    What’s that potion Paige is brewing?

    Hopefully it’s a silencing potion!

    It looks like Kraft dinner…probably with Blue’s Clues shaped pasta!

    Why not let her pass out? It’ll keep her quiet.

    I don’t know if having to CPR on a toddler is going help anything.

    you shouldn’t do CPR for stopped breathing- only if the heart is stopped as well. That can do more harm than good if it’s done when not necessary! (Try just ‘rescue breathing’ instead for an unconscious person who still has signs of circulation.)

    The perfect solution - Peanut Butter. Unless, of course, she’s allergic to peanuts. Then we’d have a whole other set of issues…

    I think she’s doing a great job. She’s ignoring the child’s plaintive cries for Blue’s Clues just like a Mom.

    You have to admire that and then ask where she found the wonderful earplugs she’s using.

    When I was a kid, no one heard of peanut allergies. Why, all of a sudden, are there so many new allergies? Just wondering. Sorry to sidetrack.

    one hypothesis about allergies is that our homes are too clean - the immune system gets bored without bugs to fight, so it starts going after whatever it can find…

    i get hayfever, and my daughter has a fairly nasty peanut allergy…

    sigh…

    You know, Mom said no TV/Videos, that doesn’t mean no Blues Clues. They could read all the Blues Clues books and/or invent their own episode with the toys. Knowing how kids are (having 3 myself) after doing that she’ll probably get tired of Blues Clues…

    …and fixate on something else, of course ;)

    I first heard of a serious peanut allergy in 1986. As far as why, I read a study that there are some countries where peanuts are commonly eaten (various countries in Africa, also China) but peanut allergies are very rare. One difference? They primarily boil their peanuts, while in the US we roast them. Some researchers think the resulting difference in the protein structure is partly responsible for the difference in allergy rates.

    Paige should just be glad she’s not babysitting Calvin - he’s over there planning Revenge on Rosalyn today in his rerun!

    On the news last year there was a girl who was very allergic to peanuts and anything to do with peanuts. The guy she was seeing, I think was in sports, he had just eaten a peanut-butter sandwich they shared a smooch she felt the effects of peanut-butter and she collapsed and died. Me I’m glad I can eat peanuts but not over indulged. I don’t agree with dt, maybe said in joking manor, but what the kid can eat hopefully, not be allergic to peanuts, and Paige would know would keep Katie occupied. For a minute I thought Paige was her mom and Paige took Katie home to her mom for help.

    Sorry if my sentence structure is bad but from school was not taught in that area and its been a long time since school.

    I bet the little brat doesn’t even like Blue’s Clues. It’s just psychological warfare against the babysitter.

    Kids are more indoors than outdoors, and as a result don’t develop immunities that nature allows them to… When I was a kid, I used to play with frogs, snakes, in the creek, get all wet, and I was barely sick. :) I’m a tomboy at heart!

    It could also be that some mothers when they get pregnant, they stop eating everything the literature tells them is bad for the pregnancy, so the child is not brought into contact with those things before birth. I’ve seen that with some of my cousin’s kids…

    Of course, this is all theory…

    My personal theory on the sudden upswing in food allergies: GMOs, preservatives and other food additives.

    Personally, I don’t think it’s natural in the least to be eating stuff that gives me a shelf life after death, or tolerates being drenched repeatedly in weed killers.

    Kids are surviving their first peanut allergy event. Years ago they would die from it with no clue as to what caused their death. Our improved medicines have allowed people to survive cataclysmic events.

    I agree with GuntotionLiberal and Natashlee. We are finding these allergies a lot more instead of the child dying. But there is also an influx of these allergies because of all the peservatives in the foods we eat now. Just like with diabeties. more people now have been dianosed with diabeties then ever before. (sorry about my spelling. I’m tired and don’t want to fix them)
