#1 The Aller-bling Bracelet is AWESOME
You can kind of see it in this picture. It is has small charms with a picture and lists what she is allergic to. Perfect for this age! It is used as a conversation piece to get her talking about her allergies. In my opinion it is a good education piece. One more step we can take to keep our baby safe. She has kept it on for a good 2 months now. I have caught people in stores, church, ball games, ect. looking at it. Even if they do not mention it they are noticing it. Bringing more awareness to the often overlooked world of Food Allergies. I love it! If you have a child with one or more allergies Consider it.
#2 May contain traces of wheat and egg. Contains milk. Manufactured in a facility that also has peanuts. Packaged on shared equipment with egg. Contains soy. May contain milk, wheat, eggs, soy and peanuts. Manufactured in a facility that also produces egg, wheat, milk and soy. Ever seen this so many times you want to scream? Start reading labels, even if you don’t have to. It will make you go, hmmmmm.
#3 Halloween makes me want to panic.
You think dressing up and going door to door to get candy is the best thing ever. Well, to most people it is. And to Miss Aubree Grace it is too. It is her Momma that has the issue! My kids are the BEST. We did not eat that first bite of candy until we returned home. The best part, no one asked!!!!! Aubree had the best time collecting the candy, knowing she was not going to get to eat 90% of what she collected. The problem….The ingredients are not listed on each individual package of candy. It is just the main bag. You can’t go by well I know she can have that, because it changes so frequently. Just yesterday looked at a package of candy that she can normally have and it now says may contain egg and wheat. Dum-dum suckers and smarties are a safe candy. (but other than that we supplement with candy we buy) .................by the way I had to take a 30 min break in writing because I had just given Aubree a piece of bubblegum and she came and told her her throat was feeeling itchy. I made her spit it out and she had a nice does of antihistimine. She kepts saying it was itchy for about 20 mins then said it felt normal again. BIG SIGH…..OH MY......
#4 We learn so much each day. We are now working on teaching Keegan about Aubree’s allergies. That is a new one for us. I think he is getting it, it is pretty cute!
#5 We are beyond blessed to have Aubree as our daughter. She makes us laugh and teaches us the value of life each and every day. Love her and would not trade her AND our journey with allergies for anything (it would be perfectly fine if she DID out grow them though. LOL)
