home is nut free--peanut free only...we allow tree nuts and we allow processed at a plant that uses nuts....she ingests all of it.
non pa twin will eat pb+j and nuts probably only when out with me alone or with nana or babysitter....i will keep non pa sib on peanuts.
at a point in the future she will probably be allowed to eat pb+j at home-maybe...not out of the question-but have several years b4 that may happen bc i don't want pa dd to resent her ability to eat it.

You are right. You have to do what will work for you. However, your comfort zone will probably be an ever changing thing. My zone is definetly not what it was when we started 7 years ago. New reactions, new allergies, new situations, ect... All of these things will color how you feel in the coming years. We have started allowing more people to take part in her care. We eat out most meals each week due to gymnastics, softball, cub scouts, PTO and so forth. I have been leaving her at the gym for short periods (with trained coaches and epi-pens-of course). Most of these things I would never have considered earlier. We eat out, go on vacation and do all of the fun family things that we did before. We just have a few more details to clarify. The only thing that I won't do is peanuts in the house and may contains. These decisions were because of my experiences. You will find that these life experiences will mold how you feel in the coming years. You will do what is best for your child and your family. Good Luck.

shuleran: you are right- and i agree that my comfort level will change over the years and hopefully, will not be bc of reactions, but it may...it can go either way-either more relaxed or more vigilant...she is only 3 and we have so much in life to do-so many other experiences and vacations and classes and school and camp=--so each new thing will bring it's own challenges and i will adapt accordingly...
camp knows...school knows...her soccer coach knows..she will be alone in school and camp and who knows where else...that is scary-but we will 'get over it' and she is remain growing up to be a mart independent little girl!
