At the Doctor

I took Brecken to the doctor yesterday. He has been getting sick A LOT the last 2 winters, and I have been wondering if he might have a parasite or something.

The doctor said that it can often take a child 1-2 winters to really adjust to the new germ pool, and that given that he has gotten sick less this year, than last, that was a good sign. Apparently only having one major illness a year, like I was used to, is the exception, rather than the rule.

I’m happy to have the peace of mind. And this time she didnt even give me a hard time about our vaccination status! Last time she told me “it was the best gift I could give my kids.” No, thanks, I’ll pass on the 1 in 64 rate of boys who have autism (1 in 150 in general).

My name is Alyssa. I live with my husband and 2 young boys on our farm in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I have been in the planning to launch a small scale farm from our acreage for the last 2 years. Much to my excitement 2010 brings the start of my dream to fruition. We are starting small, but will continue to grow as a valuable local food source in our community. We are an unschooling, attachment parenting family, with a love for the outdoors, and a passion for sustainable farming. I am a stay (and now work) at home mom. I enjoy reading, sewing, cooking/baking, canning and photography.
