Now that my boys are around other children for the majority of the day and the weather has gotten chilly, the start of the inevitable cold and flu season is here. In fact, just last week I had to bring Zackary home from school early because his stomach was hurting. It was a good thing I did; a few minutes after getting him settled on the couch with a blanket and a bucket, he started vomiting.
For the most part my boys are incredibly healthy and hearty. Born and raised on the prairies, they’re resiliant kids that tend to beat back colds even when other children are knocked out by the latest virus. But when they do get sick, they really get sick! That’s why I try to make sure that they’re always as healthy as they can be.
