That first sneeze, cough or sniffle. The first sign of a runny nose. That late night call from down the hall, ‘MOM!’ And the dreaded, heart-stopping words, ‘Mom, my stomach hurts!’ That one gets me every time. Every. Single. Time.
The irony of the timing of this post is not lost on me. The week before Thanksgiving my 10 yr. old was diagnosed with pneumonia. As a mom, this was a first for me. Thankfully, he has never been this sick before. But just two days before Thanksgiving, instead of shopping for turkey and planning a delicious menu, we were getting chest x-rays.
By now I’m sure you know, the holidays don’t always go as planned but as long as you’re armed and ready for battling those colds and ailments this season, you can have fun making the best of it.
