Ooooh Something New?! Is It Safe For Me?
It is so exciting to find FUN stuff! Especially when you’ve got a food allergy. Oftentimes it seems like all the “cool” stuff is off-limits. Whether it be a bakery item, buffet, homemade goodies from a well meaning neighbor or a birthday party treat. So when we find something that is SAFE, we jump for joy and indulge!
Lip Smackers Disney & Marvel Lip Balm
This is what happened when I was with my daughter at our local Fry’s grocery store (Kroger chain). We were grabbing a quick bite to eat at the deli, and then made our way over to the baby aisle which in this store is shared with cosmetics aisle. We grabbed our baby wipes that I needed, and on the way toward the cashier we were stopped dead in our tracks. The CUTEST Lip Smackers Disney and Marvel lip balms that you ever did see!
Anticipation … Can I Embrace It?! Will This Be A Find Or Another To Add To My Off Limits List?
My daughter that has no allergies eagerly began digging through her options free to choose anything she wanted without a second thought about allergies. I love all my children, BUT when I am looking at items and situations I always think about my son’s peanut and shellfish allergy first and foremost. My other children can be innocent and carefree and not worry about it, although they are considerate about their brother’s allergy.
Me, however, I dove in to check-out the ingredient label to see if I could even embrace the excitement. You food allergy people get me… feel excitement, stifle it, investigate to see if can embrace….hold breath…. and … SCORE! Contains wheat, soy and sesame (I’m sorry to those with those allergies because I know the feeling). So I embraced it! It’s a glorious! In fact, because we sacrifice in the name of life, literally, I do think that we have greater appreciation and joy when we do find fun safe things! So while we may have lower lows it seems at times, we have higher highs – that’s my feeling anyways!
