tis the season to party and all the extra work that brings for parents.
My children have finished school for christmas, and I have just finished most of the shopping.
Here is a list of the past two weeks christmas parties that have involved me talking to party hosts, providing safe food and spending far too long explaining things to teachers!!
school christmas lunch ( school cook really works hard so that William can eat a safe meal at school once a year!)
school trip to pantomine, providing safe snack, (they now have plain ice cream, one year they had a mixture of bite sized chocolate bars..........some snickers , oooh, not nice at all!!!)
school christmas party. All parents informed that no food with nuts to come to school. As william is 7 , I had a brief word with teachers, and he is confident that he can pick safe food. ( he knows that most chocolate biscuits contain nut traces etc) The children are allowed to pick 4 foods , William picked out safe ones and was happy with this.
present from class teacher, small chocolate for tree. Hmmm not safe, william brings home and swops for kit kat. ( shame, but, well , thats life )
party for beavers, food safe, William could enjoy!!! ( lots of reading for me!)
church sunday school party again , was there to check food, only 2 foods contained nut traces, avoided egg sandwiches , William happy.
Now that school term has ended, now to start on the christmas food, going to BIL for dinner , and I am providing some food,and bringing some safe food for william.
I have found a nut free christmas pud, and some chocolate for the tree, and now must find time to get nut free christmas cake from Marks and spencer!!
All this extra work just so william can enjoy what all the other children take for granted.
I dont resent it , I am just plain exhausted!!!
happy christmas everyone!, and parents, give yourself a pat on the back , we work harder at this time of year than most parents I am sure!!!
