When Germs Srike

There is nothing worse than when your little one is sick. Poor Emma is sick, I mean fever, cough, the works! She cries every time she has to take her medicine and it completely breaks my heart!

Look at that little face! I just want her to feel better!

When we get sick at our house we have a go to system to get us back on track.

We grab our comfy Vera Bradley blankets. As you can see Emma has loved curling herself right up in them since she was little (okay, littler).

Even Lilly and Mickey (yes, Mickey as in our dog) love these blankets.

They are the softest things I have ever felt, think wrapping yourself up in a blanket that feels like a soft teddy bear! Yup, they are that good! I even keep one in our car to keep the girls warm when the weather is chilly!

Next, I grab my diffuser and diffuse some of my Young Living Thieves essential oil. It smells wonderful and helps fight off germs. When we are congested, like we are now, I diffuse the Young Living R.C. essential oil. It works like Vicks to make breathing a bit easier. In fact, my husband now requests this when he is feeling stuffy.  If you want to kick your diffuser into over drive, you can even mix the two oils.

When it’s time to eat, I make up a special tray to bring her food. Now if only I could get her to eat the food!

Plus, we spend a lot of time cuddling which seems to help her out a little bit!

What do you do when your little one is feeling under the weather?
