules set by the nutritionist because she would have felt horribly guilty to learn down the line that dietary changes could have helped her son. But she didn't see a single ounce of change in him, so he's happily back to eating his usual fare.

    Thank you, Cathy! You're so sweet. Your blog is so much fun to read, I don't see how you devote so much time to all you have going on and still do such a good job. I think you must wear a Super Woman costume or something- a kid, a career, a husband and a great blog...I would have collapsed from exhaustion about oh, after a week!
