When Hugo started preschool in September, he brought the plague with him. I’m not exaggerating when I say he had one nasty cold after the other for the entire month and most of October. Then Fiona got sick, and it was just miserable around here. I felt resigned to it, figuring that since this was his first time exposed to a group of kids every day like that, it would be germ central and eventually he’d get an immunity to it and be all good. It was miserable though. I hate when my kids are sick. They don’t eat and sleep well, they are cranky, and it just seems to make everything more tricky.
Around mid October a friend mentioned they were making similar gummies to these and I knew right away they would be awesome for Hugo. He is obsessed with anything “gummy,” and when I found dinosaur molds I knew it would be perfect. He begs for these. I use them as incentive to finish his dinner and he gets really excited to choose which dinosaur he gets. I’m not joking when I say that he has had 1-2 of these every day since I made my first batch early November and he hasn’t been sick save last week when I ran out. They are such a great way to get all this good stuff in his little body and I’m obsessed….
