How was I supposed to know she was allergic to peanut butter? They hadn't written it down anywhere, and they hadn't said anything.
I was 15, and I had watched Liam more than 10 times already, and the issue had never come up. When I watched him that day in the summer, I had told him I was making him a PB&J sandwich, and he didn't even say anything about the allergy. Shouldn't a 7 year old have known about his own allergy?
After he gobbled it down, I noticed the swelling that started in his hands and face, and immediately started to panic. I called his parents first, who told me about the allergy, and then I called an ambulance right away. It was such a scary day, and I was glad they were able to help Liam right away.
