The medicine thread made me think......


Fall is upon us, and the kids have started school.

my kids are sometimes sick enough for school (they provide a checklist of what to keep a child home for) but not always sick enough for the doctor.

Meds or no meds, how often do you take your (sick) kids to the doc?

I don't know about getting through it as far as having sick kids, but as far as keeping my kids healthy - balanced meals, plenty of sleep, exercise and lots of water.

We don't give a lot of otc meds and thankfully since the boys were toddlers, we haven't had a whole lot of reasons, outside of a yearly checkup, to see the doctor.

That would be a bit scary and why I do them in the summer every year.
