Let me take a second to explain why Carter would say this for those of you who don't know about Carter. I have not mentioned it a lot on here because it is something that has been second nature to us for the last 5 years. Carter is DEATHLY allergic to peanuts and peanut products. He is very aware of this and can usually tell you what he can or cannot eat. Starting Kindergarten, we have had quite a few meetings to discuss what is safe and unsafe for Carter and how to handle him should there be an attack. I wrote a note as well as a safe snack list, to all the parents explaining things. It is life threatening and very serious - which not everyone understands.
So, Carter comes home and begins to write his book. This is Carter's first edition of the story. We are working on illustrating it now but hope to have it ready this week for him to take to school this week. I will keep it in his words (and punctuation or lack there of - they have not studied that in Kindergarten yet!!).

Yankees, or Dodger things. However, when one of his favorite Braves' players was sent to the Mets, he thought we would change the rules. We stood firm to our rule, but Gran Willis went above and beyond to bring this into the house. One of our friends, Erin McCutchen, is in New York and was able to find this for Carter. Big Michael (as Carter calls Erin's brother) went up to see her last week and brought home this treat for Carter.So now, my washer, drier and basically whole home (once he wears it) will be defiled. Thanks, so much, Gran, Erin and Big Michael! You really did make this little boy's day a wonderful one!
