In Texas we do not always get to experience every season for very long, except for the hot months. That season lasts forever!! lol
It’s like the seasons can’t make up their mind and we go back and forth with hot and cold and this makes every sick.
Fall is here, but what does that mean? One day it is 90 degrees and the next morning it is 55 degrees. We leave the house in jackets and by noon the kids are taking layers off.
Soon kids will start getting chest colds, runny noses, fever here and there, sore throats and other flu-like symptoms. It’s inevitable with six kids in the house.
That said, I have some tricks up my sleeve to survive the flu season.
As a kid I always remember my mom having Vicks on hand.
She would rub it on our chest and sometimes on our back. Just opening it in the store today and taking a whiff took me back to 1982 when I was five years old.
All these years later I reach for Vicks when my kids are coming down with any sickness that resembles a cold or the flu.
There is nothing worse than constantly sneezing.
Wait, there is one thing that is worse than that.
When your nose alternates all day long from stopped up to non-stop running.
This makes for the driest and most cracked red nose ever.
One of the main reasons we love Puffs with Lotion. You can feel the difference immediately.
Aside from keeping Vicks and Puffs on hand this time of year, I always keep some activities near by for myself or the kids when we feel sicknesses coming on. Big kid and adult coloring books are always a winner around here.
We also just love read alouds in general and books with mazes and puzzles in them too.
Another thing I love to keep near is tea bags for hot tea and candles. It just makes sicknesses feel better. The hot tea warms your throat and the candle just brightens the room enough with cheer to remind you, This too shall pass.”.
