It seems like we can't go more than three weeks without Kayla or the "substantial child" getting a runny nose or "other issues." (I'm pretty sure the "other issues" with Karis are teething-related. Ugh. But she always manages to load up and ruin an outfit just as we're getting ready to leave the house.)
And the pediatrician seems to think Kayla's problems stem from allergies--which I tend to agree with because I have really bad summer allergies also. But every time she has a bad allergy week it ends up turning into a sinus infection because she hates blowing her nose--and with her excessive noseblowing generally results in really awful bloody noses. (Bloody noses scare me. I've watched too much Sci-Fi where bloody noses are one of the symptoms of alien abduction. Ha! Please. If Kayla had been abducted by aliens, I definitely would've heard an exact play-by-play by now. "And, Mommy...there was this bright light in my room. At first I thought it was Queen Genevieve coming home from the ball! But it wasn't...it was this little green guy. And he took me on his spaceship which actually is kind of like the carriage Cinderella rides in, only bigger....").
I'm thinking we need to get our air ducts in our house professionally cleaned since we've not had that done once in the five years we've lived here. Nasty. Maybe that will help with some of the sickness issues.
Aren't you glad you visited my blog today?
Oh, and I don't actually believe in alien abduction. I just sometimes write whatever comes into my head--unfortunately for you.
