When I picked up Bella from daycare today, her teacher pulled me aside.
She proceeded to tell me how they were making a collage today, with all sorts of pictures cut out of magazines, that they glued to construction paper. This week is "N" week, so each picture had to do with that letter.
Apparently, while they were busy sorting and pasting, Bella turned one of her photos and told her teacher, "These are almonds. I can't eat these." Just matter-of-fact.
Her teacher was quite impressed that she could identify something beyond peanut butter. She's never had a PA or TNA kid in her class (and she's been teaching for a long time) who could do this. Most can recite what they are allergic to, but can't pick them out of a lineup.
Bella looked so proud of herself.
I couldn't help but beam a little too. My little PA genius.
(And no, I don't sit and make her memorize flash cards of different nuts)
