How We Deal When Sick Gets Real

Last night I went to bed a little earlier than normal because I was just feeling a bit off.  When I woke up this morning I realized why when I tried to swallow and found I had a sore throat and my head felt all stuffy.  I crossed my fingers that no one else had this crud, but when I walked out into the living room I saw that sick got real in my house.  My poor little Willow Bean was curled up on the couch looking rather miserable while coughing and as she said “dripping snot boogies.”  A few weeks ago I shared how we always keep a well stocked medicine cabinet for times like these and so I grabbed the Children’s Advil® and Children’s Robitussin® to get her feeling back to normal.

Pfizer Pediatric Products with Willow

Both of these products have a great tasting grape flavor so my girls don’t give me any trouble about taking their medicine.  While Children’s Advil® will relieve a fever fast it is also great for easing aches and pains that like to accompany colds.  Plus it’s the perfect solution for kids as young as two years old all the way up to eleven years old which means this one medicine can be used for all four of my girls who range in age from two to eight years. Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion DM is now for children four years and over which meant I could use it to help ease Willow’s chest congestion, mucus, and cough.

One thing I’ve noticed since being a mom is that once I give my kids medicine and they start to feel better instead of wanting to rest they try to jump right back to normalcy which typically means running around like crazy people.  As adults we know it is important to rest to allow our bodies to heal, but kids almost need to be forced to rest.  So instead of tying them down to the couch (just kidding), I need to find other ways to get them to willingly rest.  A few new movies always seems to do the trick.  Today I introduced Willow to The Sandlot.  I’m fairly certain every parent out there has watched The Sandlot, but have you shared it with your kiddo?  We had a wonderful time this afternoon cuddling on the couch and laughing as Scotty Smalls and the rest of his friends tried over and over again to retrieve his stepfather’s baseball signed by Babe Ruth out of Mr. Mertle’s junkyard without getting eaten by The Beast.
