Hello, Flu... Nice to See You Again (Not)

Is it just me, or has flu season arrived early this year?

I'd like to say I saw it coming, but I didn't. I should have, because we got an email warning us that it could be coming, but I thought we might escape. I'm talking about the flu. By all accounts, it's arriving early this year, and our household was no different. Last week the flu hit four out of five of us, and it was not pleasant. Chills, body aches, fevers and vomiting, the works.

And while lots of people will get the flu vaccine this year to try to prevent getting this nasty virus, there are some other things our family likes to do as well to prevent the bug from sweeping through. Again.

Check out the video to see what we do, and if it might work for you!

The only upside of the flu in #momlife is that you get to stay in bed all day.

Until next time, stay healthy, everyone!
