Cashews are Evil

I did not have a good day today. I tried a new breakfast bar this morning. It had cashews in it, and shortly after eating it I did not feel good at all. I even got red bumps all over. Mom and Dad took me to a doctor's office. When we first walked in, I thought it was an "eat" place, but I soon figured it out. I screamed and tried to get out. They tried to bribe me with an Elmo sticker. I thought things were going better so I calmed down a bit, but they drew blood from me. It was awful. The rubber ducky they gave me at the end was not worth it. They are going to do some tests to see if I am allergic to tree nuts.

Things did get better at lunch. I had my favorite food, pizza, and the juice was flowing! Usually Mom and Dad cut me off when I've had too much juice.

I had a nice Thanksgiving. In the morning I helped Mom make TWO pecan pies (which I had no interest in trying, but stirring is fun!). Then we went over to Molly's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Molly is less than 2 months younger than me and 2 year-old friend and cousin Lexi was there too. As you can guess, it was not a very peaceful meal for the adults. I only ate the cranberry relish and stuffing for dinner. I tried the pumpkin pie but it was eew. I had some brown cake which was very nice.

There's a reason oven mitts do not come in toddler size!

Potties make great toys. Alden demonstrated how to flush and Lexi showed how to properly select a good read.
