*This post “Knock Out the Flu” is sponsored by K-mart. However, all opinions are my own* We did back-to-school shopping for Ziana last month, but back-to-school doesn’t just mean getting the necessary supplies for your kid and making sure they get all their necessary shots, but it also means taking care of ourselves.
