I am a busy working mother with three children, a very stressful job, and a husband who really can’t be counted on for much other than to allow me to make every important decision when it comes to our kids.
I’ve been reading up on the new immunization for Spring Fever, and trying to figure out if I should carve out some time in an already out of control schedule to bring the kiddos to their pediatrician for this shot.
The doctor’s office doesn’t seem to want to give me any useful information about the immunization, and all the literature is split between those who feel the shot is a must and those who say it should be avoided at all costs.
I want what’s best for my children. When I was their age, a little Spring Fever after a harsh Winter was considered a good thing. The thing is, if one of them catches it, all three are likely to come down it and that means total chaos for my life.
So what are your Deep Thoughts on the Spring Fever immunization? I know I can count on you to take a side and make a compelling argument.
Harried The Mom
I am not a doctor, but I often write about one on my blog. I am also a huge fan of Spring, and even more so this year after the horrific Winter we’ve just endured.
I have never been a parent, so I cannot speak from experience on that topic, but I do get the gist of how parenting works.
Clearly, you want to do what’s best for your children, and it doesn’t sound like your husband is much help when it comes to making decision like this one.
Luckily for you, I am a decision maker and I am ready to dispense my sage advice.
I advise to you to get infected with Spring Fever!
I’m suggesting that you allow yourself to come down with the fever, too. It sounds like you could use a little time off from your busy schedule to spend some quality time with your kiddos.
I had the interns do some research, and it doesn’t look like anyone has ever died from Spring Fever. If anything, the quality of life becomes better after infection. Subjects are more relaxed, smile more often, and don’t sweat the little things as much.
Spring Fever…catch it now!
Hope you follow my advice and have a little fun.
