I didn’t know that lentils were a member of the pea family. Well, I did know that they are legumes, and I know that peas are also legumes. But I thought lentils were closer to beans than peas. You reacted like you ate a pea. I’m so sorry, my little love. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I was just trying to get some protein into you since you couldn’t eat the meat sauce with beef in it. We got some medicine into you quickly, though, so the vomiting, hives and wheezing were very short lived. Thank God.

I pray that you quickly grow out of these allergies, Big Boy. It hurts me to see you have a reaction – I just wish I could whisk it all away from you. I love you so much.
