Our Apples Aren't Keeping the Doctors Away

You know the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Well, we eat our apples but our doctors are still on speed dial!!I know I have been talking a lot about health (or lack there of) lately but I am just so frustrated right now.

I am frustrated with myself. I haven't had an asthma attack in 10 years and one little bronchitis later and I am huffing and puffing on my inhaler like there is no tomorrow.

I am also frustrated with my youngest's health right now. This is the third round of antibiotics that she has been on THIS YEAR!! Yikes!! The pediatrician said that there isn't anything to worry about. She has missed 8 days of school this year...10%!! If I were paying tuition, I would want 10% of my money back.

So, here are some questions for the much school has your kids missed this year? Is it me or is this the worst year ever for colds?

  1. After having ZERO colds/bugs from August to January, Kurt Jr. , like Dani, was sick 3 times from January to February. He seems to get hit hard like that every so often and will then go through a long period of no illness. Odd, but that's how it goes around here. His pediatrician says, for kids, 8 infections/bugs are common in a year. That seems like a lot to me but so far this year, our kids are almost half way there already!
