I was watching some videos on Youtube from "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show." He has a segment each week where he reads off tweets from the weekly hash tag. One segment was called Hashtags: Dadvice
It's pretty funny to watch him read off the tweets. This episode had advice from dads to their sons.
This is what one tweet from @mikeruss39 said
"After the first time I got drunk my dad told me to be careful. 'Alcoholism doesn't just run in this family - it gallops.' "
I thought that would be the perfect thing for me to say about asthma in my family.
Asthma doesn't just run in our family - it gallops!
My parents, siblings and I all have asthma. All three of my teenagers have asthma, as do many of my nieces and nephews.
The same can be said for Hubby's side of the family - grandparents, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews all have asthma.
So, when Hubby and I married, it was the perfect storm. Our kids didn't have a chance of NOT inheriting asthma (and allergies.) And if my teenagers marry someone later who has allergies and asthma on their side of the family, the genetic defect will continue!
Sigh. I hate asthma. But at least our family can have a funny quote about it now!
