After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Growing up, I always wanted a sibling. I wished over every star and every birthday candle. I even asked my magic eight ball constantly if I would ever have one but as many times as it told me “all signs point to yes”, I remained an only child. I look forward to the days when my three girls appreciate that they have best friends for life... two women who will always have their back, lend them a hand or provide a shoulder to cry on. In the meantime, I make sure to create fun reasons for them to “work” together without bickering. So, I’m excited to announce that Iyla and Falynn are starting a new venture together, @thesuperkidlife and I hope you’ll follow along and show them some love. Although I will run the IG page for them for now, Iyla will be in charge of content and stories, so you’re in for a treat! They already have their first sponsored posts lined up! Stay tuned. . .

What You Need in a Cold and Flu Season Kit

If You Love It, Share It!

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!

  • Patricia @ Grab a Plate

    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!

  • Anosa Malanga

    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.

    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

  • 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

    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.
