Sea World Vent

We just got back from Orlando and I have a vent. Sea World had some Halloween thing going on over the weekend where kids can come dressed up and go trick or treating around the park and they had events and activities and so on. It was very cute. My son being severely allergic to peanuts and being 2 (On Friday!) he couldn't really eat anything. The station with smarties and mini bananas were great! However, when we approached one station, I noticed they were giving out bags of planter's peanuts. I was in shock! Not just because my kid is allergic to them but because SO many kids are nowadays. I wasn't freaking out the way I thought I would have been. But what if we were sitting at the Shamu show and the kid next to us were eating his. It is so freaking scary. I don't expect the world to stop eating peanuts but it was def scary!

Hugs Momma!

It is so scary to think how peanuts could end up anywhere at that point. At 2, you never know what they are going to pick up and put in their mouth, either.

I know for me, at least, it's like an in-your-face reminder of how your kid is different and can't be quite as care free as others.

Good job not freaking out too much. It's hard to find that balance between protecting them and letting them enjoy normal (and exciting!) parts of life.

How was the rest of your trip?
