I went to the gym tonight and when I got back to pick the kids up, (sitting for my class only, just a local teen who swings by for an hour) there was a peanut next to the boys' blanket that they were playing on. They usually just play on the floor and roll around. Lucy told me that a little girl (about 4) had been eating a bag of peanuts.
I asked the class instructor and mentioned that facilities usually have a facility-wide rule re: peanuts and allergens, and she responded, "Nope, I don't think so. I mean, Lola's mom is a pediatric nurse. I'm sure she would know if there was a risk."
Wha?!?! Aside from the clear choking hazard on the floor within reach of the babies, peanuts can kill kids who are allergic. The boys are too young for us to know about them yet, anyway. I was totally speechless and I have no idea how to handle this from here. Finding a gym near us with childcare is nearly impossible, and i really like this arrangement, but I don't think I can let this go. Wwyd??
