It seems like that ever since 2017 started, someone in my family has been sick. You name it, we’ve had it in our household. The stomach bug, fevers, coughs, runny nose…even hives! I’m so over it but at least I’m a pro now at what to do when the kids are sick. I now keep my medicine cabinet stocked but when I’m running low because sick just got real, I head to Target to pick up Pfizer Pediatric Products. It’s the perfect place to go when you need to pick up items for a sick day survival kit.

This past week was pretty rough in our household. It started with Evie throwing up a few times and then getting a fever and cough. Then my son came home from school saying that his head hurt. He put himself to bed and spent the next few days fighting a fever and sleeping in bed. There are so many nasty viruses going around that are bringing symptoms like fevers, cough, runny nose, headache and body aches. Luckily, I was able to give my son Children’s Advil® which broke the fever right away (that explains the missing pillowcase in the picture above – he totally sweat through it!). During the day, Children’s Robitussin® DM Day/Night Pack (Children’s Robitussin® Cough & Chest Congestion helped give him some relief from his cough!

When it comes time to cheering up your kids and getting them laughing, it’s smart to pick up some movies to get a smile on their face. I have some of our favorite 20th Century Fox movies on hand for when that sick day comes. Our favorites include:
Ice Age Collision Course: Your favorite ICE AGE heroes are back and cooler than ever in this all-new animated adventure that’s mammoth-sized fun for the whole family! Now the entire herd—including Buck, Manny, Ellie, Sid and Diego—must work together on a hilarious journey filled with nonstop action and colorful new characters, in order to survive the global Scrat-tastrophe!
The Peanuts Movie: Dream big and laugh along with good ol’ Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang as you’ve never seen them before — in a brand-new feature film from the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of Ice Age. Join everyone’s favorite eternal optimist, Charlie Brown, as he embarks on a heroic quest, while his beagle pal Snoopy takes to the skies to pursue his archnemesis, the Red Baron. It’s a hilarious and heartwarming adventure that proves every underdog has his day!
The Sandlot: Tom Guiry plays Scotty Smalls, the shy new kid on the block who wants to join the rowdy pickup baseball team that plays every day in the neighborhood sandlot. The summer passes blissfully as Scotty learns to play ball under the wing of Benny Rodriguez (Mike Vitar), the oldest and best player, as well as Ham, Squints, Repeat and the rest of the kid-eccentrics. The skies darken, however, when Benny literally knocks the stuffing out of the team’s only baseball, a sign of impending doom, or worse, bad luck. Wanting to set things right, Scotty returns home and “borrows” his stepfather’s ball, which he promptly uses to hit his first home run, knocking the ball clear out of the sandlot into mean old Mr. Mertle (James Earl Jones)’s junkyard, home to Mertle’s legendary guard dog The Beast.
