#AMomCanDream $25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway from Pfizer! #ad #sickjustgotreal

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



I remember it like it was yesterday. We were ready for our big holiday trip to New York City to see the Macy's Parade. We had a very posh hotel (unusual for us, we usually select family hotels/resorts) booked and ready to go, in an excellent location for enjoying the festivities. Seeing the parade is something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember. And then #sickgotrealTM and my youngest came down with a really nasty flu bug. Like the mom in the video above, I was instantly overwhelmed, and wishing I could be in NYC watching the parade with the family because hey, #AMomCanDream, but that only lasted a few seconds. In an instant, I knew it was far more important that my son, who was sick, be snuggled up in his own bed, not traveling, and that I be right there by his side.


We're always ready for those times when an unexpected sick day comes to visit in our family. We keep a steady supply of Pfizer platform products on hand. Whether it's cold, cough, fever or flu (or any combination of the above) we've got the right product in the house to make sure the kids are getting rest and relief.


I can't protect my kiddosfrom germs and sickness all of the time, but I can make sure they're comfortable while they're recovering. Thank you Pfizer, for being there.

Visit the #SickJustGotRealTM website to learn more about the Pfizer line of products. Pick up some great tips while you're there, and chances are high too, that you'll even score a coupon or two. You can also follow along on Facebook.

One lucky winner gets a $25 Visa Gift Card, courtesy of Pfizer. US entrants only.

Thank you for the opportunity to win! I dislike my kids being sick especially when it is a holiday or something important going on!

Masshole Mommy said...

That is an awesome giveaway! I would use it towards our Disney trip this summer!

Katherine Hahn said...

I love their products, they are the best for kids! Although my kids are older now, I used a lot of these when they were young.

Bernadette Callahan said...

Childrens Advil and Robitussin are must have meds here. They usually work the best when the kids are sick.

Shelly Peterson said...

It's sad to see your kids sick and you want nothing more then for them to get better. These are great products to use to help them feel better.

Lisa Brown said...

Lots of soup, rest, meds and love make all the difference when a child is sick.

kellyr78 said...

I always have medicine on hand for the times my kids are sick. Dimetapp is one that always works well.

Great giveaway. Hope the little ones are well!

Suburban prep said...

It is always nice to have some sort of medication on hand when a family member gets sick so that you can tend to them and not have to leave them and go out at the last minute finding stuff to help them feel better. It is not fun seeing a love one not feel well.

Janet W. said...

I hate when my grandsons are sick. I just have to forget about everything that needs to get done around the house and my main concern is to make them feel better.

Julie Wood said...

It is so hard when my son or daughter gets sick and it is good to have good medicine when they are sick. I usually spend time with them and try and make them feel better by having soup, snuggling in bed and watching movies or reading books!

Pat Hatt said...

The nasty flu bugs never hit at good times, as if there is ever a good time. Ugg to germs

michele376 said...

My kids are grown but I always have some of these on hand for the grandchildren. Great products.

katieoscarlet said...

I like that Pfizer has coupons on their site.

Elizabeth Miller said...

Robitussin is our absolute go to medicine for nighttime cough. It helps ease the cough so my daughter can sleep.

Sandee said...

I can remember so many times that a trip was cancelled or interrupted because of illness.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Realia Mazing said...

we go through a good amount of robutussin in our house - works great

Robin said...

Illness isn't choosy about when it comes calling. It tends to pick inconvenient times (not that there really is a convenient time)...

Rebecca Zoeller said...

I agree, if someone is unwell it is time for luxuries and kindness and diversions.

Catherine Sargent said...

They have a great line of products. I kept several of them stocked in the cabinet when my son was little. Thanks for the giveaway.

Cindy Merrill said...

Being sick is never much fun, is it? My grandfather made a homemade cough syrup that worked, but the stuff tasted awful.

Mami2jcn said...

I hate it when the kids get sick! We use Advil.

MELISASource said...

