Getting Wiser

Experience really is the best teacher.

While I know I still have a LOT
to learn as a parent,
I also know that I have learned so much
about parentING from having my three children.

I also have learned to listen to myself better.
The past few days, I have been feeling under the weather.
Instead of ignoring that and pushing through it,
I have been trying to take it a little easier,
listen to my body and rest when I needed to.

Long story short,
my youngest got off the bus today
and started crying over a sore throat.

I know that he has a pretty high pain tolerance
and doesn't complain about pain often,
so I knew to take him in the clinic this afternoon
instead of waiting like I would have for the other two.

Sure enough,
open door and insert strep.

I've called the parents of the two children
who were here yesterday to give them a heads up
and tomorrow Trey and I will hang out.

Hopefully, the rest of us can avoid the germ.
I have Lysoled well!

Poor Trey, strep is awful! I hope he gets well soon and no one else gets it.
