Kick that Spring Cold to the Curb with Vicks #PGMomGiveaway

 Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.


_________ 


Last night I found myself lying in bed tossing and turning and definitely not sleeping.  Bouts of insomnia and difficulty sleeping aren't new to me, but it certainly didn't help that I was having a hard time breathing as I found myself stuffed up.  It then dawned on me that it was the first full day of Spring, and with this transition weather comes the lovely spring cold.  

The not so lovely spring cold

Being prone to colds is sucky.  I hate having a cold and I'm not the best mommy I can be when I'm down and out with a cold.

As I laid there sleepless last night, I realized that I had an arsenal at my fingertips for helping to fight off some symptoms of the common cold right here in my home.
