This week taught me that perhaps there are a few items I should keep handy for those times. We don't have family here to watch W for a few minutes while I grab the bland food needed for the week. J isn't able to just run home from work to quickly stock the pantry. My choices are then to take W with me and expose him to more nasty germs via grocery cart or wait until J gets home and head out after dinner leaving a sick toddler who wants his momma. It's nothing against Daddy; when I'm sick I want my mom and I'm a grown woman!
There are a few items I can and should keep on hand just in case:
Those "oyster crackers?' Perfect for a snack-happy but sick wee bit.
novel shaped pasta,
(the not pictured) apples,
And know that survival is possible. I'm not talking about non-stop vomiting type of bug. Obviously, there won't be much eating going on then.
But most of these items I can keep in the pantry for sick days, minus the white bread. I can't remember the last time I had that in house, but I can tell you how much I love it! Those processed carbs do not mess around with my sandwich cravings.
And just when I thought I might be at my wit's end with toddler's tummy troubles, a spark of post decaf green tea creativity hit, and I surprised myself with a bland breakfast masterpiece.
Do you have any other sick staples to add to the list?
