Brandon and Emma both have a cold and cough, so we're dealing with various amounts of snotty noses and hacking coughs. It's pretty nasty outside so I'm very happy to stay inside today and cuddle my babies and have some indoor activities.
MMMMM, I'm thinking Hot Chocolate time!!
I also finally tried a home remedy I've been wanting to try for a long time.
I had read that if you rub Vicks Vapor Rub on the bottom of your feet and throw some socks on, it will suppress coughing.
I thought 'yeah, right'. It's seems too simple to be true. So last night when Brandon woke up in the night with an awful, uncontrollable cough I headed to the medicine cabinet and broke open the small bottle of goodness.
IT WORKS!!! Crazy but true, it really does work. I have no idea why or how but I just know it worked and I'm going to the store to stock up! It was amazing, after about 5 minutes Brandon was peacefully sleeping with no coughing.
They are now called the magic socks and they are awesome!
The label says not for use in children 2 and under so I have not tried it with Emma. I may ask the Doctor about it though.
Now... Does anyone have the home remedy for chunky thighs????
