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)?

My child doesn't have severe allergies Regina so I wouldn't have to worry about that and I couldn't IMAGINE any of my family (either side) not remembering that they did.

You can't imagine your family (either side) to be nothing less than perfect?  You know people make mistakes, people move past those mistakes and learn from them.  Stop turning it into high drama already, especially when you have said that you wouldn't not serve dishes with ingredients that have allergies in them.

I didn't say I wouldn't accommodate. I said I would make a separate dish and if it was family, I am sure I would remember who had the allergy and speak to the parent before the event.

That would be called "not accomodating."

Rather curious about this myself. So it's okay for Hazel and Jam to do it deliberately, but a cardinal sin for my SIL to make a mistake and forget...

" if you're the parent whose kid isn't being accomodated--what are you going to do?"..... what would you do? Wasn't it too late by the time you got there? Did you leave?

Still waiting for you to answer the question...

Don't expect any kind of explanation.  Many people have a difficult time admitting mistakes or they were wrong.

Different view how PKA? Do you usually view an entire family the same way as one or 2 individuals?

Yes, there is a reason.  If there is a person who might die if she ate and almond that somebody accidently dropped an almond into another dish while the green beans were being passed, or someone got careless and used a spoon from another dish to serve the green beans, then put it back in the other dish....well, you just wouldn't serve almonds around a person who might die if she accidentally ate an almond.  Unless, of course, the desire to eat the almonds was greater than the desire to protect the child.

"How is it so complex? There was a problem and she told them it was a problem. It's not that she came on the board all upset & didn't know what to do about the issue in the future. She's been pretty clear about her communication."..... After the fact but she didn't say they left, did she? How was that not putting her child in harm?
