Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

It goes from one extreme to another

The kid I nanny for is 3 and has allergies pretty bad and for some reason mom has been in denial. The doctor prescribed an OTC allergy med for him and when he takes it his allergies clear up.

For some reason mom has disliked giving it to him and I'm not sure why. It doesn't make him sleepy or grumpy or hyper, it just helps with his runny nose and constant sneezing.

So I've been making sure he takes one a day for a while but now all of a sudden he asks for it so now she doesn't have a problem giving it to him. Only she she gives it to him every time he asks.

He had three chewable tablets in 3.5 hours yesterday. All because he asked.

He had another 2 today because he asked her for it.

So when I realized what happened I read off the box to her where it clearly and plainly states kids from 2-6 get ONE tablet once a day and no more than ONE in a 24 hour period.

Thank freaking goodness he hasn't overdosed on it.

Sounds like you need to have a talk with her about it

Tell her what the box says. She sounds like an airhead. My allergies are driving me insane right now I'm about to take something too.

I did. I read the box to her and then said since he's already had 2 today I won't give him any myself.

I did. I read it off to her and told her I won't give him any today since she gave him 2.

So did she not know or did she just not care? That's kinda scary. Lord.

I think it was a mixture of both. How can anyone think 3 tablets in less than 4 hours is ok? Or 2 in an hour (this morning)

She did look a tad surprised when I read off to her that he is only supposed to have one a day.
