# 5 Mistakes I've Made As A Food Allergy Mom

This is not easy to write.  To prepare for this post, I’ve had to remember some of the scariest times we’ve had with food allergies.  Knowing that things I did (even though they were accidents) may have caused these situations, makes my heart ache.  The Mom guilt is real.  And exposing my incompetence to the world is even harder.  Luckily, my daughter’s reactions were mild, but I don’t know what I would’ve done if my daughter would have had full-blown anaphylaxis (and even thinking of that is too difficult).  Let’s just say I’m SO THANKFUL that all the situations turned out well and we can now just call these situations learning experiences.
