My Top 5 # Vicks Tricks to help your kid feel better

Vicks tricks

This post is an entry for the #VicksTricks Campaign.

Is it me or does it feel like cold and flu season just doesn’t end. It seems that once you have gotten rid of one nasty bug a new one makes it’s appearance. Or when one child get’s better the other becomes sick. And all hell breaks loose when they are all ill at once.

If you have been reading my blog you may remember at the beginning of it’s journey I wrote a post about being a nurse to three children. Since then it has been a constant battle with the bugs, LM taking some of the biggest hits. From September 2016 he has had 2 chest infections, the start of pnemonia and endless colds and coughs. Let’s not forget when the whole house got hit with the sickness bug. BG2 hasn’t faired much better with her chest infections either. And most recently the kids were hit with slapped cheek.

As a mum I know all too well of the stress that having a poorly child can bring. But fear not the more sickness bugs we face the more tools we gain to deal with them.

My top five tips for keeping the kids comfy during cold & flu season

  1. Duvets on the sofa. I don’t know about you but when I was a child being stuck in bed all day when you were sick was such a drag. Sofas are just as comfy as beds when you are sick and mean your child doesn’t get left out. The duvet and pillow gets pulled off the bed, dragged down the stairs and piled onto the sofa. You should be able to make out your childs head somewhere inbetween the cosy-ness.
  2. Disney Movies! A sick day is not complete in our house hold without a pile of Disney movies to make our way through. No ordinary movie will do, it has to be Disney!
  3. Snuggle time with Mummy. I will take every chance I can get to snuggle with the kids, even at the cost of getting sick myself. Having them snuggled up under your arm, drifting off to sleep while you stroke their hair beats cleaning the house any day. I always remember my own mum doing this when I was sick.
  4. Let them eat Ice cream. Yes Ice cream! Any food is better than no food even if it is full of crap. When your child is suffering from a sora throat and doesn’t want anything to eat, I am sure they will be tempted with Ice-cream. Not only will it sooth the throat on the way down, they will also feel like they are being really naughty and can get away with it.
  5. Kick Daddy to the Curb! Or Sofa! Kids love sleeping in their parents bed and not only will feel more comforted next to you, it also means you may actually get some sleep because you won’t be worrying about them from the next room.

vicks tricks

Vicks is in my house

When I think of Vicks I instantly think of Vicks VapoRub. Doesn’t everybody have a pot in their medicine cabinet. My mum always used to say that if you had a cough you are supposed to put vicks vaporub on the soles of your feet and then put a pair of socks on. Anybody else’s mum swear by this? Well I now do this with my children.

But Vicks doesn’t stop there. Products also include Vicks first defence nasal spray and Vicks Vapoease patch for children.

Vicks Research

According to Vicks research on British Parents common at home remedies:

  • Over half (52%) of parents said that rest was the most important thing for making children feel better.
  • Followed by ‘medicine’, which 40% of parents rely on.
  • More than a third of parents (36%) believe in TLC for a cure

And how do these parents keep their poorly children entertained:

  • Three out of four (75%) British parents put on the TV or DVD
    Over a quarter (27%) read to their children
  • 1 in 10 parents get really creative telling jokes (8%) or doing magic tricks (2%)

 

Vicks have launched a series of #VicksTricks magic videos that are simple for you to recreate at home to keep your child smiling while they are poorly.

Parents Evening

Parents evening

Last week we had parents evening for BG1. It’s that time of year again where we sit in front of our child’s teacher for all of 10minutes to see how well they have settled and are doing in school. Even though the start of the school year was only four weeks ago.

I really don’t like going to parents evening, I hate having to speak to someone about my child when they have only known them for four weeks.

It was going to be the first parents evening that was at a reasonable time that hubby could come along too, which was great because I hate going to these things alone. But in typical fashion the family was hit with a bunch of sickness bugs and he didn’t feel up to going. Nanny to the rescue. My mum happily took his place and came with me to parents evening.

While talking with the teacher she didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know. However I actually liked this teacher. The past few years BG1 has had a lot of substitute teachers and I felt they just didn’t have a clue who they were talking about. This is probably why I dislike parents evening so much.

