Halloween Coping Strategies
I'm both excited and worried about Halloween. It will be the frist since DJ's diagnosis and both my husband and I have had several talks about how to handle the situation. While we've both agreed in the past we don't like the idea of ever singling DJ out by making him wear any sort of allergy clothing, Idid end up ordering him a No Peanut pin from CafePress.com to pin on his chicken costume. Most of our neighbors know DJ has PA, and of course, we'll both be walking with him door-to-door and inspecting his candy before he's allowed to even touch it. Hopefully, though, the pin will act as a reminder to our neighbors to keep the peanut butter cups and other unsafe treats for other kids and enable DJ to keep more of his booty.
