Do you have home remedies? I'm wondering what everyone else does when they have the sickies at their house. We have the sickies here this week, and it's so hard to watch the little ones be sick. They're just not themselves :( As a mom we just want to make them better FAST... When I was a kid when we would get really sick, like chicken pox or something, my grandma would always bring us a fresh new set of pjs. It is a memory that I really treasure. So, when we've had those instances here, I've done the same thing.
We do a lot of rest when we're sick, and often I'll set the dvd player up with movies, or find some on netflix. If it's the older boys, they pretty much get quarantined in their room :) We also will take some Thieves Oil and sometimes we'll swallow a couple of drops, and often we'll put it on the soles of everyone's feet before bed to fight off the germs.
Today, I've been simmering some homemade chicken noodle soup. There are so many good nutrients in chicken stock, I'm hoping it will be the thing to fix us up around here :) I even tried my hand at homemade noodles... We'll see how they taste LOL :)
So, I want to know, what do you do for your sickies? Leave me a comment and let's all help each other. With cold and flu season fast approaching, it's something we should all be thinking about :)
