I'm counting the days until spring, until the tulips pop through and I can officially pack our family's boots and heavy coats away, keeping the flip flops at the front of the closet. Not an easy task around the Midwest, mind you. Monday can be 75, Tuesday can drop to 42 and Wednesday can see us back at 73.
6Mother Nature can be a fickle old lady, I tell you. (Just don't tell her I called her old, I beg you... she may just hold it against me and keep those 40s and 50s hanging on even longer.)
In our house, spring and summer mean many things. It is the time when we are the happiest. There is something about the longer days, the sunnier skies, the greener grass and trees, the blooming flowers, the chance to be outside and, most specifically, the opportunity for the small people to play their favorite sports — baseball and softball — that simply brings out the best in everyone.
Did I mention that my husband coaches them both? So, guess who else is happy as a clam? Dad.
But there is a little something else that comes with spring and summer for this happy clan: allergies.
Think runny noses, watery eyes that comes with it all if we don't take the right steps at the right time.
The good news is, there are ways to help.
What tricks and tips do you use to keep your kids happy during spring allergy season so they can spend they time outside doing the things they love? We know it is coming and we're ready and waiting — we'll take the runny noses over the long, cold winter!
