A couple weeks ago my whole house was full of this dreaded word that no one like to talk about… dare I say it? The sickies!! That’s right, the sickies. There is nothing that I don’t like more floating around my house than sickness. No one likes to be sick and it just breaks my mama heart to see my little babies that way. I remember last year we were hit with the flu hard. It was one kid after the other. Emily ended up having the flu right along with a double ear infection and Brody, two weeks later, had the flu and one ear infection. Talk about mama guilt! I felt so so bad during that time and on top of trying to take care of two little sick toddlers who needed me at all times, I was sick and Scott was too! Once everyone was healthy again we were freaking rejoicing!
This year I am determined to do everything I can to avoid the flu for our little fam bam. No more sick days! I didn’t know until recently that medicine actually expires. I know, I know, like how did I, as a 32 year old mother of two, not know that medicine has an expiration date?! Get with the program, right? It’s true though. I remember seeing something that had expired by like-7 years and was all like, what the heck!?
Something I decided to do this year was to organize and clean out our medicine cabinet each year. That way we can be prepared for whatever comes our way without having to rely on someone to run out and get what we need once we’re feeling cruddy. Fingers crossed that we can prevent the flu and the sickies that come along with our Fall and Winter weather this year by being prepared out the wazoo!
The first thing I did was pull everything out and add these super cool organizing trays I found in our spare room. I love reusing things I already have and also…who doesn’t want an organized and pretty medicine cabinet? The compulsive organizer who lives deep down inside me and hasn’t seen the light of day in 4 years since having kids is loving this right now!
Find all the expired products and TOSS THEM. This is a no-brainer and I was shocked at how many we had! Separate medicine by age! This is a big one for me because beforehand everything was all over and I (or rather my husband) couldn’t find anything without making a big old mess and dragging every single thing out of the cabinet. I found this super cute little chalkboard that I attached to the inside of the door to be able to keep track of daily doses. Let’s be real and mama forgets stuff sometimes!
