Our Dog Allergic Child Got a PUPPY!!

I never thought we would see this day! We got a puppy and my super allergic son is NOT allergic to her. She is hypo-allergenic Teddy Bear, part Shih Tzu, and Bichon Frise. Her name is Zoey and she is 3 months. We love her so much!! 

Nathan hasn't had any problems with her. He still is allergic to dogs but not all dogs.

It has PEANUTS!!

Here is an another example of bad food ingredient labeling. 

I got this cookie for me and luckily I have no allergies.
It clearly contains peanuts and peanut butter but at the bottom it only states that is CONTAINS DAIRY.  But if you read the ingredients it actually contains WHEAT (GLUTEN), MILK, and EGGS in addition to the DAIRY. 

This make me nervous that food is being sold with this kind of labeling.  It came from a local bakery so I did block out the name.

Just a reminder to read all of the label.

Chocolate Pie

Nathan has asked about chocolate pie so I found this pie crust at one of my local grocery stores. It is GF, Egg Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free. I took some JELLO choclate pudding and made it according to the package but used soy milk instead of dairy. 

It turned out pretty good, I added marshmallows on top. Wish we had soy whip cream, that would have been better.

Review: MediKidz Explain Asthma Comic Book

I have had an opportunity to review a great new comic book MediKidz Explain Asthma Comic

The Medikidz are superheros who live on MEDILAND, a planet shaped like the human body. They are experts in health and illness, and their mission is to teach you all about your body and how illness affects it.

My son's asthma isn't easy to explain to him but we read  MediKidz Explain Asthma Comic Book and it really helped him understand about his asthma and why it is sometimes harder for him to breathe. The book kept him interested since he loves reading comic books.  

I will be giving away 4 copies of this  MediKidz Explain Asthma Comic book to my readers. May 15th is the last day to enter. Complete the form below to enter. Good Luck!
