Last Tuesday I signed Alex up for kindergarten. To most this is just an emotional issue to deal with. For the most part it is for me too, but the other thing I have to deal with is his food allergy. A peanut allergy is quite complicated and many do not understand it. The school I am going to send him to has an action plan for kids with food allergies but I do not like that they don’t allow the teachers to keep the epi-pens in the classroom. Again, I will touch more on this later. While we have been on our peanut-free journey since he was 18-months-old, going to school 5 days a week with children much older than him is going to take a lot of getting used to. But just like everything else, I’m sure I’ll manage. It’s just going to take a while.
