Just what a mom wants to hear when her kids are healthy. Also, it turns out that this particular stomach bug is knocking kids off their feet for days.
Cold? Sore throat? I can deal with you. Stomach flu? Stay. the heck. away.
I went grocery shopping last weekend and as I came across the soup aisle, I decided to stock up on all the things we'd need if our boys get hit with the stomach flu. Maybe, just maybe, my advanced preparation will ward off the germs. It's wishful thinking, but at least I won't have to make an emergency dash to the store or worse yet, call a neighbor or family member to go out for me if and when a puke fest strikes.
As I shopped, I realized how much of my sick-day supplies are shaped by what my mom used to feed me as a kid when I was home with stomach woes. Does this happen to you?
Check out the slide show for eight things you should have on hand in case your kids bring home the stomach flu.