This is a great giveaway from a great company. I use more Pfizer products than I realized for my family!

school just breeds germs, kids get sick.

Julie's Lifestyle said...

We are going through allergy season right now with a lot of sneezing and stuffed noses. LOL.
I hope all is well with you. Enjoy the week.

Lisa Joy Thompson said...

It stinks when your kids are sick! One of my worst moments was when I was 1 hour into an 18 hour drive with my 2 daughters and my oldest daughter leaned over the seat (she was in the 3rd row) and threw up all over her self, her younger sister, and all the stuff we had in the car on our long trip. We were 30 minutes from the nearest exit and it was a disgusting smelly mess! I wish I had been better prepared on that trip!

Marcie W. said...

I totally understand this type of thing! My oldest and I both came down with food poisoning during our family trip to Disneyland. We spent the entire day sick in our hotel room.

peg42 said...

We always keep Children's Advil on hand just in case. Great product. Thanks.

Robyn Donnelly said...

I love kids and their antics sometimes.

All of these products are great.

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

I have used the Children's Advil when my son was sick.

Lori Gunn said...

It's disappointing your son got sick, but I know he appreciated you being prepared for seasonal bugs like flu and colds. Pfizer makes quality products moms (and dads) can rely on to help their kids be comfortable while recovering.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Nothing puts a damper on family travel like when someone in the house gets sick. We've had our fair share of #SickJustGotReal over the years and they certainly aren't fun!

D. Wood said...

Dimetapp is my favorite thing to use for my kids

Anonymous said...

Always a good idea to have products like these stocked at home when you have kids!

Crystal said...

It can be so tough when kids get sick while away from home. Sounds like you know how to fix them up quick! I'll make sure to add some to my travel bag.

steve weber said...

No likes to be sick! I can totally relate to this.

Nicole Escat said...

That's awesome! No one of us like to be sick especially our kids, but remember we need an emergency medicine like these.

Kim said...

Being sick is tough! I would rather be the sick one that have anyone else in my family sick :(

We love the Dimetapp cold and cough medicine. I'm probably going to be getting some today. It helps dry my daughter up when her allergies are acting up. Thank you!

alissa apel said...

Your son looks so sleepy!

Isaak has had his bout of Strep Throat and a cold late winter/early spring. I could have used some of this. The worst part was his high fevers, and sleep walking/talking.

Boulder Locavore said...

When my kids were younger I always packed a medicine bag too! Really bailed us out on many vacations.

When my kids are sick I spoil them.

Beeb Ashcroft said...

When my daughter got married, she moved to Pennsylvania. She was so excited to get to see the Macy's Day Parade live since it was a tradition of our family to watch it Thanksgiving Day. She too came down with a nasty bug and needed lots of medicine to make it through standing out in the freezing weather.

Barbara Montag said...

It's hard on the whole household when someone gets sick.
A lot of rest and fluids will help speed recovery.

SB said...

Don't forget to take medicine with you when you travel, my kids always get sick in those cases

~ Noelle said...

Sick little ones are the worst ... as in heartbreaking. Older sick ones are the worst as far as making it seem much more than it is :)
This reminds me, I need to restock from the weird winter.
We normally try to keep a range of basics on hand for the uh oh of a surprise sickness... need to get both infant and childrens restocked this time around.

Jackie said...

I feel horrible when the kids get sick. I know all we can do is try to keep them comfortable. Having the products you shared above on hand...just-in-case...is a great idea.
Thank you!

You are a very kind mom. My husband has vivid memories of going on a family vacation and being quite ill with fever and hallucinations from it when he was 11 years old and his family all going on a sight seeing adventure while he stayed @ the hotel by himself. Rosanne rosans4@comcast.net

Kelly Skibbe said...

Sick did really just get real. I have felt like garbage all day today! Started with a sore throat. Ugh!

Kristi Maloney said...

No parent wants their child to be sick, but to be prepared, having these meds on hand is so helpful. They can provide relief and help to get your kids well soon.
