It Never Fails


The start of a new school year means GERMS, GERMS and more GERMS! Before school began, I started pumping my kids with Vitamin C. Well, it didn't work. First it was Gavin...first week of school, he's sick to his stomach, throwing up and a head cold. He missed school the first week.



Next it was Luke. Fevers, coughs and sneezing. Then Dylan...again!! And baby + mucus = Pink eye! Gross!!! Then it was Sydney. Fevers, head cold, sneezing, etc. She has now missed 2 days of school. This does not look good! These schools are nazi's when it comes to missing. They will send truancy officers after you mid school year. I hate it!



Then I started running around the house with Clorox bleach wiping everything down and spraying Lysol all over the place. And guess what...now I have it! UGH! I felt like I was going to die yesterday. But my sweet hubby Scott, came home early from work, made chicken noodle soup for his sick girls (me and Sydney), unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, bathed the kids, brought me dessert and even put Dylan down for bed. I'm pretty fortunate to have a hubby that can cook but last night he went above and beyond. Thanks Scooter, your wifey loves ya!!! I needed the rest.


We've been taking the Vitamin C, but if anyone else out there knows of any other good immune boosting concoction, I'm all ears!!

Girl you are a hoot! I didn;t know all of that was going on....YIKES!

We load up on 2 Echinacea paired with one Ester C, before bed, if we feel it coming. If it sneaks up during the day and you feel cruddy, one whole pressed garlic in a sandwich staves it off till the Ester C and Echinacea kicks in...let me know if you try it.

For kids, that won't or can't do pills...I dunno...

Oh yeah teach them the duck and dive...when someone sneezes or coughs in public we cover our mouths and noses. I don't care if I offend rude people...lol

I have a 'bulk', alpha 20 C and vitafruit here for you!
Back to basics! lots of water, and get the blood alkaline, with less acid foods...
chicken soup is good.
your body is building up immunity as you go through it too.
Love, Gma Donna

Ditto on the sickness, Drue and Presley have had sore throats all week and now I'm not feeling so Bueno. Scott bring me some soup too!

I have decided that with the paranoia over swine flu and the other nasties going around that children should be able to be excused from what they miss when they are home sick, with a doctors note verifying that yes indeed, they are sick. Because sometimes even little symptoms can spread germs but we send our kids to school because the hassle of missing work and tests is just too much.
