Peanuts Are Bad!!
Kathryn had a party at her cute new house on Saturday night and the whole family was invited. (Don't my kids look ready for a party...it is increasingly difficult to get a photo of all 3 together...oh, and someone asked if Mack was going to be a hippy..hee hee) Anyway, we were having a great time at the party. The kids were eating crackers, cheese and fruit and generally being the life of the party. (I did catch them biting off a few things and putting them back in the bowl so sorry if you got a soggy crustini or cheese curd) Then the peanut episode...Abe and I, simultaneously, see Sophie stick peanuts in her mouth. We have peanut allergies, folks!!! Abe grabs her and pries the peanuts out of her mouth while I prepare to get her outside and in the car. While we rush home, my friend Julie, who is a doctor, rushes to the pharmacy to get an EpiPen. Meanwhile Sophies face is blotching up and her eyes are swelling shut. At home, we douse her in Benedryl and Julie moniters to see if we need the EpiPen. After throwing up (her not me) she seems fine. Abe volunteers to stay home and I go back to Kathryn's and have a much needed glass of wine. Everyone's fine now but Peanuts are BAD!!!!
