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)?

I don't know what you're trying to compare but I'll play.....  MIL smokes and she knows not to smoke in my house so she takes it outside.  I do NOT expect her to be accomodating when we are at her house however.

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

I am guessing by your clever use of "quotations" that you think there is something fishy about this story. Why  turn your unfortunate mistake (and really, if you just misread her original post, why the heck don't you just own up to it?) into the third degree about RG and her family? So now that you know her SIL forgot one year about her niece's allergies, suddenly they are the Hatfields and McCoys. SMH

Shaking my head at the things grown women get their panties in a wad about.

It is not hidden. She wears a bracelet identifying her allergens. She self identifies the allergens, in addition to my advocacy. When I'm not with her, she carries a purse w/her epi pen & benadryl. 

And you've repeated stated that you wouldn't remove the offending items from your menu, which to me is far worse than my SIL forgetting about my daughter's allergy.

It's not like we'll ever be FB friends, but the other ladies on here who are my FB friend have certainly seen my frequent advocacy posts about food allergies. Again, I really don't give a rat's patootie what you think about my SIL or my parenting, Hazel, particularly since you admitted you think "family tradition" about certain foods supercedes a kid's safety. Trying to vilify my SIL for forgetting doesn't make you look any less like a horse's behind now.

It had but now it is cold again.  We have had a very unusal winter.  Either above average (was 90 last Monday) or below average (we were in the low 30's last night).

Jeans, heather grey long sleeve t-shirt.

No special menu.

YES Jam. There are so many things on pinterest. I am going to a wedding in a few months and have been looking in the wedding section at guest dresses too to get some ideas :)

Wow, Dresses too?  That's cool!

Again, if EVERYONE on a message board and your FB knows, how is it that a family member that you dine with for years does not know?

So they "know" Regina but "forget". Gotcha.

"Exactly." Can we "drop" this line of "questioning" now?

"Shoot, I'm not RG's family and I knew of her dd's allergies. Granted, when we last ate together it was sushi - and tree nuts and milk aren't commonly found in sushi, but still!"........ So why do you think her OWN family wouldn't know and remember?

Not my own family, Hazel. My DH's stepfamily. And for the umpteenth and final time, because said family is human. Perhaps SIL was so excited about trying that recipe and thought TG was the perfect time to try it out that she just didn't think about my kid's food allergy. She said she forgot. I believe her. And I reminded the family how dangerous those kind of accidents could be.

When MIL called to discuss Easter--we discussed the menu and accomodating DD. I didn't do that at TG b/c SIL had accomodated itty bitty before and her forgetting never crossed my mind. But she did. So now I know that people forget. And so I remind them.

Yes, I would be sure to always remind someone who was cooking for my child who had severe allergies.
