As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

What You Need in a Cold and Flu Season Kit

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and you know what that means…. time to duck and dodge those icky cold and flu germs! It seems like everywhere we go, people are coughing, sneezing or wiping their nose onto their hands. YUCK! There’s no easy way to steer clear of those germs and I haven’t found a family-sized bubble on the market yet, so instead, I pack my family a Cold and Flu Season Kit. It contains everything you need for the season, in an easy to carry bag. My girls stick it in their backpacks and we keep one in the car. It’s become a must-have for our family!

Since we are constantly asked about these cute little kits, I thought it was finally time that I share what you need to stock up on, to make your own. They are an inexpensive way to make sure you have everything you need to keep the germs away, and to fight them off if they get you or your family.

Cold and Flu Season Kit, therazinc, quantum health, lozenges, cold season kit, elderberry, throat spray, sore throat, surviving cold and flu season, immune boost, teenagers, cold and flu remedies, flu season, raising teens, raising teen girls, growing children, growing teen, preteens, mom blog, mom blogger, mommy blog, mommy blogger, 2018, family blog, parenting blog, the super mom life, thesupermomlife, parenting blogger, family blogger

What’s Inside our Cold and Flu Season Kit?

Clear Travel Bag: While there are a bunch of clear travel bags on the market, I highly recommend getting a clear travel bag that is TSA-approved. While you may not be using it for travel now, you will have one handy for your next trip!

Immune Support TheraZinc Lozenges: These come in two delicious flavors (blood orange and elderberry raspberry) and are perfect to boost your immune system when it needs it most. I always pack a few of each flavor in our kits.

Cough Relief Lozenges:These lozenges are a must-have for us all year long, but especially during winter months. They help to sooth your throat and are made from the highest quality ingredients. They are available in two flavors, bing cherry and meyer lemon with honey.

1 oz Hand Sanitizer: Make sure to get a flip top dispenser bottle so it doesn’t spill. Hand sanitizer kill 99.99% of germs that may cause illness in as little as 15 seconds. I also prefer the sanitizer that contains moisturizers to leave hands feeling soft and refreshed and not sticky like some can leave you feeling.

Lip Balm: It’s so important to hydrate and sooth dry lips, especially when the temperatures drop. We recommend lip balms that contain 100% natural ingredients.

Travel Size First Aid Kit: A first aid kit is a great year-round tool for your kids to take to school. They include essential first aid items like hand cleansing wipes and bandages. If your kids are anything like mine, they are always looking for a bandage!

TheraZinc Elderberry Lozenges: These lozenges contain zinc, proven in clinical studies to strengthen the immune system, and elderberry which together provide a more effective boost. TheraZinc releases zinc ions in your mouth and throat for all around support. They are flavored with raspberry, so they taste great. My kids love them!

Individual Pack of Tissues: When you have kids, these little packs are the best! It beats giving them a handful of tissues and having them come back with a crazy mess in their backpacks!

TheraZinc Spray: This spray gives you the most immediate dose of zinc gluconate for immune support, soothing your throat with oils and extracts. It provides a full dose of effective zinc, menthol, clove bud and peppermint oil, along with cherry bark and slippery elm extract.

Believe it or not, these cold and flu season kits are a real hit with my kids’ friends. They are always prepared when a friend is in need and I make sure to have extras at home so if they run out of anything, they can stock up before the following school day. You can never be too prepared, especially during cold and flu season!

    I have heard good things about zinc and it’s benefits for colds. I haven’t tried it though.

    Clear bags are kind of a big deal nowadays since we need them for everything from concerts to travel. They are so handy!

    I think this is such a wonderful idea. I’m going to have to make a few of these now. I really love this idea! I think it would be great for everyone in my home to have their own.

    I love it. We do everything we can to keep from getting the flu and colds, but when we do get them, we have a kit ready.

  • robin rue

    It sounds liek you have thought of everything! I am so glad flu and cold season has just about passed here so I have time to stock up before the fall.

  • Patricia @ Grab a Plate
    January 10, 2019

    These individual bags are such a great idea! My family all around the country are catching the season’s bug. I will let them know about these items. I’ve started taking elderberry immune boost gummies — I think they’re working! Just heard about elderberry & its great properties!

    Ahh, I definitely need a kit like this! I am always the first who get the flu virus. It’s so annoying when I have it!

  • Anosa Malanga
    December 18, 2018

    I couldn’t agree more on having something like this during cold season. Definitely a kit that people should always have in their home or bags to be able to get ready. Better ready than sorry.

  • Agnes Vazhure

    I think that is such a great idea to have a cold and flu season kit. It is great to be prepared that not. I will share this to my cousins.

  • Becca Wilson

    Having a kit like this for the winter season is so important. I know that we have slowly been making ours so we are prepared.

  • Patricia-Ann Que
    December 17, 2018

    I recently moved to North America and I’m only realizing now how the change of weather can affect ones health! Having a kit like this is must to survive the change from fall to winter, this is surely an idea I will adopt.

  • Nancy at Whispered Inspirations

    We always have a cold/flu kit. With our cold winters and what seems like super long cold/flu season, it’s a must. These are great options.

  • Gladys Nava

    Oh yes! Most of this season I am always getting cough/colds and I really need this kit! I am glad that those tips are really important and looks so effective. Thanks for this!!

  • Marysa

    What a great idea for cold and flu season. I haven’t heard of that zinc spray, but it sounds great. I have those zinc lozenges and they are great for when you feel a cold coming on.

  • Crystal // Dreams, etc.

    It’s a great idea to send these kits with your kids! I should put one together for the office.

    There is nothing better than being prepared for the flu season. I love this idea! I would put some ginger drops in my bag for an upset tummy. They work wonders when your stomach feels off.

  • Viv for Today

    One of my go-to preventatives is Oregano Oil. Don’t think your kids would appreciate that in their kits. It’s quite disgusting!

  • Amber Battishill

    This is such a great idea of something to always have this time of year! WE love using Zinc products when we feel illness coming on.

    Zinc is very effective on me for stopping a cold in its tracks. I do love the kit, though, because I travel a lot.

  • Amber Myers

  • Tomi C

    Lip balm is a must. You lose so many fluids and lips get all parched and dry. I stock up on travel size OTCs and pack a get well bag for my college kid.

  • Sarah Bailey
    December 14, 2018

    I 100% need to look into making something like this, I’m bound to come down with a stinker of a cold at some point and so having a kit ready and waiting is such a good idea.

  • Katherine G Beck

    Strapping that to a kid’s backpack is genius! Doing that this weekend for sure. Thanks for the tip, I can’t believe i had not thought of that earlier.

  • Joanna
    December 14, 2018

    I am recovering from a cold and there’s nothing worse to have when you travel. I always have my medicine bag with me but sometimes the viruses are stronger than all the measures we do to prevent getting them.

  • Melissa Chapman
    December 14, 2018

    I never took these lozenges but zinc is a great nutrient for so many things. I will remember this remedy when the kids get sick this winter.

    That’s a great kit to have on hand during cold and flu season. I have most of those things but I do need to replenish my supply and grab a couple of the items you mentioned.
