First and foremost, I am a mom to three wonderful kids. Truman is 7, Hunter is 5, and Mandie is 3.
Secondly, I am a wife to Bud, who has been my best friend for over 12 years (married for 9). I am a homeschooling mom, and an allergy mom. The first role I chose before Truman was born. The second role I was thrown into when Mandie was a couple of months old. Both roles are challenging, but both are also extremely rewarding. My other job is as a school bus driver, which is also a challenging and rewarding job. I really enjoy driving the bus, and having students from grades K-8 makes every route different and fun. I have a great group again this year. As if that weren't enough to keep me busy, I help Mom tend the large gardens, harvest and can the produce, keep up with the yard and chickens and cats and dogs. In my "spare time" I love to read, write, and sew - both by hand and machine. I have also taken up running (though it's just indoors for now), and am writing a cookbook/resource book for people with multiple, severe allergies and celiac disease.
I am writing this blog to share my experiences as the mom of a severely food allergic child, and to share some recipes that Mom and I create for our family. I hope that what I share can help someone else navigate this crazy world of food allergies.
