Camp, Flu and a Review

First, the review:

Both girls went to “camp” at our local drop and play center last week. If you’re in the greater Woodinville area, this place is the best – http://www.thenestkids.com. You drop the kids off for a few hours, they play, make new friends and you get to go grocery shopping with any screaming howler monkeys distracting you. Do you remember the last time you went grocery shopping by yourself? The quiet? The aisles you can just leisurely walk up and down in? It’s heaven. They also have music classes, preschool, etc.

Both girls took music class when they were babies with Ms. Beth, who is the owner. The woman seriously LOVES kids. Like one of those people that is just Mary Poppins rolling around. She’s a saint and we love her.

 

Look at that woman. She's amazing...and clearly having the time of her life surrounded by tiny humans.

So anyway, the girls were at camp there 4 days for 4 hours each day and they loved every second of it. Parker, who has an immune system like a little tank, is totally fine. But yesterday, Natalie (who picks up any bug at all) woke up with a 102.9 degree fever. Kid plague strikes again! Which is inevitable in a setting like that, but it makes me wonder how Natalie is going to do in preschool. I’ve heard good things about Elderberry Syrup, has anyone tried it? I need something to boost her immune system other than the usual Vitamin C and stuff.

Apparently not everyone has gotten this memo

Making anything remotely sauce or gravy oriented is not my special skill (just ask my Husband about my Thanksgiving gravy. Better yet, don’t), but to help Punkin’s little body fight off the onslaught of germs she’s going to come in to contact with in a few weeks, I think I’ll try it. I’ll keep you all (which I think is the one person in the Philippines who clicked my blog on accident once) informed on how it goes!

Sometimes I'm the mom I want to be, sometimes I'd like to be better. Every day I learn something new, "hack" this mom gig, so to speak. Just thought I'd share it, maybe help someone else along the way...
