7 Must-Have Essentials for Toddler Sick Days!



I feel like I am actually prepared for the winter flu and cold season and finally figured out a way to keep it to a minimum.

My daughter doesn’t get sick too often because she’s not in a daycare or preschool yet, but since her cousins are school age, they always seem to be sick, which in turn gets Arya sick about 70% of the time we come into contact.

She actually just caught the flu bug a few days ago from the cousins, so I’ve been dealing with trying to keep the sickness at bay. Luckily, I was already prepared since I stocked up on Kleenex essentials at Walmart.com.

The ordering process was simple, just head on over to Walmart, add the kleenex to your cart and select in-store pickup or 2-day shipping to home.

Amazing Essential Oil Roller Blend for The Winter Moody Blues

Winter blues is no joke. Most people develop mood disorders in late fall and winter months, which often leads to depression.

I’ve just started taking an interest in essential oils last year and I’m finally getting around to buying and using some in more recipes because I like a more holistic approach when it comes to health and well-being.

Because of the lack of sunlight (hello daylight “pointless” saving time..), the end of the year stress from Etsy, and my cat dying, I decided I should make an essential oil rollerball blend to get me out of my moody blues funk.

Life is Precious: Get Out & Make Memories


After the miserable week I’ve had, we needed to find something fun to do as a family this past weekend. So we planned an outing to the Portland, Oregon Zoo for the Zoo Lights that they put on every year during the holidays. It was neat, but the rain and cold made for unhappy kids. And, if you’re from the PNW area, then you know exactly what I am talking about. This is why we had to get hot cocoa to warm our bellies while there!

The holidays are a stressful time of year for just about everyone. Anytime someone comes over, I always want to make sure my house is looking presentable, but sometimes I don’t have enough time to run to the store to pick up the household essentials, so I save a little time by ordering from Walmart.com and selecting store pick up and/or ship to home. Now that the holidays are here… traffic is insane, lines are long, and I just want to avoid the chaos of it all!
