Ignorant bliss

Two weeks to go until our newest addition to our family goes and has his skin prick tests. He'll be just over 3 months old - poor little thing. I was filling out some childcare enrolment forms to make sure he has a spot for next year and it was quite different to tick the NO box for allergies or medication. Of course the real answer is that we don't know yet... things may change in a couple of weeks.

There's hope - our second boy is chunky as chunky comes and a much darker complexion, not like our first born. So maybe this boy is completely different in physique? But we've also noticed with trepidation the increase in small rash areas across his body. Is this hormonal? Is this normal? Is this signs of an allergy???

For me, this next two weeks is my chance to eat in ignorance before knowledge possibly brings restrictions on my diet. How funny, it sounds like the Garden of Eden from the Bible! Before there was knowledge of good and evil, man was free to roam and free to enjoy everything there was to be enjoyed - innocence. But the desire to know more, the desire to be in charge meant that man's decisions brought knowledge and understanding of all that was wrong as well as all that was right. Innocence was gone and new restrictions, new consequences came into play.

Well, perhaps that's where the similarities end. The reality for us is that whatever allergies that may be present are already there. There's no going back to the innocent beauty of the Garden of Eden. Knowledge could well bring new restrictions and a greater understanding of the consequences should we move beyond what we know to be safe, but it will also provide us with a roadmap towards a healthy, happy little boy.

Hmm, in the Christian faith, Jesus, many years later, provides the way back to God, back to the way things should be. I wonder whether years from now, there will also be a way to restore our children's bodies back to the way they should be - free from the suffering of allergies.

Wouldn't that be heaven??
