  1. Hi Jackie – you do not know me, but I am graduate student at SUNY New Paltz and an aspiring teacher who observed in Patrick’s class last semester, and I am currently observing the 6th graders in Ally’s class. I have been following your updates and find your genuine account of this harrowing experience so touching, and I think about Ana often. I am only adding to the conversation now because I have actual (potential) advice to offer in the realm of sanitizer products. I have very dry skin and I also hate using chemical products at home. When my daughter was born in 2010 (in the midst of flu season, no less) I really wanted to keep germs away without resorting to the big bottles of Purell you mentioned. A friend of mine, a certified germaphobe who knew about my preference for milder, less chemical products, bought me a bunch of Babyganics foaming hand sanitizers and they are basically the best thing ever. No smell and very gentle. Check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

    Another option I have used, especially if I feel worried I’ve already been exposed to germs and want to stop the bug in its tracks, is Thieves oil. Amazing natural cure-all…http://www.youngliving.com/thieves-essential-oil/Thieves-Oil

    Good luck to your family and I hope Ana has an incredible time at the dance on Friday!
