If you follow me on Instagram, you know that Peanut has been sick with a pretty nasty head and chest cold. Well, as is common with young kids in the household, as are both of us.
Let me tell you that no matter how old I am, when I get sick the first thing that I want is my mommy. Followed closely by a hot cup of tea, preferably made by my mommy. Unfortunately for me, my parents don’t live nearby so I have to settle for taking care of myself and my own kid.
Having a sick kid is pretty horrible – she cries a lot and we can’t seem to figure out how to help her. Her cough takes her breath away and she eye-balls me as if asking for my help. But baby Tylenol? That stuff is incredible. Within 20 minutes of a small dose, Peanut is back to her playful self, dragging her blanket or bear around the house, chasing the dog.
Being sick while taking care of a sick toddler is almost as bad – sure I know how to help myself, but there is no rest while you’re either calming a crying baby or chasing one around. And adult cold medicine? Well, that stuff doesn’t even compare! Honestly, why can’t they just make adult cold medicine work like the baby stuff?
So here’s to a quick recovery in the King household and to discovering how to make adult cold medicine as effective as Baby Tylenol.
