    I just have to vent a little. Do you believe that my mother-in-law actually bought Butterfinger candy to give my daughter for Halloween??! She is horribly allergic to peanuts!!!! I was horrified. Her answer was “I totally forgot!” If I can’t trust my family to know and remember her allergies, then WHO can I trust! I’m so thankful that I have taught my daughter how to read labels!!

      Oh my goodness! Vent away! That is so scary! I find myself repeatedly reminding people in our lives about my son’s allergies. It’s just something many people are ignorant to but they don’t fully understand. Great job educating your daughter about reading labels and advocating for herself. I got upset when a family member gave my son goldfish crackers in his Halloween present. However, then I realized that that may be more commonly looked over. But Butterfingers?!? How old is your daughter if you don’t mind me asking? I’m relieved that she was and is safe. Great job teaching her Mama!

        She is 8 years old.
        I just looked at my mother in law in horror!? Other than my husband and I, my daughter spends a lot of time with her so this came as a total shock!
        Thanks so much for listening💕

        Wow! I have heard many people talk about how their parents or in-laws did similar things regarding foods and allergies. At least you can find some comfort in knowing that your daughter is already an amazing advocate for herself and allergies. You’re always welcome to vent … Although I hope that there is never another need to 🙏
