Welcome back to my blog

I’ve got a little poem for you!

I've Got a Trick Up My Sleeve Wellbeing Poorly Ill Child Parenting Vicks VicksTricks
Do you like fairytales?  I must admit I do!


And you’re in luck cos here’s a happy ending just for you!


This tale starts with sniffles, coughs and ‘atishooooo!’


And then, oh no, your child catches it from you…


There’s lots of cuddles to go round, a TV show or two,


Lots of rest and reading time to get them feeling just like new!


But wait, there’s another trick right up my sleeve,


It helps their airways unblock and helps them to breath…


A dab of ‘magic’ on their night clothes, their blanket or their teddy,


Means a better sleep all round; get set, we’re ready!


‘Cos rest is what they need when their immune system’s low,


Lots of cuddles on the sofa, it’s time to take it slow.
The ‘magic’ is Vicks VapoRub, a classic first aid trick,


That parents rely on when little ones are sick.


#VicksTricks are an essential for any child who is unwell,


They’ll pick up in no time, which is great for you as well!

Vicks believe that traditional love, fun & laughter are key to comfort your children when they aren’t feeling themselves. That’s why Vicks have developed a series #VicksTricks magic videos that are simple, easy and great fun to replicate!  Like the sliced banana one, which is mine and our daughter’s favourite!
Family Psychologist Corinne Sweet highlights that “one of the most powerful antidotes to sickness developing further, is parental care and concern.”  And I couldn’t agree more!


What do you do to soothe your child when they’re poorly?  I’d love to hear from you.  Please comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere .


Thank you 🙂
