Cold and Flu Home Remedies:

It’s that time of year again! I love the fall weather, but the common cold can really take a toll after a while. In our home a cold starts with a runny nose, which often turns into croup for at least a night or two for my three-year-old. After the first night of croup we typically go through a week of sneezing, a runny nose, crying, whining, 2-3 boxes of Kleenex, etc. Don’t get me wrong - I’m glad my kids get the opportunity to build their immune systems, but I like to get it over with as fast as possible. So here’s a little insight into what my home remedies are.

What We're All About
There’s been a bit of confusion lately regarding our store – and rightfully so! You see, A Tall Giraffe is primarily an online store! We don’t actually have a retail outlet with regular store hours, though a product display is available to view by appointment. You have our deepest apology for not clarifying that before now.
As mentioned in our ‘About Us’ page on our website, we’re passionate about families and that means offering great products and advice to those in southeastern Manitoba and beyond!

May Long Weekend Blues?
Here, in Friendly Manitoba, the weather is notoriously rainy on May Long weekend. It’s hard to think of things to do as a family, especially when you’re stuck in the house! I find that the best way to make memories is to do something you wouldn't normally do. Like taking your LOUD 2-year-old who loves reading to the library! Or risking a long drive with your baby and toddler. Although everyday life as a family is very important, life-long memories typically come when you lighten up and do something new. Here are a few suggestions to help maintain the sanity in your home (if it’s rainy where you are) and build family memories whatever the weather!!
