The Smart Allergy Mom TM Toolkit
Kids say (and do!) the darndest things. As a proud mama of four boys, you can imagine I have lots of funny stories through the years. The one that comes to mind today happened on a spring morning when I was sitting on the living room floor folding laundry with my then two-year-old Charlie. Charlie was a busy little guy, to say the least.
And even though he had a pile of his own fun toys, he kept grabbing at my neatly folded laundry piles. So I was thrilled when a tiny little ant arrived on the scene and captured his attention.
For a few moments, he stayed busy tracking the ant. Then suddenly there was a quick darting motion. And in an instant, the ant was gone. In Charlie’s mouth! While he was perfectly happy with his mid-morning snack, I let out a little scream, and he followed suit. Ha ha. Thankfully he never had any bad dreams or adverse effects from that extra protein serving.
But through the years he’s had other more serious things to deal with, like indoor and outdoor allergies. It’s tough being a kid and wanting to participate in all the fun kid activities when your allergies get in the way. At various times his symptoms have included itchy throat, runny nose, and itchy eyes.
So last fall I finally took him in to his pediatrician to talk about these perpetual symptoms, and Charlie was diagnosed with multiple indoor and outdoor allergies. He’s allergic to various molds, both kinds of dust mites and Bermuda grass. Who knew? Now he takes Children’s Claritin® when his allergy symptoms act up it’s made such a dramatic difference in his life.
His allergies are under control and he’s able to play and participate in the sports and activities he loves.
