By Kacy Faulconer |

Brrr. It’s getting cold outside. I hope you don’t get sick. More importantly, I hope your kids don’t get sick.

Here are 10 things to have on hand in case you or your kids get sick, after the jump.

Stocking Up For Sick Days

7-Up for Stomaches

Once my son Ben swallowed a penny, which got suck in his diaphragm. A wise ER doctor gave him a can of 7-Up and told him to jump up and down. This dislodged the penny and I've got the X-rays to prove it. Sipping Sprite or 7-Up can help upset stomachs and you just can't beat the psychological effect on a kid who doesn't get soda very often. Keep a few cans in the back of the fridge for a sick day.
