It's been surprisingly hard trying to write here these last two months.... and not for a lack of things to say! Everyone that reads is aware (by now, anyway) that Bobble was sick for pretty much seven straight weeks. We were able to finally get over the illnesses, and we had a fantastic week last week! He was doing great at Montessori, he was sleeping beautifully, he was eating really well..... it was all just awesome. I missed having a happy little boy. I also thoroughly enjoyed having good sleep again!
Every Friday our local library offers a
program for little kids (under age 5) to play for a couple hours. It's
free, it allows for social interaction (for me and him!), and
they have lots of toys that he just doesn't get exposed to anywhere else
(like those really expensive playmats and structures made out of that
material). My husband suggested I take him, and I thought that it would
be a brilliant idea because he simply hasn't been in two months.
Guess who was exhibiting signs of a cold the very next day?
*headdesk* Now, I haven't caught anything, so I'm holding on to that
sliver of hope that it really is the fact his bottom two canines are
visibly coming through.... but man. Talk about FRUSTRATING.
I'm very excited that we signed up to get a sample from www.wishgardenherbs.com
a bit ago, and we actually got it in the mail yesterday. I heard about
that company from a coworker (who uses namely holistic 'medicines'), and
then saw that they had a FREE SAMPLE offer going on. It's hard
to turn down a chance to try something for free when you wanted to try
it anyway, so I signed up for a free sample of Kick-it Immune (For
Kids), and we got it in the mail yesterday. I gave Bobble a half dose of
it (simply to see if he had any reactions), and he didn't seem to mind
it, though it smells like a shot of some random adult beverage. I let
him taste a droplet first, and he signed 'more', so I gave him the whole
dropper.... to which he signed 'all done' after. It was probably pretty
strong. It did say it could be mixed with water for taste or simply
placed under the tongue. I went the direct route. Anywho, here's to
hoping that this stuff works. It's meant to boost the natural immune
system and response, so I'm crossing my fingers. Obviously taking him to
the doctor over and over (and over and over) didn't do diddly squat.
company also has a bunch of other products, though not everything is
available for a free sample. They do have things for Ear aches,
calming/soothing, upset tummies, colic, cold season, coughs.... many
other things. Oh, did I mention for helping you sleep? The above are
also for children or infants, though they do have adult things, too. I
decided to try this out since these are made with organic and
wild-harvested botanicals, and they are herbal remedies. Again, we all
saw how much the medicines from the doctor did for Bobble. *cough*
So, here's to hoping he gets better (and stays
better!) soon.... so I can write more here! I have plans for this blog,
big plans... I just need my little guy to not be sick all the time so I
can do something about them!
