But one sign of the change in season that I could certainly live without? The dreaded “I don’t feel well. I don’t think I can go to school” greeting from any one of my three kids.

Like most families, ours runs best when it’s running as a finely-tuned machine. A sick kid puts a cog in the machine like nothing else. Childcare coverage must be made, carpooling plans rescheduled, trips to doctors need to be fit in..yikes!

For the past couple of months, my kids have been taking daily doses of IronKids Gummies. They taste as good as treats (because my middle guy gags very dramatically on anything that is the slight bit medicinal), but are packed with all the essential good-for-you nutrients that they sometimes miss in their diets of oatmeal and french fries. The gummies are dairy, gluten and nut free, and I’m hoping they’ll compensate for some of the vitamins they may miss out on otherwise.
