New class, new teacher, new stress!
Hi everyone. My son moved into the 3 year old room at day care today. He will be 3 on Sunday. The first thing we saw when we walked into the room was a little girl eating peanut butter crackers. So I immediately explained the severity of my son's allergy to his new teacher, etc. etc. She was very cooperative and put the crackers up and washed the girl's hands and the table where she was sitting. She made a big note that said "No peanuts or other nuts" and taped it up on his little cubby hole. It really stressed me out though because his old teachers in his 2 year old room were very aware and very helpful and now I've got to train a new teacher. But guess what? I will be doing this every year for many years so I better get used to it. My day care actually doesn't even serve nuts anymore just because of my son ( he is the only pa kid there). However, this girl had brought the crackers with her for breakfast. I'm trying to teach my son to just stay away from kids that are eating anything he isn't sure about because I can't always be there to run interference. Just wanted to vent a little.
