Just a quick post today, as three quarters of my household is down and out with a Spring cold. Is it just me, or does it seem like many folks are suffering during this Spring cold season?
This year, the households of my friends and family seem to be getting hit with Spring’s colds almost as often as the rainclouds pass by. In the interest of keeping our families healthy, I thought I would share a few of my favorite resources for cold and flu season and then open up the comments and invite you to share, too.
At our house, it seems like we pretty much follow the rest, chicken soup, and vitamin C approach to treating a Spring cold. We bring out the “Rainy Day Box” and occupy ourselves with things like puzzle books, Mad Libs, and Brain Quest cards in between naps, while we rest on the sofa.
I stress the importance of hand washing and do a bit of extra cleaning, hoping to disinfect our household of germs so that we can get better faster.
Usually, waiting it out is the name of the game, but as a mother I like to feel like I’m taking a proactive stance against illness, too.
Here are a few of my favorite resources for cold and flu season:
