It has begun...

Usually Fall is my favorite time of year.  The leaves begin to turn, the menus' are filled with comfort foods, and the children are back in school.  I was okay with the change, until....  I started hearing those sounds that now make me cringe and want to run.  The achoo, cough cough cough, sniffffff...  You've heard them too, the unmistakable sounds of  communicable diseases that summer seems to whisk away.

So for those of us who deal with children of compromised immune systems, please use caution when your out in public. Your child's immunizations keep my child from getting something that could kill her. Hand sanitizer, keeps those nasty germs at bay.  My boys and those who come to visit wash their hands when they come in my door.  I'm encouraging no mouth kissing with Kamryn.  When it takes her  a month to get rid of an illness, a little hand washing isn't much to ask.

Thank you for my little place on the soapbox!
