Dealing with allergies without turning into a 'peanut mom'?
My friends kid just got diagnosed with a pretty serious peanut allergy (dr told her to get all peanut products out of the house, no eating at places that cook anything in peanut oil etc...).
One of the many things she is flipping out over is that she wants to keep her son safe without turning into a "peanut mom". I did not even know what she was talking about until I started poking online, so I thought id pose the question here.
How do you deal with severe food allergies in a kindergartner without becoming an overbearing killjoy 'peanut mom' (her words, not mine!)??
