Twist on tradition 

It’s already been established that Thanksgiving is not my favorite because of the anxiety a food holiday brings to a food allergy mom.  Consequently, I’ve become that person that everyone hates, you know, the one that has their Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving.  Spoiler alert: I LOVE CHRISTMAS! but back to Thanksgiving…

Thanks to Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving, I’ve started some new traditions with Squid (and now Tank).  On Thanksgiving morning, I make us a meal of toast, pretzels, (kettle) popcorn, and skittles (instead of jelly beans).  We sit and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade while eating our “Thanksgiving Feast.”

Thanksgiving may not be my favorite, but enjoying a nontraditional tradition with my boys is the best!  The meal was a hit!  Of course, he ate the Skittles first but that’s to be expected.  ONWARD TO CHRISTMAS!!!
