I'm about ready to move on to a new topic -- but here are a few last things I've learned.
1. Make your own cookbook -- when you find something that works type it up and stick it in your book. It makes looking for recipes at dinnertime less complicated.
2. When you start to get frustrated again remember that there are resources that you might not know about yet and start looking. Sometimes help is a google search away.
3. I read somewhere that it is better to treat an allergy matter of factly. Don't treat your child like they are picked on and they are less likely to think that they are.
4. Finally, be willing to ask questions -- so here is one for you:
Dan one day will go to school, he will have birthday parties to attend and ball games with treats. At some point, no matter how matter of factly I treat his allergy, he is bound to feel a bit picked on because he will be different. Any suggestions on how to help him through that? Most of you won't have had to deal with that before -- but neither have I -- any ideas?
