Welcome back to school….three of the four of us are on antibiotics for strep throat! It started with me (I know, right?), then Katelyn, now Megan. Kevin is a sitting duck. It’s a good time to remind everyone of a few things:
- If your kid is sick, keep them home from school.
- Wash your hands.
- Don’t live in a bubble.
I refuse to keep my family in a bubble, even though two of the four of us are immune-suppressed. We go out to eat, we go to parks, we hang out with friends, we go to the grocery store. I send my kids to public school with hundreds of other children. It is what it is.
Oh and a fun fact-I just heard of a positive flu case in our area yesterday. Yes, positive flu in September. It sounds like it’s going to be a doozie of a season. Everyone hang onto your hand sanitizer!
