When sick gets real, Children’s Advil® gets The Boy back to school faster

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.

I’m not sure why this happens, but when my kids’ allergies start up for the season, they get fevers to go along with them. It happens almost every year. I blame it on the fact that here in New York, we go from snow falling one day, to 60 degrees the following day. The flowers don’t give them time to adjust, they just open up and the pollen can’t be fended off. In my wildest dreams, I never thought I’d be someone who had to stockpile Children’s Advil® in multiple flavors. Heaven forbid both kids liked the same flavor. That’d be too easy!

Little Miss recovers rather fast. However, when the fever hits, Children’s Advil® gets The Boy back to school faster. He doesn’t drink fluids, like his big sister does. He refuses to take his allergy meds, like Little Miss does. What’s that mean? We go through a lot more Children’s Advil® with my little beast, than we do with my Little Miss. It’s all good, though. When sick gets real, Target is close by, and has both their favorite flavors on their shelves!

Miserable is one word that describes The Boy when he’s not feeling well. He looks miserable, and just makes me want to cringe when I look at his sad face. If he was doing the things I told him to do, so he’d get better, I’d be more sympathetic to his little sad face. However, when sick gets real, I know what goes on in this house, and he gets no sympathy. Don’t want to drink water? Not going to eat something? Insist on not putting slippers on your feet, instead of walking around the house in bare feet? Mama Sunflower isn’t going to make any extra effort for you, kid. She will send Mr. Sunflower up to Target to pick up a few products from the Pfizer Pediatric Platform. A little something for the fever, plus a little Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack. It helps him sleep at night, instead of him staying up all night coughing his lungs up and across his bedroom. YUCK!

Our home is always stocked with Children’s Advil®. We’ve got the dye free kind, along with the Grape and Bubble Gum flavors. When we run low, we stock up on all our Pfizer Pediatric Platform meds at Target. We’re good with our Target shopping. We go in, get what we need, and get the heck out. I’m not one that gets sucked into the Target $200 shopping trip, and walk out without what I go in there for!

Even though the kids don’t get sick often, we’re of the mindset to always be prepared. I’ve never been a girl scout, the husband never a boy scout, but hey, it doesn’t take being a scout to understand it’s good to be prepared! When in doubt, just head for the Pfizer products at Target, and you’ll be set up for the season of illnesses. Because in our house #SickJustGotReal and we’re fighting back, with all our might!
