I want to be a good mom, who is awesome at helping her children stay healthy! The one who is ready when her kids gets the sniffles has the sixth sense about the aches and pains, and knows when to get a comfy blanket and a movie to help the fever. However, the reality is – I am anything but perfect! Here, I said it, but if you have read any of my previous posts, you already know that! I also have a full time job, blogging business, and desire to sleep at least 5-6 hours a day.
I don’t think I would be able to stay home full time, but every so often I find myself going to work while the kids don’t feel well, even if the only thing I want to do is to stay home, cuddle with them on the couch watching Charlie and a Chocolate Factory.
However, this season I have to be extra careful trying to keep my family healthy. Being 28 weeks pregnant and having two kids in school, I know the virus is just waiting to get me.
My solution? I am moving to a warmer state away from my germy family!
What? That is not possible? I guess, the alternative solution to the problem is to stock up on the essentials and be ready for whatever happens next.
What is on my “Get Ready for Anything List”?
- Children’s Advil
- Advil Allergy & Congestion ReliefAdvil PM
- Robitussin Cough and Chest Congestion DM
At might seem like fun to run to the nearest store, once I realize that there is a trouble in my kingdom that requires immediate pharmaceutical attention, I’d rather have it all on hands, sitting on the shelf and waiting.
Whenever Ms. Sniffles decides to bring something extra from school, I am ready!
– Mommy, can I have a candy?
– Sure, sweetie, I have something better – in your favorite Berry flavor and you don’t even have to chew it!
She thinks I am the best and I am going to enjoy it while sipping my Emergen-C drink, because this is a perfect time for me to load on vitamin C.
