I have said it a million times since bringing B home!
Wash your hands. Have you washed your hands? Are your hands clean?
I tripled my efforts once school started!
I know that with two big kids in school, the odds might not be in our favor to keep sickness out of the house. To keep little man from getting anything yucky too soon!
Guess who brought the first round of yuck home?
True, I could have picked it up anywhere, but working with kids means the odds are I caught a bug from one of them. My first day back, I encountered several snotty-nosed kids! I washed. I squirted anti-bacterial liberally. I washed again!
Friday afternoon, I felt the weirdness in my nose and eyes. It escalated and de-escalated quickly over the course of the weekend. Thank goodness it was a mild version!! Hopefully, thanks to my quick efforts with the netipot, vaporizing, lots of vitamin C, and some mild drugs, I sent my cold on its way without infecting anyone else. I upheld my basic baby responsibilities, but tried to be hands-off (while others were more hands-on) the baby as much as possible.
I pray it worked!
The bummer is that I have been ingesting healthy shakes, and the kids and I have been doing our daily vitamin C megadoses, but it still sneaked in.
The kids and I have not partaken of flu shots the last few years, but I feel that we might need to do so this year to keep the sweet baby as protected as possible.
