Hi all! I'm new here, but my daughter has been diagnosed PA for 2 years now. It's so hard for me to think of her going to K this year, and so scary! Any tips on adjustment would be welcome. Her preschool has me completely comfortable (as much as possible, anyway) with the care they take with my daughter, and they've spoiled me! I was able to meet the school nurse last week at my daughter's new school (my new best friend?!) and she was encouragingly helpful and knowledgeable, but we always worry, right? Any tips on cafeteria food/peanut free tables, and what the heck to pack for lunch are appreciated! (why do they put candy in those Lunchables!?!?!)

Well, I guess I am the Welcome Wagon this afternoon! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Welcome, Beth!
Be sure to check out the "schools" forum. Many many many parents here have great advice on how to handle some of the worst moments of this transition!
(Unfortunately for you, I am not one of them right now.... but I didn't want you to think you were going unnoticed!)
I sincerely hope that all goes well- it sounds like you have made a wonderful start already! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I will know who to ask in another couple of years!
Again- a warm welcome to you, Beth. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
