Allergies, Allergies, Allergies

Thank goodness I have an opportunity to be part of an amazing group of moms because the past week is only the beginning of a really bad allergy bout for my children. It started slowly last week with Goddess complaining about her itchy eyes. The girl is allergic to grass and trees that we know of anyway (she hasn't been to an allergist yet) and insists on picking every flower she finds and than like all children, touches her face with her hands to move her hair or whatever, hence itchy, red, watery eyes. She literally was holding her eye open yesterday when I walked into her class with a birthday cake for her classmates. Thankfully I always have an allergy emergency bag with me.

As part of the Children's Claritin Mom Crew I received a big, beautiful, tote bag stating that I am a Mom Crew Member and enough allergy meds to get our family through hopefully, the next two months. At the right we are going, it may only be a month.

Yesterday I got my first call from the nurse. Handsome was in for his nose. Poor boy looks likes Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Too much blowing has made his nostrils very red and sensitive.

Every morning starting yesterday they receive a morning dose right before school. The school will still call me and tell me that the kids look terrible but at least they will be able to function. The itch will be controlled and they won't get tired. They still have to get through school so Claritin is our lifesaver. Without it, they would be dosed up on a sleepy med that only helps temporarily.

The Teach has some at work and the nurse has some at school for the kids. It will be a terrible season but thankfully, Claritin is here to help.

Are you affected by seasonal allergies?
