Hi again! I hope you all had a chance to check out my first post about Children's Mucinex - but if you haven't you can find it here.
The last time we talked, I shared some of my thoughts about Children's Mucinex with you. And, as parents, we of course never want our kiddos to get sick, but sadly, that's inevitable.
So today I'd like to talk about what we, as parents, do for our little ones when they are sick. As a lover of all things food, you have to know that one of my tricks is comfort food. What's more comforting than soup? I'm not a fan of the canned variety and much prefer to make my littles something home cooked. Here are two of our favorites:
Chicken and Rice Soup
Basically anything that you can top with some shredded cheddar gets my kids attention...and if you tell them there is more cheese mixed in, they are sure to eat it!
My kids are also big cuddlers when they get sick. I shouldn't admit this, but I secretly love it. I'll gladly accept their sickie snuggles! We like to curl up on the couch together and watch a movie or two. Occasionally they'll even fall asleep on me which is the sweetest thing in the world!
Sometimes kids need a little something special when they are under the weather, and my kids favorite treat is a chocolate milkshake. I know it makes their sore throat feel better and chocolate is a necessity when sick...at least in our family. We just can't help ourselves!
Now that Brayden is in school, I find myself cherishing those sick days even more than I did before. I'm so lucky that when he's sick he gets impossibly sweeter and is so content to just be right where I am. I'm also glad that my boys are great medicine takers. I love using Children's Mucinex because it really helps to relieve their cough, stuffy noses and congestion, and just plain makes them feel more like themselves!
