No posting on Monday, I was having fun on another 4th of July weekend! My heart still feels like it's going to burst when I watch the parade-with the American flag and all the servicemen.
There's nothing like a good BBQ, watermelon, corn on the cob and ice cream.
Of course we have to top that off with fireworks, but the smoke always makes me nervous. In fact, whenever I hear one of the kids cough, I say "Who's coughing? Who's coughing?!!" Sometimes my worry is warranted, other times one of my teenagers will say, "Mom, chill. I just swallowed wrong!"
I think the thing with asthma is that you never stop worrying. Of course many days go off without a hitch, but other days you get blind-sided by something you didn't anticipate. Like smoke from fireworks. Can't we be a normal family and just light fireworks on the 4th of July without me hovering and making sure the kids don't get too close to the smoke?!
It also makes me nervous when the kids go on campouts with my husband. I insist on packing all the asthma medication, nebulizer and the adapter for it so my husband can use it in the truck.
But, this year, no problems. #2 son did end up in the hospital one year due to smoke from a forest fire and fireworks, but I'll save that for a Flash Back Friday.
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July and enjoyed the fireworks!
