My dd used to have a life-threatening peanut allergy (until she was desensitized). I can't even begin to describe the terror of having a child who could die that easily. It put a huge damper on our day to day lives. We wound up homeschooling because of it. I was too afraid to send her (and my son, who has since outgrown his allergy). I will always remember the kindness of the few people who gave up their PB&J so my kids could participate in something (like a birthday party, for example). It was just one meal for them (as they could eat it at other times) but it meant SO MUCH to us. These people truly cared about my kids and I loved them for it.

Now that we don't have to worry about that anymore, I try to be considerate of those out there that are dealing with it. I can always feed them the PB&J at home, ya know? They can have an alternate meal around allergic kids.
