Has the cold/flu bug hit your house yet? 
Have you stocked your pantry with the new Pedialyte Singles? Follow #PedialyteSingles on Twitter and Facebook to read the latest tips.  The biggest bonus is that the new singles come in a “juice box” shape so if your kids are anything like mine, they will drink it thinking it’s only juice. For a long time it was a challenge with my little ones because they would associate the big bottle with medicine.

Want another bonus? It now comes in clear liquids!!! They have apple, cherry and fruit flavors.

If you have small children in your home, you know that dehydration is the biggest “bully” for them during this time.  The body fluids that the children loose during their illnesses are vital, and as my children’s Doctors have recommended since they were living in the hospital as preemies; Pedialyte has always been what we turn too to prevent this bully from beating our kids.

I had an opportunity to have a “make & take” party at my house.  A few of my friends got together, we cooked easy and hearty meals that we can freeze for those dreaded days.  You know what days I’m talking about, when the kids are sick and you are worn out from being nurse and mommy.  Even worst, for the days when the mommies are sick and need that extra help.  We had a blast, we hung cheap ativan no prescription out, cooked, laughed and now we have the piece of mind that we have a back up plan in the freezer for “those days”.  I even made the kids some “get well” baskets.  Look at the fun meals we did…