Her new teacher was young and polite and new a lot of BG1’s strengths and weaknesses. She was impressed with her reading and writing. And commented on how neat her writing has become. We are very proud of our little girl and her reading, she wants to be like Roald Dahl when she grows up. She still struggles with math which we didn’t expect to change over night but she has made some improvement.

I asked the question about BG1 being seen about her learning difficulties as we were told during her last school year that this was the process being taken. Both her previous teacher and I felt she has some kind of learning difficulty possibly Dyspraxia. However this was the first time her new teacher had heard of any of this.

It really makes me wander if there is any communication within the school or any action at all for that matter. We were told we would be sent forms ect and none of this happened. I have left it in the new teachers hands and hopefully we will get further this time.

All in all I still hate parents evenings, they make me feel like I am back at school myself. LM’s is the week after half term I am not looking forward to it.

Happy 100th Birthday Roald Dahl

roald dahl

So today is September 13th 2016 and it just so happens to be one of the most loved and iconic children’s author’s 100th birthday. I think it is safe to say that all of us both old and young have come across Roald Dahl’s stories in some form. Whether it be sitting in the library at school being read to by a teacher, or mum/dad reading a bedtime story or through the wonderful recreations of his stories in films.

There are so many much loved characters that have been created by Roald Dahl that have become not only some of my favourites but also my children’s. Characters such as Matilda, Charlie and the chocolate factory, James and the giant peach and the BFG.

Roald Dahl has also inspired my daughter to become an author when she is older. “I want to be just like him mummy” she often tells me.

At our kids school today they are celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday with a tea party and fancy dress. The children get to dress up as a story character or Roald Dahl’s favourite colour yellow.

As little man is unwell he won’t be going to school today. But our big girl will be, she is dressed as Veruca Salt from Charlie and the chocolate factory. I searched through the old faithful site of pinterest for DIY Roald Dahl characters and this one popped up, great I thought. I knew she had a red dress and her school shoes, our local poundland did giant lollies and I had a gold sparkly gift bag I could make a golden ticket from.

50 things I want my daughters to know

 

50 things

Dear Daughters,

You both are growing so fast, I wish I could just stop the clock and breath you in at this second just for a bit longer. You are currently 7 and 1, where is that time going.

There is so much I  want need to teach you, need you to know. You are my beautiful daughters, you surprise me every day with your manners, and knowledge that you have learnt so quickly in such few years.

BG1 in your 7 years you have learnt to share your toys with your brother. You have learnt to be a brilliant big sister that and little brother and sister would be proud to have. You have overcome your shyness and impressed and shocked us all. You have learnt walk, run and now even ride a bike. You haven’t always found learning easy but you do it anyway. You are a true angel and a precious daughter.

BG2 you have come so far this first year. You are stronger than all of us and in such a short time have overcome prematurity, medical procedures, illness and more. You are our little fighter who continues to look at us for guidance. You have learnt to crawl, to eat, to stand, to wave and to clap.

There is so much for you both to learn in this world. So many life decisions to make. There are things I want to teach you, so many things I want you to learn. I am sharing with you 50 things I want you to know as you grow. Even now writing this there are more things I can think of that I want you to know, but I will stick with 50 for now.

50 things I want you to know

 

  • Don’t be scared to ask questions. No matter how small or silly you think that question is always speak up and ask. I will help answer it if I can. And if I can’t, I will find someone who can.

 

  • There will always be mean girls – you shouldn’t be one of them. It will get you know where being mean, I am raising polite, nice girls not mean ones.

 

  • Don’t gossip – unless it’s with me. It does no good gossiping, it can really bite you in butt, but I won’t tell if you want to vent to me.

 

  • A good cry can be a good thing. Sometimes you just need a good cry, it may be because you are sad or maybe happy. But sometimes it is for no reason at all, one day you will understand this. Let it out, it can make you feel better.

 

  • You will always be my baby. This will never change, no matter how old you get I will always think of you as my baby. Get used to it.

daughters

 

  • Learn to change a tyre. This will at some point in your life be very valuable. I didn’t learn this skill and ended up stuck.

 

  • Sing loud and proud especially in the car and shower. Don’t be put off by what others think, if you want to sing belt your heart out. Singing is good for the soul.

