Less than one week until school begins! I spent part of my morning labeling all of Grady’s school supplies, realized we bought the wrong kind of Crayola markers (The box didn’t contain a black, yellow, or blue?! Why?), bought two new boxes, and packed his bag for his first day of school. While I could feel the excitement for his upcoming year building inside, I also started to feel the anxiety creep in:
- What will this new school year bring?
- Will he have a reaction this year?
- How can I help his new teacher? Will she feel overwhelmed?
- Will Grady’s new classmates be able to understand his food allergies?
