There is nothing quite like a mother’s touch when you are feeling under the weather. Even at the age of 28, I still long to be taken care of by my mother when I’m not feeling my best.
We at the Bird House have had a serious case of spring fever – literal spring fever. Already having more than our fair share of coughs, sneezes, and earaches: you know, all the fun stuff the change of the weather brings.
As one season ends and another one begins, the sibling sleepovers don’t have to come to a close. My children love having sleepovers with one another, but if one has a cough it can mean a long night and longer day for all of us, which is why we love our Vicks® VapoRub™. I have found with a touch of love combined with Vicks® VapoRub™ all my little loves can still sleep together while we all get a good night’s rest.
When the coughs start up I will go to my medicine cabinet and grab the Vicks® VapoRub™. This is always the perfect way to end our day and start our good night’s rest. I take my pointer and middle finger and swirl a dollop of Vicks® VapoRub™. My kids all know what this means as they flip on their tummies and lift their shirts as I gently massage the Vicks® VapoRub™ onto their chests and backs.
Maybe when they are grown, they won’t associate with me any certain perfume, but rather the smell of Vicks® VapoRub™ and remember the way they all used to fit in a bed and the way their mother used to love them by a simple touch of love.
