I've posted before about how hard it is to be the mom when you
feel like death and your kids still feel like super-heros. As awful
as it sounds, it's easier when they're the ones knocked out by
these nasty little cold and flu bugs.
I'm all about pre-producing the moment now as we enter these
months of barf bowls, snotty noses and spiky temps. Go check those
expiration dates, make a little sick-day survival kit of your own,
and let's take care of ourselves shall we?!
Now... go ahead and tell us what always makes YOU feel better on
days that you'd like to dig a deep, sound-proof hole and crawl your
cute self in. I take like three warm tubs a day, wrap my soft scarf
around my neck and buy the softest moist lotion packed tissues I
can find. And then there's the Ramen noodles. Just one comment, and
you're entered to WIN a "Feel Better Kit" from the lovely people at
I'll pick the lucky winners first thing Wed....so GO! Go
comment, and tell your yucky feeling friends to comment too.
Now back to bed.
