It's time to play CANDYCANKILLYOULAND: the (potentially) heart-stopping game for 1 out of 13 kids and their families!!!!!!!
Just choose a piece...doesn't matter which. They're all the same...although doctors all seem to have their favorites.
Ready to get started? Roll the genetic dice and take your first turn.
Oh, too bad! Tough first turn! Your kid's allergic and you're stuck here.
Well, gotta move on anyway.
Make a choice...you only get 10 minutes on this square.
Choose your path: make a big deal or a little deal out of allergies? Too far and you'll reach Helicopter Mountain. Not far enough and it's the Allergy-Must-Be-Mild Mirage
Oops! Your school administrator likes to say "back in my day we didn't have allergies" and "every child can't have special treatment." Wait on this square every day with your heart in your mouth until the school day is over
Choose your path again! Will it be Eating Disorderland for your little one? Crushing Anxiety City for you? No way to know which path is best/So take a turn and and make a guess!
You're starting to figure out the best path. Move ahead 3 squares
Grandma Nutt doesn't believe in allergies! BAD REACTION!! Back to Square One
These games can go on forever, can't they? And they're never any fun.
We play them, though, because we love our kids. We play, even when we know it's not a game.
What choice do we have?
