Grade 1 and Letting Go

Samantha Yaffe’s frank take on motherhood with allergies Is there anything more gut churning than thinking about your anaphylactic child sandwiched among 200 kids eating 200 snacks that may contain who-knows-what in a sprawling playground supervised by three adults? Well, hello recess. And there’s no getting around it, twice-a-day, every day, now that Lucas has […]
