It's cold and flu season.... we're ready to help when you need us. DID YOU KNOW? Some common cold and cough medi- cations can have negative interactions with medications you are taking or a condition you have. Consult one of our pharmacists for a recommendation. We asked parents: What's the most ridiculous thing someone has said to you about your interracial family? On one of my first grocery shopping trips with my daughter, the cashier asked me if she was adopted. When me and my husband are out with our daughter and my son from a previous relationship, it's funny to watch the waitresses trying to figure it out. — Erin S., Poughquag My son's teacher told me my son doesn't talk or act black. — Nicole N., Wappingers When my husband is not with me people ask me what race he is and when I'm not with him they ask what race I am. At least when they ask questions that means they aren't assuming. — Erin J., Woodridge All three of my children look different. I get asked if they are all mine, how long have I been nannying, are they from donors and if they all have the same daddy. — Adriana M., Wappingers Falls I was visiting my daughter's preschool class last year and the little boy sitting across from us kept bringing up how I am white, and my daughter is brown. My daughter got angry and said, "My shirt is pink." She doesn't see us being different. — Samara K., Warwick One lady walked up to my son and asked him what setting he keeps the tanning bed at because his skin was beautiful. She said she has spent thousands of dollars trying to be his color. My son responded with "just eat beans and you'll be brown like me." — Tina M., West Point
