  1. Oh, Alison! I'm so sorry you had such a trying weekend. Maybe you can get a good little nap today. In Missouri it's all cloudy, chilly, and dark! Take care. I'm glad you found the root of the problem, but how irritating they don't look at your guidelines better for feeding Finley@!
    Love, Gayla

  2. Oh how ridiculous you keep having to hammer home to these people that Finley has some special needs! Did you tell them you were up all night with him vomiting? Today we had a meeting for Angus’ kindy which he starts next year. We were advised that there is a child in another group who has anaphylaxis … the kindy have been given a list of foods the child CAN eat rather than the CAN’Ts to let you know just how severe this little one is. The worst of all offenders for this child is milk … so NO children are to bring milk or peanut butter sandwiches next year … a list will shortly follow advising parents of other foods which will be banned … Because if this child happens to touch a puzzle or toy that another child who has one of the offending foods on their hands, he/she (we’re not told the name) is at severe risk of death. I know Finley’s situation isn’t as severe Alison but oh my gosh it’s still serious enough to warrant their absolute diligence. Of course there are always a few mutters from one or two parents about it being unfair that their child can’t have peanut butter sandwiches for lunch (etc) but most think it’s a small price to pay for the child’s safety and the parent’s peace of mind. Insist Alison. Insist.
