It may be cliché that my first blog tip will be on sanitizing; however, when you have just picked yourself off the floor after the kids stomach bug hits you, it is ever so top of mind! Your kids may not be like mine, they may be perfect angels who would never lick a lollipop after it fell on the ground, try to feed you already chewed food directly from their mouths, or better yet sneeze directly into your open mouth…but I doubt it. 😛
Unless someone invents a parenting sneeze guard, I have nothing to recommend for combating the last one… babies simply have that perfect timing and aim… I do recommend keeping some bleach based cleaning supplies on hand. Those have come in mighty handy over the last week in my household.
