Chicken Soup to the Rescue!

Chicken Soup to the Rescue!

Earlier this week I wrote about my need for comfort food because I could feel my family’s stress level escalating. What I forgot was that being rundown usually leads to compromised immune systems. And that leads to someone getting a cold/flu/something-equally nasty, and it’s only a matter of time before it goes from one kid to the next. I only clued in when Milla and Theo woke up this morning with sore throats and stuffy noses. One would think that after almost 15 years of being a parent, I would remember the signs — crankiness, sleeplessness, neediness — and be more proactive. (Interestingly, their symptoms haven’t changed since they were infants.) But there is no time to be sick right now people! So not only am I loading everyone up with Vitamin C and the dreaded Oil of Oregano (Karine Trick: for those who detest the taste but believe in it’s benefits, try massaging the oil onto your little one’s feet), I am going to batch cook a couple of these chicken soups. Because even if it’s an old wives tale, this old wife truly believes in the healing power of homemade chicken soup. If you have a secret, will-cure-any-virus-quickly soup recipe, please share asap! I have my fingers crossed that Wyatt and Beckett don’t catch whatever it is the other two have (or, god forbid, my husband — I would take a sick kid over a sick husband any day!) and I need my kids healthy by the weekend. #touchwood
