If you’ve been following along, you know that life for us has been a little busy and hectic lately. Between getting closer and closer to the closing date on our house, I’m in the process of starting a new job and in the midst of it all, we’ve all been feeling a little under the weather at some point or another. It started with me and then I passed it onto Alea and then Alea decided to share her sick germs with Cory, as well. It’s been a sick January—let me tell ya! After some missed preschool for Alea, me missing my last day of work at my previous job, and Cory staying home sick from work one day (that never happens), thankfully we’re all feeling better. But while we were laid up on the couch with a nasty GI bug, we’ve been watching quite a bit of Netflix and drinking an awful lot of gingerale and Gatorade.
Boy does plain old gingerale get old after a while, though, so I thought it would be fun to whip up something that would tickle our tastebuds a little more while we were on the upswing, but still needing fluids.
1. 1 small can of gingerale
2. 1 juice box
Combine the two in a fancy little mason jar with a pretty paper straw and you’ve got the recipe for a happier tummy and a happier kiddo!
It was such a relief when Alea drank a few of these. I knew she was getting some good juice in her tummy and the gingerale was calming to her stomach as well. There’s nothing that worries me more than a sick, dehydrated kiddo. That can go bad—fast!
While the sick bug was hanging out at our place, Alea watched lots of great movies and her favorite shows on Netflix. Her favorites were: The Magic School Bus, Leap Frog shows, Annie, and My Little Pony. Boy was it nice to have entertainment literally right at our fingertips. It’s so hard to keep a 4-year-old laying down and sitting still for that matter, in order for them to feel better, but having Netflix available was a huge relief!
