Us as we are ...

Reuben suffers from allergies ... honestly, all of his symptoms sound just like what Eli had at his age! So, we work to keep symptoms at a minimum, dusting a lot and when seasons get bad, he is on his meds. So, preventative inhaler, rescue inhaler, and now since allergy season is at a peak for a bit, Claritin every day. But, since we eliminated him drinking cow's milk everyday, his mucus situation is so much better!

But, yesterday morning, we were reading his Bible together. And there was a picture of a lady, with a happy tear on her cheek. And Reuben looks at me, points at her;

"Oh Mom, look! She has allergies too."

Made me chuckle a little bit, and then I had to explain happy tears and that the Bible wasn't picturing people with allergies. = ) Poor kid, that is truly what he has to live with most days.
