Taking PA kids to birthday parties is always a fun topic.
We were recently invited to a birthday party for the neighbor boy, and DD (age 3) was excited to go.
Our neighbors (a doctor and a pharmacist) were aware of her peanut allergy, but had vietnamese spring rolls with peanut sauce and chopped peanuts to eat, and handed out Baskin Robbins gift certificates for favors.
Thankfully everthing worked out ok. None of the kids were eating the food, and the adults weren't near the area where kids were playing, so we decided to keep DD in the backyard where the kiddie pool was.
We left before cake.
However, I realize that my daughter is only 3, and while she doesn't mind now, I know there will be many parties where she can't go or can't stay because it isn't safe.
I just don't look forward to her being dissappointed. If a doctor and pharmacist don't get it, I know I can't expect much better.
