Do You Share These Same Thoughts In The Video A Mom Can Dream?


A special thank you goes out to Pfizer for sponsoring this post about the Video A Mom Can Dream and giveaway. Opinions expressed are that of my own.

Uninterrupted bathroom time, picture perfect recipes that match the ones on Pinterest, and a Red Wine Dispenser in your kitchen? (Mine would be getting caught up on my favorite shows on demand) A Mom can dream right?

However, when it comes to your family being under the weather, those wants get put aside and the top priority is making your family better. Just like the parent in the Video A Mom Can Dream, my top priority is the health and comfortably of my children.

Not too long ago I shared a way that could help my kiddos to feel better, as well as information on how to be prepared with products created specifically for children with fevers and colds. Be sure to check out Sick Day Basket Idea for Kids.

In addition Pfizer has resources at their site Sick just got real™ that can also help aid in the treatment of your children.

Sick Day basket for Kids

They not only have a Sick Weather Tracker that that can notify you of common childhood illnesses reported in your area, but they also provide a Sick Sense Relief Finder so they can help recommend a product. Of course this information does not replace the advice of a Medical Doctor.

In addition, they also created a group of Sick Hacks to help make your little one feel better like a Sneeze & Stow Tissue Box, Slip-Free Sick Socks, and Sick Day Dose Tracker.

Do you have any special hacks for your kids to help them feel better or to pass the time when they are sick?

I hope you get a little laugh from the Video A Mom Can Dream, and know that Moms and Dads everywhere are in the same boat when it comes to taking care of a sick little one!

    Arrange their food in a smile. If they’re having a hard time keeping food down, or the doctor has recommended they stick to bland eats, the least you can do is liven things up a bit. Arrange those dry Cheerios into a smiley face, and throw a paper parasol in that flat ginger ale.
