Home, Again

Home again, Home again, 
Jiggety Jog.

The littles are laying a train track that goes around my desk and chair legs.  Actually, Jack is constructing and Samuel is deconstructing.  At some point fisticuffs might ensue.  The littles and I are at home not because we are sick but because we are trying not to get sick. 

 Greg and I decided to try to keep Samuel and Jack home from church services until at least the beginning-of-the-school-year illnesses start to wane, and maybe even until the end of the flu season.  There have already been several school closings in the area for the flu and strep.  It's enough to make a parent of a child with metabolic issues crazy.  

How much precaution is too much precaution?  Where do faith and intelligence intersect?  Anyone have a chart?

I hear you there! We have been wondering about the same thing with Abby. Should we just hibernate this winter? It is doable with a baby but then again, faith sustains us through our trials and without my weekly church attendance, how strong will my faith be? I also wonder about the years to come. As much as I want to keep her illness free, I can't just keep her home bound every winter. I don't want MCAD to ultimately define her and limit her but it is so hard to let go of the fear!

I so agree- it has been very hard for me to let go of the fear and find the balance of foolishness and necessary precaution. I'm a slow learner. It sounds like you are faster on the uptake:)

Blessings of a flu-free Fall for Abby!
