Brrr. It’s getting cold outside. I hope you don’t get sick. More importantly, I hope your kids don’t get sick.
But if someone in your family does get sick, it’s nice to have a few things on hand to soothe the stress of sick days. A little foresight and some planning ahead can spare you the inconvenience (and agony) of sick days.
Here are 10 things to have on hand in case you or your kids get sick, after the jump.
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.
