Welcome to a new week :)

1. Has spring "sprung" by you yet?

2. What are you wearing today?

3. Do you make a special menu for Easter (if you celebrate it)?

Again-you don't think it's important to do so in your own home or with your own guests.  So why would we believe that you'd be all outraged at others for including hazardous foods on their table?  It's what good hostesses do right?

Jam-most gatherings at holidays is "holiday" food and the same every year. There are just things that people look forward to. I would NEVER suggest to put ANYONE in danger but I would also expect the parent to be cautious about what the child can and can not eat and be aware that many things are family traditions.

Long life is more of a family tradition in our family than food, ymmv of course.

That is surprising Geschigtal because she has made a HUGE deal out of it here, on a messageboard on several threads with NO food involved. I think if that was MY child, I would be making SURE there was no life-threatening food at the gathering I was going to and I would think they would know by know since she said they have been accommodating her for years. How do you "forget"?

First, she's overreacting and can't her DD just not eat the salad? And now she's not diligent enough.  @@

Now you are arguing two different things.  That it is unreasonable to expect someone to change the menu to accomodate one person's allergy, and you would not do so; on the other hand, you would make sure that someone else did before you brought your child there.  This does not make sense.  Is this that Star Trek episode where they break the computer?  Mudd's Women?

Seems that the family didn't "remember" this though? How is that possible if they have holidays together every year?

Because some people value food over the life of a child as your posts suggest constantly?

 Or it could be as she has said about 100 times now, they forgot.  Really, people forget.

You who wouldn't accomodate her in the first place? ROTFLMFAO. It never occured to me that my SIL would forget. Lesson learned. For all of us. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

"You know what gets a BAER from me? People who minimize my kid's life threatening allergies and compare it to an aversion or intolerance or suggest I'm being petty when what I'm really trying to do is keep my kid alive. Imagine that, a mom trying to keep her kid safe. Woah--that's eyeroll worthy."......... And it is very sad that your own family would do that to you. How could they forget? Don't they know how severe it is as it seems that everyone on this messageboard does but your own SIL "forgot".

How unkind, yet again.

You've never forgotten something that was really important not to forget?

Sorry Regina but it seems very severe of an allergy that if you have made a big deal about it (because IT IS a big deal) on a message board, I can't imagine HOW a family member would not remember.

Based on your posts, you clearly don't get it....so how could you not see that someone could forget?
