We have come so far.
A week ago there were there were plans, there was hope, there was Christmas right around the corner. Little did we know there was also a bug waiting to get all of us sick. We spent some of last week avoiding getting sick, a few days with a fever being terribly sick, and the rest of the days climbing our way out with congestion and a cold. Of course the baby has had it the worst. There is nothing like have a sick child and we are still learning the ropes as parents of dealing with and taming a high fever.
It really feels as if we’ve traveled to a different country and are just settling back in to being home. Being sick just feels like that I guess.
One of our home remedies that we have been making regularly is the drink is pictured above : a honey lemon soother. It’s just hot water with two slices of lemon and a spoonful of honey stirred in to it, but it does great things to sooth sore throats. We have some other home remedies we’ve tried out (coconut oil + garlic anyone) but this one is fully tested! (of course if you have any to recommend to me I’d love to hear).
I hope you shared more than germs this holiday and are feeling better if you were in the same boat as us!
