This morning while dropping Leta off at preschool, I noticed a large pink note taped to the refrigerator door as I opened it to put away her lunch box. I hadn’t noticed it before and so assumed it had been put there recently as a reminder to a new teacher about certain food restrictions. It read:
Child A is allergic to peanuts.
Child B is allergic to milk.
Child C is a vegetarian.
LETA ARMSTRONG. VERY PICKY EATER.
That’s my girl. I’m sure this is only the first of many times in her life she’ll have earned her name being written in all caps.
