We are less than a week out from the first day of the school year. Because life has been happening I need to get the kids a few things. Along with the regular school items I also have some medical must-haves.
“I am in partnership with HealthPlan USA and they have provided me with compensation for this campaign. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.”
The Man-Child is playing football so his shot records had to be current. I don’t even have time to tell you how worried I am about him getting hurt. This is his first time playing football and he is a freshman in High School. Did I also mention some of these kids look like they already have two kids in college? Thus far he has hurt his wrist and his rib area. *sigh*
I need to fix him up as quickly as possible when he gets hurt. I also don’t have time to pull him from school to sit in a waiting room an hour after my scheduled appointment time.
He wears glasses and he is on his third pair in less than a years time. Are you counting my money yet like I am? He also has food allergies and requires an EpiPen so I need to get a new twin pack for the school and for home. Considering I have allergies, and so does The Man-Child, I’m strongly considering looking at kits similar to those you can find here with this food intolerance test UK as an example, to test the rest of our family to ensure no one else has any allergies that could surprise us in the future. Anyway, the EpiPens, we had some but they expired a month ago. Oops, we could be looking at needing a lot more should any of the other kids test positive! We have health insurance and although it is helpful, more help is even better so I signed up for the HealthPlan USA.
HealthPlan USA is a new way to take charge of your health care costs. A membership provides you discounts on a range of health-related services including prescription drugs, dental, vision and telehealth access. You’ll get access to medical professionals at a fraction of the cost of a traditional doctors visit. When you have a concern or emergency, you can talk to a doctor right from your computer or mobile device. Hello, no line no waiting. All of this becomes way more important when you have kids because they have trips and falls, through no fault of yours, that may need doctor attention. Also, your child’s first dentist appointment age is younger than you think, so being prepared with dental coverage helps you financially and your family’s health in total!
I wonder if they can tell me how to cut down on the smell after hours of football practice in 90+ degree weather. This is all new so stay tuned, I will report back on our experience. I will let you know when tryouts are and if he makes the team, and how I will survive it all.
