    New friend at preschool

    So DS (who is allergic to peanuts) told me today he has a new friend at school named Cooper. I happen to know from DS' teacher that Cooper also has a peanut allergy. (The whole privacy thing was out the window, she just up and told me "Cooper is allergic too and he is in this class") funny that with so many kids in one class the two boys with peanut allergy would befriend each other. We are only a few weeks in so I"m not going to start harassing mom for play dates, but that might actually be a possibility with this little guy! That would be so great.

    DS' teacher is a lovely woman with a thick foreign accent. DS has such an articulation delay people can barely understand him. I bet their conversations are pretty funny to listen to lol. He just adores her though.

    That's great!

    Cooper's mom is probably just as excited as you are that the 2 boys are friends.
