About a month ago it seemed like everyone had kids dropping like flies from being sick. Facebook was chalk full of status updates of parents being home with kids. I thought we’d been able to avoid it until about a week and a half ago when Doodle woke up saying he felt like he was going to get sick. I tell you what, I was thankful I had the opportunity to work with Smiley360 to do a review of Children’s Mucinex. It was good timing, unfortunately.
Ugh, poor kid. Have I ever mentioned how thankful I am to be a work at home mom? I was able to send him back to bed to get more rest with a water bottle and a puke bucket.
He woke up a couple of hours later looking miserable so I sat him in front of the tv for him to watch Frozen. We had just gotten the DVD and hadn’t seen it since it was in the theater. He cuddled up in a blanket and chilled out watching the movie.
While he was laying there, it dawned on me how nice it would be if someone knew I was home with a sick kid to bring us a little Get Well basket. It’s nice to be able to stay home with a sick kidling, but not so easy to get out and leave the sick one home.
Knowing how my kids are when they get sick, I put together a little basket I knew would come in handy for other parents with their own sick ones.
1. Children’s Mucinex
3. Tea Tree Oil
4. Lip Balm
7. Water Bottle
We always keep tea tree oil around because when my youngest and oldest get sick they both usually end up with ear infections. We’ve found the oil helps either keep the ear infections at bay or helps lessen them. I learned years ago to change out their toothbrushes when they’re sick so that when they’re better they’re not brushing their teeth with a nasty, germ laden toothbrush. I also like having a water bottle with the child who’s sick and a second one in the fridge. The Children’s Mucinex helps give relief of stuffy noses, cough, and congestion when our kids have cold symptoms. Be sure to use this $2 coupon http://bit.ly/ZoUtYh to save!
