How To Cope When You Have Sick Kids

It’s inevitable. It is a part of life. At one time or another, you will have sick kids. You will have sick kids and it will be miserable. For them AND for you.
How to cope when you have sick kids

Sick Kids are nothing like the commercials you see. Cute little baby not feeling well, snuggling with mommy, smiling, as she wipes that cute little red nose. NO. Have you ever tried to wipe a babies nose? There is nothing cute about it. Let’s start with the fact that there will be absolutely no smiling on the kids part. It will be bloody murder screaming as if you are trying to steal their soul through that boogery little nose.

Another thing. Have you ever seen a kid with a cute little runny nose? Every time my kids have a runny nose I end up gagging and covered in copious amounts of nasty ass snot. Those little noses turn into fountains of mucus then dry up and dried boogies cover their nostrils and face. Then their noses start to run again as you finally chipped the dry boogers off with a hammer and chisel.

A runny nose is just square one, depending on what kind of ‘sick’ your kid is. We also have to deal with diarrhea, vomit, coughing, sneezing, fever, and crank ass kids.

So how do we deal with these sick kids? How do we cope and keep our sanity?

These are my tricks on how to deal with sick kids.

  1. 1. Be Prepared

When the first sign that the sickness is coming run to the store and stock up on your sick kids kit. (Keep reading I’ll show you what’s in my kit below.

2.Cancel All Plans

At first, it may not seem so bad. Don’t let that sweet kid fool you. The last thing you want is little Jimmy puking all over you and the coffee shop while you are on your mom’s club social trip. Oh, and spreading germs are bad and all.

3. Accept Help

If Grandma offers to come by for a few minutes tell her HELL YES. You are going to want a chance to wash off the gallons of snot and poo that you are covered in.

4.Be Patient

Remember, they are sick. They don’t understand. Try very hard not to lose your shit. You’ll feel very guilty losing it on your poor sweet sick two-year-old.

5.Everything Else Can Wait

You will want to do the dishes, catch up on laundry, or start dinner. If your babies need your constant attention or simply just want to snuggle then do it. Give them all of your love and attention. Nothing else is important. Rock that sick baby to sleep then binge watch Netflix, mommy snuggles are must.

Sick Kids Kit

Having sick kids you will definitely want to have the necessary tools available asap. It will make for a much smoother ride for everyone involved. Here are my must have items for sick kids.
 

Don’t forget your favorite essential oils, lots of coffee (for Mama), Water and favorite fluids (for kids), and some good movies!

If you have a sick kid then pour yourself lots of coffee and keep a bottle of wine ready at all times. There will be little sleep on your part (Yes, it’s okay to stay up all night watching your baby sleep) and you will feel as if you have nothing life. But you will have something left because you are mom and moms are superheroes.

What are your tips and tricks for taking care of those sick babies?

How To Give Mom The Perfect Mother’s Day

What Mom Really Wants For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day. The day that comes around once a year where everyone is obligated to tell Mom how much they love her.

Now, I’m going to be honest, I love Mother’s Day. I love a day that is supposed to celebrate me, a mom. To me, it’s not really about the gifts. (Okay, I won’t lie, I love receiving gifts.) It’s more about the fact that everyone has to try to be nice to me all day long!

I’m going to give you a list of ideas that you can’t fit in a little bag.

  1. Clean The House. I mean REALLY clean the house. Last Mother’s Day, my husband had our carpets professionally cleaned. I’ve never been more turned on. Seriously though, have you ever listened to your wife/mom complain about how she is CONSTANTLY cleaning?

Here’s how you execute this.

Wake up before she does and clean the house. If you are planning on making her breakfast, that’s awesome. I love when other people cook for me. BUT I do not like the mess other people make while cooking. I can’t relax while eating my Mother’s Day breakfast while sitting at the table staring at the mountain of dishes in the sink.
Unsure what to get mom for Mother’s Day? How about an adorable pair of shoes!

2. Plan The Day. This is SO important. Don’t make Mom wake up on her special day and then say so, what do you want to do today? Nothing says, I put no thought into this day like asking Mom, on the day of, what she wants to do.

It’s pretty simple actually.

