We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists? The Book of Cultures is a 120 page book featuring 30 illustrated stories with characters from different countries, alongside activity pages with puzzles and fun facts. With everything going on in the world, now is the time to teach your children how important it is to embrace diverse perspectives, be tolerant and compassionate and understand how to cooperate with people from all corners of the planet. We are all human beings and we all have so much to teach one another. The Book of Cultures is available for the next 15 days on Kickstarter. It’s perfect for ages 3+, and all kids at heart.  @worldwidebuddies #bookofcultures  Pre-order your copy now: www.worldwidebuddies.com  #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer2020 #readingisfun #readinglist #readingtime #readersofinstagram #ilovereading #instaread #teachkindness #teachthemyoung #colorsplash #streetartist #streetart #wynwoodwalls #miamiart #kickstarter #diversity #diversityandinclusion #loveoneanother #inthistogether #oneworld #beautifulcolors

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts.

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number.

Remembering My Childhood with Vicks VapoRub

This post is sponsored, but all opinions are my own.

While there isn’t much of my childhood that I really remember anymore, there is one specific thing that I’ll never forget…  The soothing smell of Vicks VapoRub. When I was congested or had a cough, my Nana would always go into her medicine cabinet and grab the VapoRub.  Once she rubbed it on my chest and neck, I instantly felt comforted and was able to go to sleep. The smell still brings me back, all these years later.

My Nana and Papa’s house was a huge part of my childhood.  I remember every inch of that house. From the yellow wallpapered kitchen to the green 70’s style chairs in the living room.  The fruit trees that lined the sides and back of the home and the little bedroom where I would lay on the floor and make shadow puppets on the wall.  There was something about that house that always made me feel safe, comfortable and so loved.  Although, I think anywhere my Grandparents were, was my comfort zone.  My Grandparents were amazing people and I owe so much of my drive and personality to the both of them.  While I miss them enormously, I continue to share their methods with my own kids.

As a Mother of three, when my girls are congested, I have the job of bringing that same relief to my daughters when they’re feeling under the weather. They seem to bring home some sort of cough on a regular basis. Aren’t school germs awesome?  And it’s always the kind of cough that lingers and acts up at night.  When they are kept awake, so are we.  Lucky for us, VapoRub’s medicated vapors last up to 8 hours to help parents and children get cough relief so they can get rest.

When my girls are feeling under the weather, they know what to do. They grab the VapoRub from their medicine cabinet.  I love watching their faces as they inhale the medicated vapors and get ready for bed. I must have told them a million times that it was my Nana’s favorite.  Part of me thinks that they love it that much more, because it’s a part of her that they can still connect to. And while she’s no longer with us, her traditions can still live on through us.

While we can’t rely on much, I know that we can rely on Vicks. The Vicks® legacy is about more than just cold and flu medicine. It’s about giving families the opportunity to continue life—even on sick days—for more than 100 years.  I love that Vicks® VapoRub™  is great for ages two and up. It’s topical cough medicine with medicated vapors starts working quickly for adults as well to relieve cough symptoms. VapoRub is the #1 pediatrician recommended cough rub.

    I love how it smells. I have a cool mist humidifier from them and it has that scent. I have it going right now.

    This reminds me of my childhood too because my mom made sure that we always had Vicks VapoRub. And I still use Vicks VapoRub until now.

  • Jennifer

    Same here! Many nights I got Vick’s slathered on my chest so I could sleep when I had a cold

  • Nichole Arnold
    February 22, 2018

    My Mom used it on a me a few times. I keep it in stock at all times for my son. It really does help!

  • Lisa Bristol

    Vicks VapoRub is my go to when am congested. My Mom used to rub it on our feet and put socks on us. It always helps me feel better.

  • Wendy Polisi

    Vix was my mothers saving grace. She always used it to make us feel better.

    Oh yeah, I remember old school memories. I think my mom used Vicks for me when i was a child. It’s really good!

  • Chubskulit Rose

    My Mom always use this when we have a cold and couldn’t breath well. I do the same for my kids now.

  • Victoria Heckstall

    I love Vicks products. I always use that especially the one for the babies. I feel better whenever I used that.

    There are certain scents that bring back childhood for me and VapoRub is definitely a scent that brings back some memories! LOL!! Also boxed Mac and cheese!! HA

  • Dina Demarest
    February 21, 2018

    Yes my mom and grandparents used Vicks on me. I in turn use it on my kids and myself to this day. It’s such a great product.

  • Becky Willis
    February 21, 2018

    Yes, my Mom used to always use it on myself, my sister and brother. I remember she would drape like a washcloth over our chest and it was warm and somehow secure it around our neck. So when I had kids I thought I would do the same but my 2 boys hated anything like that so I would wait until they went to sleep then rub it on their back lol. Now if my husband and I use it we put it on our feet and put wool or heavy socks on. That works wonders.

  • Marcie W.

    The menthol scent of Vicks VapoRub definitely brings back memories! Now I use it on my babies when they are sick. Classic comfort for sure!

  • GiGi Eats

    I have actually NEVER used this stuff before!

    I can’t smell Vicks VapoRub (or anything that smells remotely similar, for that matter) without memories taking me back to my childhood. My mom would always rub it on my chest when I had a cold, as well as put a dab in our vaporizer that she would set up in my room. Not only are those fond memories, it works so well! My daughter uses it for her kids, too!

  • Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place
    February 21, 2018

    I don’t think I can live without Vick’s vaporub! We always have that at home and it’s the perfect product that provides instant relief not just for the kids but for me and my husband as well.

  • Paula Schuck
    February 20, 2018

    This is a brand that my Mom always used with us when we were sick. I totally trust Vicks and even kind of have come to like the smell and associate it with being a kid too.

  • Marysa
    February 20, 2018

    It’s funny, because I have heard so often how scents are linked so heavily with memories. So often, I smell something and it takes me back to somewhere, sometime. I do associate Vicks Vaporub with my childhood!

  • Michele Brosius
    February 20, 2018

    Oh my gosh! Vicks brings back a lot of childhood memories for me too. I can vividly remember my mom coming in my room in the middle of the night and rubbing it on my chest. I used it all of my kids, too.

  • Michele Brosius

    Vaporub is soooo handy. I even use it as an adult when I get sick-it always helped when momma used it.

    Hands up I love Vicks I have some in the draw in my bedroom and it always comes out when someone feels ill it really does help with breathing!

  • Jennifer Van Huss
    February 20, 2018

    Vicks is definitely a part of my childhood memories. Whenever I was sick, I remember my mom getting out the vick rub and putting it on my chest. The minty smell always makes me smile as I knew I would be able to sleep after she put it on!

  • Danielle Smith
    February 20, 2018

    How wonderful that is to have such fond memories with your grand-parents! Vick’s has been a big staple in my family’s life for many years. A friendly tip (unless you’ve heard of this before): Rub Vick’s on your feet and wear socks before climbing into bed. It works wonders!

  • Joely Smith
    February 20, 2018

    I LOVE Vicks Vapor Rub! I know that sounds silly but Vicks has been used for generations in my family! It reminds me of HOME in some strange way! Home being my grandmother’s where I grew up. Vicks WORKS in the way that is should but it is also just so soothing when you feel horrible. We all want that right?!

  • Stacie
    February 20, 2018

    The smell of Vick’s brings such great memories for me. I remember how nice it felt to be tucked in and doted over by my mom when I was feeling bad.
