My poor babies! They are all coughing so bad! They are all staying home. Praying there is nothing wrong with them.

I am treating them by mixing a tablespoon of vanilla extract with a tablespoon of honey and making them take it. It tastes good to them, and it helps stop the cough! Hopefully, the older two will return to school Monday after treating them with this.

Please say your prayers for my children. They all are so sick, it hurts my heart so.


  1. Cut an onion in half and tape it to their foreheads.

    God made onions to cure the flu.

  2. Please tell me that the kids you are giving honey to are older than one year! If not, that child runs a risk of contracting botulism.

    1. Only the oldest girls get the vanilla extract or the honey. Matthew will not get any until he is two.

    2. Good for you! I'm glad you are wise to this! I had a bacteriology class in school, and cringed at the idea that you were giving your smallest kids honey as well. My Dad is SOOOO paranoid about home canned stuff despite the fact that I know about deadly bacteria, so he won't touch anything home-canned with a ten foot pole!

    3. I'm also proud of you for having good, common sense in not potentially infecting your kids with botulism.

  3. I thought you said you homeschooled?


I would be delighted to hear what you have to say. Please comment and I will joyfully respond!
