Sometimes I look around at my incredibly blessed life and it actually scares me.
How could things be so good? Somethings gotta give. Somethings gotta go bad.
Life is filled with peaks and valleys, so I know there are trials and tough times ahead.
A comforting thought that I have when I start worrying about that is that at times when my life wasn’t this good.
When I was going through really hard things.
Even at the most difficult times, I have always been more-or-less happy.
It makes me feel like even though a perfect life is not attainable, a happy life is.
It’s cliche I suppose but it’s true. Look for the good. Cherish the sweet moments.
Value life for what it is and don’t hold out on happiness for what it isn’t.
I love that.
So Billy has been extra fussy the last few days and that’s always so stressful with a young baby because it could easily just be teething or general fussiness or a little bit of a tummy ache but it could also be an ear infection or something of the like. My main go to is always thinking it’s an ear infection. Then I’m asking Nick “Should we take him into the doctor.”
“He’s not feverish?”
“I know but before when he had one he wasn’t?”
You get the drift. I feel like I’m always worrying about things like this as a mom. So a couple of days ago I decided instead of wondering all the time I’ll just get myself otoscope of my own. Then if it looks fine I can put myself at ease and if it’s red then I’ll know I need to take him to see the Doc. I did a little research and found one on amazon (my BFF) I plan on bringing it to my next Doctor’s appointment so he can show me exactly how to use it and what I’m looking for.
Anyway, I thought I’d share because it only cost 40 bucks so if it saves me two unnecessary doctor’s appointments it’ll have paid for itself in co-pays alone!
I also wanted to mention that for all of you who purchased Maskcara makeup at the launch party (or since the release) it was a 2-4 week pre-sale (I know some folks missed that message on the product page) but the time has come! We started shipping this week! There was a HUGE amount of orders so we’ve been busting our butts to get them all out ASAP! Thanks so much for your support! I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
Have a great weekend!!!