 

  • Always believe in fairies  – I don’t want Tinkerbells death on my hands. You know mummy is a little strange and in coocoo  land, this is one of my little weird and wonderful little beliefs that fairies do exist. Don’t ruin it for me, instead join me in fairy land.

 

  • Being normal is boring. Why would you want to be normal. Stand out from the crowd and be proud to be different. I am not normal and I turned out okay.

 

  •  It’s okay to be weird, silly and different. Embrace your weirdness and quirks that make you – you. That’s what I love about you.

daughters

 

  • You will always remember your first, wait for someone special. It doesn’t have to be the person you marry, but wait for someone who treats you the way you deserve and makes you laugh. I waited for your daddy to come along.

 

  • Having a baby hurts like nothing you have ever experienced – but a baby at the end makes it more than worth it. But don’t be in a rush to experience it, enjoy life first.

 

  • Always wear a clean pair of underwear. Or carry a spare pair with you, they will come in handy.

 

  • You are beautiful – Don’t let anyone tell you differently. There can be some mean people in the world, but no matter what you are beautiful. Don’t hide away from the world, show the world your beauty.

 

  • You can trust me with anything – mummies usually give great advice, they can also keep secrets. Always come to me no matter what I am here to listen.

daughters

 

  • It’s okay to make mistakes. Nobody is perfect, I am not perfect. Mistakes will be made and you will learn from them that’s just the way of life. Don’t let the fear of making a mistake hold you back.

 

  • Don’t do something bad because it’s cool and ‘everyone else is doing it’ – be the good girl. You don’t get far by being the bad girl. Stay good and prosper.

 

  • Don’t do drugs, they’re disgusting and can be dangerous – I never did them I expect you to do the same.

 

  • If someone doesn’t like you – walk away they are not worth it – change for nobody but yourself.

 

  • Always be honest. Lies always come out eventually and someone will always get hurt because of them.

 

daughter

 

  • Smile. You have a beautiful smile that light up your eyes. Do it often, it will make somebodies day.

 

  • Bake. Everybody should learn this skill, bake anything and everything. Bake often.

 

  • Don’t let a man change you. If he wants you to change, he aint worth it. Change for yourself and no one else.

 

  • You only need one true friend.

 

  • Always carry a spare pair of tights on a night out. You are bound to get a ladder at some point.

daughter

 

  • And a pair of ballet pumps. You will be glad of the change in footwear. You may think your brand new 5inch heels are a great idea, but when you are out in them for a couple hours you will realise the are not that great.

 

  • Believe in magic. Magic is everywhere, even when you don’t realise it. I’m not talking about the stuff magicians do to create illusions.

 

  • Walk with your head up and shoulders back. Not only does it make you taller, but also makes you feel more confident.

 

  • Never bite your finger nails. It took me years to grow nails that didn’t break after years of biting them. You have lovely nails. A beautiful set of polished nails can finish off any outfit.

 

  • Laugh – have fun with your friends. Every body needs a little laughter in their life, have fun and enjoy your free time with friends.

sisters

 

  • Smoking is not cool. Don’t start it, it’s disgusting and dirty. I have no problem in telling this to your daddy’s face too.

 

  • Always look people in the eye when talking to them. It shows confidence, and understanding. You can go further if you look them in the eye.

 

  • Mummy’s cooking is always the best. No you will not find anyone who will come close to my cooking. You may come close to my culinary skills but they will not top mine!

 

  • I am always listening. I hear and see everything, even if you don’t think I am, I will always hear you.

 

  • Chocolate isn’t the answer – but it sure helps.

sisters

 

  • Never skip breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day – remember it.

 

  • You can do anything a man can, and probably better too. That includes play football!

 

  • Dance whenever you feel like it. It doesn’t matter where you are or who you are with, if you want to dance, dance. Even if you aren’t good at it. Even if it’s in the frozen aisle at Asda.

 

  • Dress for comfort, not to impress. Let your personality do the talking.

daughters

 

  • Read. You can learn a lot from reading, so do it often.

 

  • Follow your dreams – You can be Roald Dahl if you want to be. I will always help you where I can.

 

  • It’s okay to love pink and toy cars a the same time. Cars aren’t just for boys.

 

  • Football is not just or boys. You can play if you want to.

 

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I will be there to help you and so will so many others, if you don’t ask we can’t read your mind.

