Your little girl is probably used to keeping you on your toes and busy, but sometimes they get sick and need to slow down a bit. Today, My little princess is sick. She has a horrible migraine and I have her tucked away in a dark room where she can rest. Sure, she would rather be up playing and doing other things, but it’s for her own good.
Here are some ideas for when your little girl is sick:
- Snacks and juice in bed
Whether it be juice boxes and goldfish crackers, or candy, she’ll love it when you set her up nice and comfy in bed. Remember, lots of fluids to help keep her hydrated.
If your little is anything like Mine, she loves her stuffies. They’ll be there to cuddle and comfort her (even when you cannot), and they’ll keep her company. Something about a stuffed animal just calms her right down…every time.
- Favorite movie
princess loves Disney movies, and can’t get enough of them. In her case, light is affecting her badly today, so maybe turn down the volume or brightness to suit your situation.
- Take time to check up on her
She’s not feeling well, and she needs her Daddy. If she has a fever, she won’t be thinking right. That’s where you come in! Be sure to sneak in and check up on her regularly. Your little girl will think you’re the best Daddy in the world, and won’t soon forget it.
- Good books
If she’s a reader, she might appreciate a good book or two. If you have time to read it to her, that’s even better!
- Bubble bath
They always seem to love bath time. Run a bath for your little (not too hot), and bring in some toys that she likes to play with in the tub. Don’t forget the bubbles!
It can be difficult to care for someone sick and grumpy, but be patient. Your little needs you, and it’s up to you to keep her feeling better until she REALLY feels better. You’ll uplift her spirits and she’ll love how you stayed the course through one of her more difficult times.
- Lots and lots (and lots) of sleep
It’s no mystery, but she’s probably exhausted. The movies and stuffies in bed are fun, but at some point she’ll really just need a good, long nap. Don’t underestimate sleep. She needs it
