Thursday Thanks Tank #110



Each Thursday I make a list of my thankful thoughts. I spend time throughout my day appreciating the little and big things in my life. My posted list gives you a glimpse of my thankful heart.

This Thursday I cannot stop thinking about my son's peanut allergy. It's on my mind a bit more than normal because Halloween is around the corner. Let me tell you some of the things I am thankful related to his keeping him safe.

1. My son's Kindergarten Teacher: She is doing a great job keeping me informed. She emails me when she is going to be out of the class and lets me know what the plan is for my son's Epipen. She calls me when there is going to be a class party. She sent the safe candy list home with the kids. She made sure the mom organizing the class party worked with me. I am very thankful for my son's teacher.

2. Kind parents: So far there have been 2 class birthday parties. Both parents were wonderful about picking party food from the safe party food list I provided. I am so thankful for their great attitudes.

3. Support from teachers that aren't my son's teachers: Each kid at school gets a chance to earn "Read At-Home" prizes. The prizes are often candy. The person in charge told me she is now going to order non-candy prizes.

*****************

Well, I started this list much, much, muuuuuch earlier today and well, it's LATE.

I thought I'd post this little list and let you know I am thankful for every one that supports my son and my family as we protect my son from the dangers of his peanut allergy.

Tomorrow's class party day (you know, check-all-of-the-treats-to-make-sure-they-are-safe-day) so I better get some rest.

It sounds like he really does have a great teacher. It makes all the difference, especially to a kindergartener. I'm off to my son's class party today too. Of course I'm helping with snack, but the snack is a smoothie so it's not quite so worrisome. Of course it does call for ice cream so I volunteered to buy the two gallons of ice cream. I spent $21 on Breyer's vanilla last night.
