I was so pleasantly surprised when a mom approached my friend and I and inquired if any of our children had a peanut allergy! Her son was going to play with them and she then whisked him away and washed him up meticulously. I apprached her when I had the chance(I was feeding baby), and thanked her and said how nice it was for her to have asked. Unfortunately for her, she has a fatal tree nut allergy, but not to peanuts, expalining her sensetivity.

It was nice to know there was also an extra pair of eyes. The pool is a scary place at times. She said she has seen Moms wash kids up in the pool after eating PB!

Oh, and if you are a member here, thanks again and see you tomorrow. [img][/img]
