A journal of life as it happens - recording the major milestones & little tidbits so I can scrapbook them later.
Still Catching Up...
I wish I could devote more time to blogging these days, but the best I can do is to post when I can.

It's been 24 hours since the Dandelion was diagnosed with a peanut allergy, and we are going through a bit of withdrawal. I am still reading the labels of the things in our house and researching some of our usual foods, so the phrase of the day has been "I'm Hungry". Four days ago I didn't think twice about getting a cookie at the grocery store bakery and two days ago gave him a granola bar, yet today I am hiding foods and every time he coughs I panic.
Amazing. And exhausting.
I have spent hours at the computer searching for information. Most of the things I had been finding were "forbidden" foods and warnings about eating out, etc. So discouraging. It took a while, but I finally found something useful, both for our appetites and my sanity - a list of "okay" foods. I know, this list could be outdated and always check the labels, but it made me feel a lot better that there was such a long list of foods that were "okay" when previously everything I had been finding was so negative.
I am a stay-at-home mother of two active kids (8 and 5.5). In between their playgroups & activities, I do my best to record memories of milestones and daily life with photographs and scrapbooks.