 

 

  • A road trip isn’t a road trip if you don’t get lost.

 

  • Fall in love with someone who makes you laugh – so much your stomach and cheeks hurt.

 

  • I am always available for a hug. I give great hugs and welcome them at every opportunity.

 

  • Start saving money as early as possible.

 

  • Don’t be in a rush to grow up. There is plenty of time to grow up, stay young as long as possible.

 

  • I love you. Forever and always

 Your mummy xXx

Summer Holidays – A trip to the beach

summer holidays - a day trip to the beach

The unexpected beach trip

Sometimes the moments we enjoy the most are the ones that aren’t planned. The unexpected days that take you by surprise. That’s what happened to us this week.

It’s the summer holidays, we make a bucket list of all the activities we want to do during the six week holiday. This summer the hubby is very busy at work so we weren’t expecting him to have any time off. However, due to work not being finished and updated in time he unexpectedly got Friday off.

This meant he could join in with a day out from our bucket list.

We narrowed the choice down to soft play, bowling or beach and arcades. We made the choice to take a trip to the beach. The weather hadn’t been great for a couple of days – pretty much non stop rain – so the beach should be quiet. Today it had rained early morning but soon dried up. It was still fairly cloudy but warm.

Cinema days

CINEMA

Today was our first trip out of the summer. I was going to say it is also the first item knocked off our summer bucket list however, we had a BBQ Saturday.

The started like most normal days for us, we were in no rush. My mum came to pick BG2 up as she wasn’t coming with us.

Today would be the first time for me taking both the kids on the bus on my own. Usually it is the hubby is with us.

I checked I had everything I needed in my handbag. Don’t you just love handbags, the really big kind – the mummy bag.

We made our way out of the house and into town to the bus station. The kids were excited, they skipped ran and joked down the street. Continue reading

Keeping kids cool during the summer!

summer cool

The hot weather has arrived, and hopefully here to stay for a while. It is so important to help babies and children to stay cool during the summer holidays.

Babies under six months can’t regulate their body temperature like older children and adults can. It’s our jobs as parents to help keep them cool and not get over heated. Older kids can often get irritated and restless during the hot weather. Keeping them cool can lessen the chances of a heat induced tantrum. Continue reading

Reading With Your Children

Reading

Reading with your child can be a really important part of their childhood. It helps them in so many ways. Learning words, letters, speech. Your doing your part to prepare them for school, and to have a love for books and reading. A love of reading has so many benefits. Most things we learn come from what we have read.

Your child starts learning from a very young age – younger than school age. Reading as a part of your child’s routine from a very young age can aid in their development.

Reading a story isn’t just about learning for children. It is a great opportunity to bond with your child. It can help aid in calming your child if they are somewhat restless.

School run – from the eyes of kids #4

eyes of kids

 

Today’s photos were taken on the school run. One picture from each child. I think maybe they are trying the no faces style of photography too.

The school run at times can be rushed and busy. This particular morning was non school uniform day, we were on time, if not a bit early. The perfect time to leave five minutes before hand and take some extra pictures.

From the mouths of kids 2

From the mouths of Kids

From the mouths of kids 2

As my little man goes to nursery two and a half days a week it is just me and the baby for the first half of the week. She is 10months old and the closest thing I can get of a conversation from her is a screaming match. We have all been there were we feel the need to have an adult conversation. The baby just screams and grunts at me until she has her remote and then that gets the brunt of the screaming.

I love when Little man is home from nursery the other two and a half days of the week. He is my little sidekick and goes with me everywhere, I can finally have some kind of conversation, even if it isn’t grown up.

Thank Gosh it’s Friday

affles

Friday has come around once again. I’m sure these weeks seem to be passing by quicker as each week ends. It will soon be Christmas once again. Not that I’ll complain about that, Christmas is my favourite time of year. But it does mean that the kids are that much older, and even worst I’m that much older. However, no matter how old I get, I love the weekends and I love Fridays.

I love Friday’s not only because it is pizza night (my favourite food in the universe – not including chocolate of course) meaning there are no huge piles of dishes at the end of the evening, no spending an hour and a half cooking tea and no ‘you finish that plate of vegetables or you’re not having pudding’. But it also means the hubby is off for the weekend and so are the kids. Out time to spend together. Continue reading
