REAL mom Wednesday

Standard

You know you are a REAL mom when…

*You like that your kids are fighting over who gets to sit on your lap (and with a baby in your belly, your lap only has room for one).

*You spend what should have been a relaxing Friday night watching a movie and eating popcorn with your son in a bathroom full of steam.

*Your kids and husband are sick with a cold and you wonder if there is a way to just have Vicks Vapo Rub sent through the vents because it would make like a lot easier.

Everyone in our house has had Vicks slathered on some part of their bodies.  We even had our plug-in Vicks plugged into the hallway to get to both of the kids’ rooms to try and open up airways better for sleep.  We don’t do humidifiers (have you ever looked at what is growing in those things?).  You can’t give little kids ANYTHING under the sun for colds it seems like.  So, Vicks it is.  Lots of Vicks.  Menthol rocks!

  1. Rubbing Vicks on the bottom of feet and then putting socks on right before bed and to sleep in has always worked really well too. (if u can get the little ones to keep their socks on)

  2. It’s so hard when the kids are sick!! Google honey and cinnamon- supposedly it’s a natural remedy for colds. Hang in there! I have a lot of admiration and respect for all the work you do that probably goes unrecognized.
