“He gets himself, it’s everyone else that can’t keep up.” YE S! I love this line from Dude Mom’s Different is Interesting. Whether you are the one with a quirky kid or you’re just trying to understand, go give this a read.

Earlier this week, there was a post going around about how basically, nut-free schools aren’t preparing kids for the real world and they are a burden on the rest of our kids. Look, I have one kid with sensory issues and all sorts of fun stuff going on like a need to gain weight and he’d live on pb&j’s if we let him. It IS our go-to. However, even I don’t feel like my kid’s desire for peanut butter is more important than someone’s life. My friend Erika wrote a rebuttal with I Am Not Apologizing for My Child’s Nut Allergy and The Dose Girls wrote this post last year, but it’s still very much worth a read: Yes, Your Kid Can Actually Live Without Peanut Butter.
