It was the 6 year old's turn for allergy testing today. 
I was totally not prepared for this. We suspected he *might* be allergic to peanuts. Turns out he is SEVERELY allergic, even more so than his older brother. Can you find the largest hive and area of redness? That's the peanut. Lots of red is not good. 😮😩
And, maybe it is all in the spirit of competition, he left his older brother in the dust when it comes to being allergic to EVERYTHING outside. .

  • anniestuckeyfitnessI remember getting that done as a child 😩 the worst!! I was allergic to nearly everything! Still can't sit in grass with shorts on 😞. Allergy shots twice a week and and oral medicine everyday as a kid. Still on medicine as an adult. Sorry momma! Hopefully he will grow out of some of them. Hang in there!!
  • amysavvymom@anniestuckeyfitness I'm hoping he will. We are looking into allergy shots for the future. Do you feel like they helped with the severity of your allergies?
  • anniestuckeyfitnessTo be completely honest I think they did. I started them really young. I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and the doctors told my parents that because of the severity of my allergies we shouldn't live there. Well of course we couldn't just move! Anyways they did change over time... I went from shots twice a week and a pill to shots once a week and a pill and then finally by I want to say 7th grade I was only taking an oral allergy medicine 😘
  • sharolynthayerSo sorry, Amy and Miles.
