I remember sitting in the emergency room. My stomach knotting with anticipation. I had a pretty good idea what I was bound to learn that night, but there was always a chance it could go another way. Looking back, I don’t think I was nervous about being told I was pregnant. I think I was scared they were going to tell me I was wrong.
What do you actually remember from childhood? Like, what do you really remember about Christmas? Do you actually remember what was in each and every neatly wrapped box, every single year, since you were a kid? Remember every single present, and everyone who gave you each present? I sure don’t …..
Wanna know what I do remember?
Seriously, where did this year go? Now I know what sleeping beauty felt like because I feel like I must have slept through a few months! Well, minus the evil witch, handsome prince …. and kisses!
There was so much stuff I planned to do this year, but none of it got done! I made new year resolutions, the normal stuff like losing weight, and set goals, and none of them got done! I’m not going back to school (one of my goals), I’m still eating Oreos on the reg, and please don’t get me started about the White Chocolate Raspberry pancakes we have at work!
Last Sunday came and went like any other Sunday, except this one brought with it a giant life lesson. By the end of the day I’d asked myself a question that everyone should be asking themselves and found the answer was far more simple then we allow it to be.
Every parent of a school age child can agree on one thing unanimously, children get sick far more often once they go to school. Sure, there may be some initial excitement when you think of all the free time your going to have in the morning after they climb on the bus. That’s quickly washed away however, by the realization that everyone is going to be sick until next June!
You cannot keep your child home and homeschooling is a very in-depth process, one most mothers don’t have time for. So what can you do – besides buying stock in Puffs?
Well don’t panic just yet guys, because there are some very easy ways to keep your school bound baby from catching the flu’s!
