there is a new club at our house- it is the cool kids club- comprised of luke and velzy. it's the peanut butter club. they think they are so cool eating their peanut butter and jelly, or peanut butter and banana sandwiches, while i am left to eat bread with butter and jam.
no peanuts for me- i am allergic.
it all started a few days ago when luke came home from work and had is usual apple with peanut butter for a snack. velzy always takes an apple slice or two and eats happily, but not last friday, no way. she needed peanut butter on her apple so we decided to test the waters and she if she was allergic or not. a few bites of apple and a lot of peanut butter later there was no rash and velzy had a new favorite treat. so favorite that she had pb sandwiches for lunch and dinner yesterday- yuck.luke is stoked to have a new buddy to eat peanut butter with. i caught him telling velz "velzy, we will always have peanut butter. that's something your mom can never take away from us" ok, it sounds lame once i wrote it, but it was really funny at the time.
anyways, as nasty as i think peanut butter is i am so happy that she can eat it- how easy is it to pack a pb sandwich with you wherever you go? and how happy am i now that i don't have to worry that she is going to randomly get some pb and have some crazy reaction? very.
