Peanut-related issues have been a part of our lives for so long now, I don't always think of new things we should be doing, talking about, or adding to our already 'in place' routines. Like teaching E3 to recognize the word 'peanut'...five is plenty old enough for her to know that so she can help us read labels, but it didn't occur to me do that until a few weeks ago.
I read the two peanut story books we have again last week. When you add that with a new shirt for her Build-A-Bear you get some serious inspiration:
Teddy is ready for school.
and carrying her Hello Kitty! bag.
This is E3's old Hello Kitty! bag:
So sad, but it's had a nice long life.
We picked that up for her back in...2006, while in Savannah, GA, for Rob's annual work conference. It was the perfect size for a diaper, a travel-pack of wipes, E3's Epi-pens, and a few other odds and ends like a mini box of raisins and some small books. It went EVERYWHERE with her - literally.
For school, we needed another bag and decided to upgrade from the Hello Kitty! Now we have a simple black bag from Allergykids.com for home use, and a screaming neon green bag for school use...
