Brother Sun Sister Moon

Sorry, no St. Francis here today.  Perhaps another day.  (If you understood that–you deserve a prize!)

Yesterday driving home from school in the afternoon, Hannah Rose noticed the moon was already out.

Why was it out?  According to Hannah Rose, “it wanted to visit the sun.”

Allergy Free!

It was almost a year ago when we entered the Wacky World of Food Allergies.

Fortune has smiled upon us.  More accurately, fortune has smiled on Hannah Rose.

She was recently retested for her food allergies and she tested back allergy free!  She was quite excited–as were we of course!

We’ve been gradually re-introducing milk and egg back into her diet.  She’s enjoying eating all her favourite foods that she couldn’t eat.  Last night was pizza night, and she was quite excited to have cheese on her pizza again.  (We had been making cheese-less pizza for pizza night, which actually isn’t bad.  But the cheese does serve a grand purpose–it keeps the sauce saucy and adheres your toppings to the pizza!)

This morning she tried Irish butter for the first time.  (Kerrygold–you can get it at Costco…you can’t buy better butter!!!)  She thought it very yummy.

She’s on schedule to start drinking milk and eating eggs again next week.

Looks like I won’t be needing my Allergy Free Cookbook anymore!

The best part about all of this is no longer needing to worry that she may have an adverse reaction if she accidentally ingested milk or egg.
