When I was a kid the flu lasted 2 days and was spent having a 102 degree fever and getting to stay on the couch watching cartoons. This was a GOOD thing! One on one time with my mommy, who'd snuggle with me and make me soup. I'd fall asleep without realizing it, wake up groggily without realizing it, all during an episode of the Flintstones. Know what the flu is today? Something to fear and (uh oh, here she goes) be vaccinated against. In fact one of the only immunizations to still (in most cases) carry thimerasol is the flu vaccine. Go to the vaccine awareness blog here on my list off to the right for more info, but basically beware of Prevnar specifically and flu vaccines in general. I always say "I'd never tell families to stop vaccinating altogether, I just say be educated." Ok that's true for the biggies like polio, etc. The flu is not a biggie, so I'm gonna be bossy after all! The flu doesn't count. Let your kids get sick for a day, let them stay home and strengthen their little immune systems, let them watch an old episode of Flintstones if you can find it:) Snuggle them and don't let their fever get TOO high. Other than that, LET'S CHILL OUT!
