The holidays are over and everyone is getting back in a routine. Parents are heading back to work, kids are heading back to school, and just about the time that everyone gets back in the groove it happens.
Someone gets sick.
I have never been big on New Year’s Resolutions, but this year my goal for myself is to be more organized…no matter what live throws at me. Part of being organized is being prepared for the unexpected. Here are some tips on how to be prepared when sick gets real.
How to Stay Organized When Sick Gets Real
Get a Pen & Paper
When one person get sick, usually we all start dropping like flies. It is hard to remember when someone took medicine, what there temperature was, etc. Keep a pen & paper handy to write down all of these things to help you keep track so if the doctor asks, or you need to know when it is safe to give more medicine you are prepared.
Stock that Pantry
Before anyone is sick stock your pantry with staples. Make sure you have things like soup, crackers, ginger ale, etc on hand so you don’t need to make a last minute run to the store.
Have the Right Tools
Make sure you have a thermometer, humidifier, ice packs, tissues and anything else you might need ready to go. I try to keep them all together in the cabinet so when sickness strikes we are ready.
Stock the Medicine Cabinet
Kids get sick no matter how much you do to prevent it. When sick gets real, –there are solutions to help tackle even the ickiest of symptoms, like Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and/or Children’s Dimetapp®.
