Hi Everyone!

My name is Heidi and I live in Eastern Canada. I have two children, Elijah - age 4 1/2 (PA diagnosed at 18 months) and Ezekiel - age 1 (don't know if he has PA or not, he'll be tested at age 3). Elijah also has asthma and environmental allergies.

We just started Elijah in kindergarten last week which has been extremely nervewracking. I've been lurking on the boards since then, gathering all of the valuable information I can! I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Welcome, Heidi! I hope Elijah's first week went smoothly.

Welcome Heidi!

I remember my PA influenced kindergarten years - they were rather awkward, but the problems only really started in the 3rd grade.

Thinking of kindergarten, has anyone considered contamination of climbing apparatus? I've never really thought of that before.

Welcome Heidi!

I remember my kindergarten years - not too eventful. The trouble really started in the third grade, when my friends wanted to 'see what happens'.

I never really think of it before, but do you think there could be any danger in contaminated kindergarten climbing apparatus? From smears of PB, I mean.
