Welcome! I posted my final post in October 2010 for the sole reason that for those who need it, it is the post I most want them to see. It was, for us, an answered prayer. I wish you the best of luck in your journey with food allergies, eczema, and/or asthma. I have since founded ChasingMotherhood. CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org XO

While this post is not specific to raising a child with food allergies, in my opinion, it can make a tremendous difference in quality of life. For some of you this post will be one that you bypass because it simply does not apply. But for others who feel they could use some help "decluttering and organizing your home and life" I highly recommend checking out FlyLady.net. The best part is... it's free - but the knowledge gained is invaluable. There's a lot of work that goes into raising a happy and healthy family and chaos can intrude into any life to make it feel overwhelming - families with allergies included. Having safe food at hand, keeping prescriptions stocked, and being emergency ready at all times can feel mind-boggling without a system in place. As the website states, "This system will work for anyone; it doesn’t matter if you work outside of your home, stay home with children, retired or work at home." FlyLady's simple "babysteps" approach allows you to implement your own morning, night, and weekly routines that can open up a whole new world. The goal of the FlyLady system is to take care of business in a way that opens up much more free time for playing and having fun with the ones you love!
