Cindy, Your statement:
"But if things are working and working well (IMHO), why change them?"
Reminded me of this:
A while back, after an incident with family where I was being accused of being over-the-top precautious and briefly considered lowering the bar, my very best friend asked me to consider this: "If Manuel is still alive and well and reaction free for 2 years, then you must be doing things right. Right?" I had to agree she had a point.
If it feels right to adjust your comfort levels, then maybe it's time. But, if it still makes you nervous, follow your gut. You know Moms always have that 6th sense. Hopefully, this doesn't come across as preachy, only supportive. I admire that you have set the rules and stuck with them. I agree that of utmost importance is for a child to feel safe in their own home. I also admire you for thinking thru the decision to adjust or not to adjust so thoroughly.

Hi Cindy,
I think she just wants to try the tree nuts to see what they taste like.. she will probably decide that she hasn't missed much. One idea is to let her try a Ferraro Rocher chocolate (they contain hazelnuts, no peanut warning). I have eaten them many times in the past.
As long as you tell her she must eat it outside of your home since yur home is a nut-free zone, I think everything will be fine. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I thought you were re-raising this one, simply because of Ian Dury?
