Are You Ready for Sick Season? #SickJustGotReal #AMomCanDream

I am the puke target in my family. Everyone family seems to have one–the person that always gets puked on no matter where they are or who is sick. It is like I have a big bull’s-eye saying “Aim Here!” I have been covered in vomit more times than I can count from my own children and other pe ople’s kids too. I am not sure why, but if a child is feeling yucky they somehow always manage to be in my arms or on my lap when the need to wretch hits. I guess it is a blessing that throw up does not bother me that much. I figure it is nothing that a nice hot shower can’t fix so it really is not a big deal. But I can definitely relate to the video provided by below when we are in the middle of sick kids.  

In all seriousness though when the kids are sick it is a stressful time in our house. No one tells you how hard it is going to be when your sweet child comes down with a fever and you are worrying and praying for them to get better. You feel helpless, but thank goodness we live in modern times and we are not left without help. I love that fact that good nutrition, lots of sleep and hand washing will help keep my kids in good health, but when the germ bugs do come around, I like to be able to make my kids comfortable while their body fights of the yuck. I trust Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp® to help my children.

I think one of the worst parts of one of my kids getting sick is the impending doom that the sickness will be making be rounds through the rest of the family and we will be stuck in the sick zone for at least two weeks or more. And of course the absolute worst is if I end up catching the bug, because we all know that if mama is sick she still has to take care of everyone else, and being sick while trying to manage the house is no fun!
