Wednesday, October 7
Hello all. Another week gone by. Geez, time flies when you don't pay attention. This week on Wednesday Wisdom I wanted to talk about the swine flu. I have taken my 6 month old to the doctor twice this week. And there was many families there with their children. We do not take our babies to the doctor unless we know we have to, like their vaccines, or when they are really sick ( we wait 3 days ). Well, there was more than half the kids that didn't need to be there, or they didn't seem like they were sick. More than half the parents looked like they were off in lala land.
I get so angry when I saw a child sitting next to their parent and they cough or sneeze without covering their mouth and the parents don't even budge.
I know there's all this hype about swine flu, but it really is all about your own will and common scence. Before all this happened did you not cover your mouth or wash your hands after going to the bathroom or what not? In my family we always do. If one of us got sick with any type of flu it would be a shock to both my husband and I. There are times that we let the dishes pile up or go a few days before washing the sheets, but we are pretty clean, hygeine wise. The only thing we still need to work on is brushing our teeth, ha.
The one thing we do worry about is our 5 year old in school. Last year we had a hard time getting rid of lice that she got some school. That was just gross! This year she hasn't gotten them because I think she remembers the late night of me going through her hair strand by strand. She is a smart little girl.
I just can't wait till we move away from here. I mean we live in a place that is like 98% hispanic and I know that lots, including us, can' afford health insurance, but most children do get health insurance via Medicaid, including us, but we wash our hand and take baths daily. We try our best to stay healthy. We try not to look poor, not just for others but for ourselves. The other day while at Wal-Mart I saw a lady looking sad, poorly dressed, with 4 kids, 3 of them in the shopping cart, they looked sad as well. I don't know what happened, but they also looked a bit dirty and wearing tattered clothing. If we let our "poorness" get to us and let our selfesteem go down, I'm sure we'd look like that too. But I would hand wash our clothes in the lake if I had to so that we could stay afloat and feel good about ourselves and I would feel good because I was trying my hardest to do what I could do for my family, not just give up!
Okay, I'll stop before I upset someone or myself for that matter.
I found this picture.... thought it was funny
