To shake things up this holiday, we discovered quite by accident that our little one is highly allergic to nuts.
You can imagine how much fun we had in the ER with him and what a huge scare that was.
Come to find out that nuts are pretty much everywhere. So now what? Learning about how to find food that doesn't contain nuts, nut products, or food produced on equipment also used to process nuts.
Good times. Never a dull moment.
Ah, but so much to be thankful for this holiday season.
Having some time off work with my family is my #1 thing to be thankful this year, but having the kind of friends that will meet you in the emergency room, rescue your 4 yr old from having to hang out with the crazy folks in there so both you and your husband can stay there with the sick baby, and having those same friends bring you dinner later makes me realize how good we have it.
In other news, my friend Sharon gave me this totally insane and beautiful yarn ball for Christmas. I'm feeling a scarf coming on in the new year.
