pMy son is almost 5 and will begin school next Fall. While he currently attends a peanut-free daycare, I have not worried (too) much because they have been attentive and responsible. However, my productivity and attitude in general at work has significantly taken a nosedive lately as I'm beginning to worry myself sick about Alan beginning school next year. /p
pI'm extremely close to quitting my job and taking on the effort of fighting local school nutritionists and parents to keep peanuts out . I know the road will be a long one, and I desperately need other parents to talk to./p
pSome days I feel like it's almost hopeless - the battle can't even be fought before people are educated. Parents tend to worry only about their own children, and I've seen the argument recently that they can't be dictated to when it comes to the foods their children bring to school. /p
pI am interested in starting a local chapter to fight this ignorance and self-centered attitude. If I must quit my job and drop out of the masters degree program I'm currently enrolled in, then I will. But, even so, I can't do this alone./p
pI live in Chesterfield County (Richmond). If you live near here, please please please let me know./p
pThanks,br /
Colleen/p

pHi Cindy!/p
pHow ironic that I happened to log on today after several months! And how wonderful to see your message. I'm so excited and hope you'll be interested in meeting or at least talking on the phone. Is your child in daycare? By the way, I was unable to post with my old user name so I had to reregister as ColleenMarie. Still me with one less space (hee hee)./p
pI live near Chesterfield Towne Center. How about you?/p

pHi Anne Parrish,br /
We live in DC and have a son attending full-time pre-K in the District. We went through mega-anxiety and stress last summer before he started school. It has worked amazingly well, with a few bumps along the way. We would be happy to talk to you about our experiences. We also have several friends with kids attending Fairfax Co Schools and can tell you how their schools handle PA children. You can e-mail us direct at:br /
[email]Samsdad@erols.com[/email] Can you tell who our lives revolve around? Ha Ha/p
