You guys… my poor Finster has strep throat.
He’s sad and pitiful. I’m totally clueless. We’ve never been hit by strep throat before.
He came home from school yesterday and said he didn’t feel good; that his throat hurt and he had a headache. I thought he’d just been in the sun too long and that it’d pass. It didn’t. We woke up for school this morning and the first words out of his mouth were, “Mom. I don’t want to go to school today. I feel worse.”
I talked to David about it and we both agreed to get him an appointment. I scored a same day, and at 7:55! It may sound crazy that I was excited about that time, but that meant that if he was clear and good, I could drop him off at school and his perfect attendance would remain in tact. That’s a big deal to an 8 year old, guys! Welp, that didn’t happen. His labs came back positive… poor kiddo! What a Friday the 13th, kind of thing, huh?!
So anyway, I’d been kind of hiding these as a fun little treat for a boring weekend day or something like that, but this seemed like the perfect time to bust out my new favorite candies, SurfSweets. What a better way to brighten his little day, right?! Though he wasn’t able to eat too many, it definitely boosted his little mood and now he keeps talking about how he can’t wait to eat some more when he is feeling a bit better.
I’m OK with that because SurfSweets are made with organic sweeteners and organic fruit juice. I also love that SurfSweets is a member of 1% for the Planet, they support environmental causes that help keep our oceans clean! I mean, who doesn’t love that?!
SurfSweets also are free of corn syrup and contain no artificial colors or flavorings. Not only are they made in the US, but they’re also allergy free! Seriously, they’re packaged in a facility free of the 8 most common allergens; they’re peanut, gluten, and tree nut free!
