Hudson's ped. says three too?
i wonder if they upped the age?
the peds we went to when mine were young all said 2?
and with the increase in peanut allergies, i wonder if they upped it?

My Ped has always been 3 (or even 4) because they feel that the child is old enough at that age to communicate any strange feelings (itchy, numb tongue) or trouble breathing .... so quick action can be taken if there is an allergy

And they also said that since pb is so thick - it *can be* a choking hazard

It is not that eating it younger can *cause* an allergy - just that it is (in their opinion) better to wait

i ended up keeping him home?
i'm not sure what is up w/his stomach?
i hate to even say he's faking--i wondered last night but he's continued & he compalined in the night?
i think had it been fine he would have slept through?
but he's eating fine (actually wanting to eat)?
but he was nodding off on the couch this morning?
and really didn't get much sleep at all?
so i figure dhe would be worthless at school anyway?
not to mention irritable?
so i kept him home?
he's sleeping now?

i'm going to see how G is when he wakes?
then hopefully venture to the grocery store & farmers market?

i was also going to go get some shopping done for Christmas?
but obviously can't do that?
which sucks cuz I can only do it on Tues/Thurs?
I will have to play and be diligent next week?
I have a dental appt. Tues?
but can shop a little before/& after?
then Thurs. I have a lunch date but we had planned on doing a bit of shopping anyway?
i'll have Hudson that morning before MDO?
for just a bit after?
i have a feeling i will have H the following week on Tues/Thurs too?
which isn't a huge deal--i can shop/do what i need to while he's at MDO?
but I can't get as early of a start?
my sister is having knee surgery next Friday?
and she thinks she will be able to get H to/from MDO?
i don't think so?
(they said crutches thru the weekedn but even if she isn't on crutches there is the extra weight of holding H & his bag/stuff & getting inside etc)

I got Benjamin to preschool
he tried to run back down the sidewalk which was very invigorating with the strong winds we're having :P
anyway, I have now in desperation resorted to bribing him with monkey math ;)
if he goes to preschool, he can play in the van before & after

i know that they dont' think eating it at a younger age can cause an allergy?
but i'm wondering if they upped the age due to the increase of kids being allergic?
and the ability to voice it?
here when my kids were younger (even Graham) it was 2yrs.?
i was waiting for Graham to be 2 before we tried it?
but his reaction all happened at MDO before he turned 2?
which is how we found out?
so his one & only time of having it, he had a pretty severe reaction?
yes, it can be a choking hazard?
in fact, J asked me the other day about giving H sunbutter (vs. the PB) as she was trying to think of different things to send w/him to MDO for lunch?
i told her no for that very reason--it's thick and would be so hard for a little one to move around in their mouth?
or if it got stuck on the roof of his mouth etc?
plus he only has two bottom teeth so it's not like he could chew it well or even know what you're talking about?
so anyway, since H is the newest *baby* in our family (next is Graham) & his ped says 3, i wondered if perhaps they upped the age?
as you know, you could go to 10 different doctors & get 10 different opinions?

and now he's awake--he sure didn't sleep long?
i wonder why he can't sleep--that is not like him at all?
