Man, every parent always wonders what they are in for when they drop off thier child at a trusted day care when the normal teacher not there. Even worse for us with celiac disease-Kids. Well today is a odd day for us because my wife has extra chior practice for the Church Christmas concert, and I had work so needed to leave our son with the childcare at the church. Normaly we plan at least a few extra mins t breif new teachers, even have a full page printed doc for them to refer to if they have any questions, etc etc. He normaly only goes to Sunday school, and twice a week "pre school" there. I do not knwo the staff that works on Saturdays...

Well I saw the teacher and asked if she was familure with my son, and she said "No, but its okay I have Celiac Diseas"

I was speechless, I was not ready for that :lol: I had in my mind all the things to say about it, and what to durring snack time, and etc. I was not at all prepaired for that answer!

This also shows that we are doing a good job getting the word out to the staff there about him, since I did not have to tell her about celiac disease, she knew he had it.

Felt odd to leave there with out the normal speech on it though... like I was betraying my son's care or somthing. :lol:

Oh and get this... She had her son with her, and as I left I heard him say to her "He has celiac disease too? Cool." LOL celiac disease is cool now? Man guess we are the "in crowd" for a change!

It's amazing how many people have celiac. There's so many out there suffering out there that also have it and don't know it. Before I became sick, I never heard of gluten or celiac.

You're very lucky to have found daycare with a celiac caregiver. I'm sure it gives you peace of mind. :)

Well now everyone will want this, so they can be part of the "IN" crowd.

Believe me, I didn't want years of agony to be part of this.

Yep, that is so cool! Not that I think it's great to have celiac disease, but I am so looking forward to the day when it'll be like saying you have diabetes - and get an understanding and/or sympathetic nod instead of the blank stare and endless questions.

That is cool!

Granted, I live in Los Angeles, city of unusual foods and diets, but at a recent moms meeting we had several new people, about 8-10 moms total plus kids, and at least 3 of the families were wheat free :) :) And, we just found out the boy down the street is gluten free. :) :) So now we know where to go if there is an earthquake and all that's handed out are the dreaded MREs, lol....

Vincent - that must have been so relieving! That is beyond cool! As awareness increases and more people are diagnosed w/celiac disease, I think this will happen more and more. :)
