February We made the trip to Baltimore to see Dr. Wood, though not much had changed. We found out dear son’s tummy aches after soup were because of soy protein isolate or soy protein concentrate. Very powerful form of soy protein, even if it is a last ingredient. Thank you Dr. Wood! You are always worth the trip!
March It was super NOT to have to make cupcakes for the end of the season. Joy of Cupcakes baked basketball cupcakes and delivered them fresh right before the last game. The team cupcakes had tiny basketballs made of icing – of course the boys ate them first! Not a single icing ball was thrown at a teammate.
April Our boy had some of his best moments of 2011 on a tour of Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia, the home of the Phillies. He sat in the dugout and posed in the press room. Awesome! We hope some day he can see a game in person. Phillies fans, keep plugging for an allergy free seating area.
May The baseball practices got much longer this year as son moved into AAA Little League. We are so grateful to all his coaches. They were willing to learn the Epipen, to watch out for any reactions, to treat him like all the other boys who just get dropped off for practice. Special thanks to Coach Leo, Coach Tony, Coach Paul and Coach Darrell – you are helping our son grow into a responsible young man.
June Both kids did a great job cooking this summer. Our daughter made beautiful breakfasts, with eggs and fruit and a taste of chocolate too. Son’s specialty is his fresh fruit designs. We were very proud when he served this meal of hot dogs, corn and fruit salad.
July Nationals park on a summer afternoon, best friends, baseball, peanut free area – all added up to a fun day. It went into extra innings and I don’t remember who won. Who cares? A great day.
