The Food Allergy Goes to Preschool

I went to pick up Bug from his preschool class the other day (he was in a much better mood, thank heavens) and found him playing two other little boys in the play house area. Each of them was toting a baby around protectively. A little girl stood by watching – she, apparently, was not […]

I Guess Brunch is Out

Bug had his allergy check-up this week. His blood tests for eggs were negative, but he had shown a strong skin reaction. Still, the allergist suggested that we try giving him a cookie or other baked good with eggs. I started envisioning breakfast out for pancakes (made with eggs) or waffles (made with eggs) or […]

Food Allergy Awareness

From those who worry about their children’s health and well-being to those who believe their children should have a right to eat whatever they want, it’s a tug-of-war of liberties.

FAAN Food Allergy Walk

My family has decided to do the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) walk to raise money for food allergy awareness and research. It’s only two miles, so Bug will walk, too, and LadyBug will do it in the stroller. It’s in a couple of weeks and I’m looking forward to it. Having a child […]
