High fever, sore throat, sore ears - oh winter I love you so. This week I decided to go and get my annual flu shot. Boy it was some shot since I received it on Tuesday I have been unable to lift my head of the pillow with all the usual flu symptoms - aches and pains, fever, cough ect... I guess this was what the Doctor forgot to tell me after he dapped me with a needle. Now the question is whether I give the flu shot to my kids. To give it or not that is the question. Any advice?

Any advice on giving a child medicine at 2 a.m. when they are burning up with a fever and refuse to have grape, cherry or bubble gum flavoured Tylenol.

New Years Resolutions

So it is that time of the year when we all begin to think about our new years resolutions. My all time favourite is committing to loosing weight. What this commitment means is that from now until January 1, 2011 I will eat everything in site - cake, cup cakes, candies - after all my dieting will begin in the new year. Yeah right by the time new years rolls around I will be 10 pounds heavier and we all know that by Jan 2, 2011 I will have fallen off the wagon again. So this year I am nor going to commit to loosing weight but rather trying to get more active. After all how can a mom do without that chocolate bar after she has spent the entire night nursing her babies fever. So ladies lets just get more active and enjoy the sweet things in life and it should all balance out..i will let you know how my number one resolution goes. Happy new year to you and your family wishing you all the best for 2011.
