Hot Summer Tips

Here is a photo of a lovely plant nestled along side the bicycle path my family rode on over the weekend. Recognize it? “Leaves of three, let them be!”- That’s right, it’s either poison oak or poison ivy. In this case my iphone captured poison ivy in its late spring glory. As we rode along I barked at my family to avoid the poison ivy, reminded them about Lyme ticks, rubbed in sunscreen, fitted bike helmets and fretted over everyone’s hydration status.  Nothing is more jovial and carefree than a bike ride with your pediatrician mom!

Back by popular demand are the links to summer posts which some of you missed last year when we initially launched Two Peds in a Pod.

Yes, you too can start summer by spewing health tips at your children.

    The old rhyme, “Leaves of three, let them be,” has added power when you can see it in living color on your phone’s screen. Thanks for the reminder on how to recognize the dreaded poison ivy plant. My daughter has never been allergic to it, but I have read that that can change with age. In any case, there is no proof that her immunity will immunize her young daughter. This old grandpa will keep a sharp eye out and be sure that both of them give the three leaves a wide berth.
