Positive Birthday experience

Publish date:
Updated on

So many posts are are grave in nature b/c so many people are uneducated about the dangers of PN.

My PA 3yo had two birthdays this month. BOTH parents made sure their entire menu was peanut free! They called me, they checked, they called bakers, demanded to know all ingredients, including specific oils used! Neither family had dealt with PA before they met me! UNBELIEVABLE!

In a time when I felt people would be shunning him, two families have embraced this!

And a third mom just told me she has decided to switch to Sunbutter for her 2 and 4 yo children based on what she has learned from me!

YEAH! SOme people get it! All the hard work you have been doing here is getting through to SOME people!

Another mom yesterday said to me *she is a chef*..."People just don't understand how serious the PA is!" I hugged her!

Just wanted to share something GOOD!

[b]YEAH YAHOO [/b]

Isn't it nice to know that there are people out there that want to help keep our kids safe.

Wait till you see how the kids are with your children. The kids get it so much more than the parents do. All of the kids in my ds's class are very protective of my son. They watch over him like a hawk. It gives me chills. Our PTO also avoids peanuts when we have food days.

best wishes,

3xy1PAinNH, great stuff! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I have been very fortunate to have wonderful, caring people come into our lives, through the years, and had very similar experiences. I can remember two women, in particular, when we lived in Stayner, who made sure that my guy could attend birthday parties at their homes, without worry. Then, the first birthday party invite my guy got when we moved to Belleville, the same thing. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I think that's the wonderful part about this journey - you do find that there are absolutely incredible people out there.

I'm so pleased you've been blessed with this fairly early on.

Renee, did you change your UserName?

My chapter of Mom's Club made me feel wonderful when they decided one event per week would be food free. I cried! My husband's family doesn't get it, but yet a large group of women understand why I go bananas! It's not just about nuts for us, Aiden has multiple food allergies so I got to the point where we wouldn't go to many of the events. Gee, I joined Mom's Club to get out and wouldn't go because toddlers are sloppy eaters and my son eats like the dog - off the floor!

Speaking of birthdays, you just totally reminded me that Imajine That, which is located in Lawrence, MA, is an indoor-play facility that strives to make sure no peanut-containing food comes into their facility. They serve Sal's pizza, which is safe. We have been to two birthday parties there and my daughter had a great time. And both times, we have had parents who made sure the cake/cupcakes were safe. It's nice to know there are responsible parents out there.

Nellymom-I called Sal's Pizza in Nashua and they said they use peanut oil (this was about 1 yr ago). I wonder if they have changed their ingredients not to include peanut oil.

Thanks for the info about Imaginethat.
