Erin doesn’t get it easy and she is a tough little cookie however she seems to have a new sticker collection that she is enjoying collecting. We all know how kids will do almost anything for a sticker well Erin seems to have taken this to a whole new level. At school there is Mr Bumps room for if the child takes a tumble in the playground or feels poorly. Now I knew that Erin would probably be a frequent visitor due to how much she falls over and bumps her herself but it seems that she is enjoying the attention it brings.
Yesterday she came home sporting the coveted sticker and when I asked her why, she informed me that she had hit her head on the table. She then regaled the tale of how her three friends had also needed Mr Bumps help after various tumbles and falls. This morning she shared with me that she wondered what would happen to her today to get a sticker from Mr Bump! The girl is seriously becoming a hypochondriac for the love of stickers!
This time of year is always challenging for Erin. Whilst the ground and road signs were coated in frost this morning I just hope the icy fingers stay off her chest.
Erin has already had three chest infections since starting school full time in October. She seems to have finally outgrown the croup which was awful to listen too and always scared me, and resulted in many late night trips to hospital. But the winter still plays heavily on her chest and asthma. At times it all just gets too much for her!
Therefore it was lovely to recieve a winter kit from ultra chloraseptic that included some honey and lemon to make Erin a soothing drink. There were also some winter goodies for me. However I will be keeping these handy cards and advice where the children can see them. These are great reminders how to hopefully reduce the likely of catching the winter sore throat.
Using this advice might just help us keep going until Christmas when we can all rest up and relax somewhat. I’d like to thank Ultra Chloraseptic for taking car of us.
