My Dragon Beasties can Breathe Easy because we are Vicks Ready!

Vicks Kit 2

Hello Sweeties!

Don`t you just detest the strange change of weather we have been having the past few months? There are days where there is the bright warm sunshine then by mid afternoon sweltering heat and early evening heavy rains! The sudden change in temperature along with getting wet by a sudden down pour may lead to a bout of cough, cold or heaven forbid a flu!

I always make sure my beasties take their vitamins but whenever a cold or flu would strike it is best to be prepared.

This is one reason why I was so happy that P & G and Vicks sent these to my door.  As a child of the 80s.  My Mom`s medicine cabinet was always well stocked with Vicks VapoRub. I am sure at one point a parent, grandparent or guardian has applied or massaged  this mentholated tropical ointment on your chest, back or throat, to unclogged noses to help us sleep better at night when we are feeling sick.  Although memories of being ill is never good, I always remember  the  feeling of  worry, concern, care  and love of my own Mum whenever I see a jar of Vicks VapoRub and because of this I too always have a jar of it handy at home.

Do you want to find out what is in the box?

Be a Hands-On Parent while Earning Through the H.O.P.E. Summit



Hello Sweeties!

I have been a working Mom for the past 16 odd years. Maybe because I have seen my Mom do it and do it well, I have not thought there was an alternative. Aside from the economic aspect of being working Mom that really works well for us, living and raising kids now days, is no joke. My husband needed to go abroad for us to make ends meet.

This is what makes this the H.O.P.E Summit so interesting for me. It is toted as an alternative to working in an  office where most of the time to I am away from my kids. As much as I try to balance everything and be completely part of their everyday lives,  I feel there could be much more I could do.
