Sophie's List

Sophie's List of Wheat Foods That She Is Willing to Eat
Ramen noodles
Frosted MiniWheats
sometimes bread

And that's just about it. I keep looking for some logic in this list, and I just can't see it. I understand that it takes time to get used to a food you've never eaten. The foods that make her list are completely bizarre to me though.

I am really glad Sophie's not anaphylactic to wheat anymore, though. Not worrying about cross contamination, and asthma attacks from things boiling or baking, is such a relief!

Words cannot express

Words cannot express what it's like to have a child with food allergies, to know that at any time she could make a decision that could threaten her life. Allergic Living posted this photo:

which expresses the immediacy of decisions about food for people with food allergies. I hope that Sophie always keeps her wits about her, and never has this image become true in her life.
