Challenges

I love the holidays and getting together with family. For us it usually means some sort of meal at another family members house because ours is too small. I always stress my self out because of Lani's allergies to milk, eggs, and beef. She can have milk and eggs cooked into certain foods, but if you were to mix the scrambled eggs with a spatula than flip pancakes they are now contaminated and Lani can no longer eat them. I can't even imagine how hard it is going to be when she heads off to preschool. I just hope that she grows out of it by then.

Oh man! I have never envied a family that has to go through food allergies. I hope she grows out of it too, it would be a pain once in school. Happy Easter to you and your family.

Allergies are no fun! I was allergic to ANYTHING with ANY milk in it until I was about 14...then I finally outgrew it. So far Tate has only reacted to actual eggs (not eggs in stuff) - like scrambled eggs or boiled eggs...so we're just avoiding those until he's 2 and then we might try again...

Relating!
Luke's school has been really open about the whole allergy thing. I think tons of kids are tending to have allergies these days so they are used to it. But yes, it would be easier, no doubt, if we didn't have to deal with them at all! Happy Easter!

I can only imagine the stress you must have with Lani's allergies! I know I get stressed when I'm going somewhere & I don't know if I'll have to turn right around & leave because of perfume or something but I think those situations are so much worse when it's our children.

I hope you still have a fabulous Easter!

I have a friend allergic to nuts, and I know how hard it is to avoid contamination.

Hope all goes well.

If Lani doesn't grow out of her food allergies by the time she starts school,then you'll just pack her lunch and let her teachers know she's not allowed to have outside food. I did teach preschool for a while in college, and we were very cautious about kids' allergies....believe me, these schools don't want a lawsuit on their hands.
