Time Out for Allergies…

Kleenex Galore!
Allergies BE GONE!

Poor Malachy has allergies. I guess it was inevitable since both Shien and I have allergies. Just didn’t think he would have them at such a young age. A bunch of his classmates have it really bad, too. Wish he could take medicine, like me, but he’s been pretty good, considering. Thank goodness he can blow his nose! I seriously didn’t learn how to blow my nose until college. My “snorting” bugged Shien so much that I decided if I was going to marry this girl, I better learn to stop making gross noises and learn to blow my nose! πŸ˜‰
So, when Malachy’s nose gets really stuffy, he is actually able to tell us he needs help to blow his nose, even if it’s in the middle of the night. One night, he was coughing from his drainage and stuffed up nose, so Shien went to help him. After blowing his nose, he thanked her and went right back to bed.
Not only does his nose get stuffy, though. His eyes get itchy and he sometimes licks his lips till he’s pink all around.
Hoping this allergy season goes away soon! Back at my dad’s house, I once cut out this huge headline from a newspaper that said, “ALLERGIES BE GONE!” It’s still hanging in my old room! πŸ˜‰ Maybe I should get it and post it in our bedroom for Malachy. πŸ™‚