You should know mom better than anyone, and chances are if she’s anything like me she’s dropped some hints about what she wants to do on her special day. So, plan it for her. Does she want to get a pedicure in peace? Call and schedule it for her! Tell her that you have the kids and she has an appointment to go relax. Does she want to do something as a family? Go to brunch? Hike? PLAN IT. Plan a picnic, get ready before the big day! Don’t make her do any of the work.

3. Let Her Use The Bathroom Alone. Every single time. You read that right, one full day of letting mommy pee, poop, and shower all alone. By alone, I don’t mean have the kids standing outside of the door screaming at her. I’m talking quiet, alone, non-rushed, bathroom time. Let her do what dad gets to do every day!

Do you know how often, as a mom, I get to use the bathroom by myself?

Maybe, and I mean maybe once a day. Trust me when I say it’s not easy to poop when you have two kids running around the bathroom, yelling at you, ripping the towels out of the closet. Or when you can hear them screaming for mommy even though you left them with daddy. It’s important to remember to not make mommy feel bad for wanting to wash her hair alone.

4. Tend To The Children. If Mom is a stay at home mom then there is a good chance that all she does all day is wipe butts, kiss boo-boos, and obviously, take care of the kids.

Do this for her.

Baby pooped? Change that diaper immediately! Is the toddler screaming in the kitchen for a snack? Get up and get him one. Let Mama relax for one day, it may seem so simple but to her, it is a huge deal!

These simple steps will help Mama have the best day ever.

Of course, you can go above and beyond with simple steps like these. Do you know what would start my morning off just right? Have coffee made before I wake up. I’m getting all excited just thinking about that!

Remember Mother’s Day does not have to be expensive. I mean it can be, I don’t mind that either. Most of the time it’s the thought that counts! Make that special mom in your life feel special. Doesn’t she deserve it?

What do you like to do for Mother’s Day? Sit around and chill with the family? Have a day to yourself at the spa? Let me know in the comments!

What NOT To Do When You Are Pregnant

The Day I Shat Myself While Pregnant

I was about 25 weeks pregnant when one of the most embarrassing things EVER happened to me.  I was on a road trip with my mom and my son who was one at the time. We were out of town to soak up some sun and visit family. After a few days, we finally decided to head back home. We stuck with tradition and ate at our favorite restaurant. My mom and I consider ourselves to be chicken wing connoisseurs. The spicier the wing, the better.  If it doesn’t make your throat bleed then we are not interested.

How to Clean Poop in 10 Easy Steps

*This post contains affiliate links which means I make a commission for purchases made through the following link*

In my life as a Mom of two I end up cleaning up a lot of poop. I’m talking A LOT OF POOP. Whether it be my two year old pooping in his room, or my 4 month old blowing out her diaper. It’s poop all day every day. I decided to share how to handle this situation, the way a perfect mom would.

Okay, or at least how I would.

Let’s say your two year old just pooped all over his toys and the carpet in his bedroom. Here is how to clean it up in 10 easy steps.

Step 1: Grab a wine glass, fill that wine glass, take a large drink.

Step 2: Grab a  ton of paper towels, every cleaner you can find, and a plastic bag.

Step 3: Take another very large drink of wine

Step 4: Using paper towels grab all solid poopie that you can and insert into plastic bag.
(You may use gloves if you have any)

Step 5: Grab all toys covered in poo that do not need to be saved and insert into plastic bag.
(For me this is all of the toys- none of them are worth saving)

Step 6: Tie plastic bag, and sneak out of the house like you are smuggling 122 lbs of cocaine across the Mexican border. Insert bag into outside dumpster.

I repeat DO NOT GET CAUGHT!

Step 7: Wash hands, gag, and pour more wine.

Step 8: Spray whatever cleaner you have and half ass attempt to scrub poopie out of the carpet. Cover with a towel to “soak” then spray Febreze to cover the stench.

Step 9: Call husband to clean the rest. Tell him you tried your best but you just need him. It’ll make him feel wanted and needed.
(Trust me)

Step 10: Finish that wine, you deserve it.

A few extra tips: Remove Children from the room where the pooping happened. You don’t want to walk in on the two year old drawing a poop mustache on the baby.

That, my friends, is how to clean poopie out of your child’s room in 10 easy steps.
