Phewwww!  I was sure so glad to get this notice.  It says that due to allergies, the class will not allow celebrating birthdays by bringing in treats… Perfect!  These days our kids get enough treats here, there and everywhere… times 10 on your birthday.  I’m willing to give one treat day up.

I’m sure that classroom management of birthday treats is crazy between the allergies and what children are allowed to eat, and then there’s dealing with the silly antics that can come with a morning cupcake loaded with sugar, more sugar, and loads of Red Dye #3.

Of course lots of moms love whipping up a special treat for their special one and Pinterest yields lots of ideas to spark the creativity, so if it’s truly something you enjoy, that may be a bummer!
