Keep baby wipes EVERYWHERE!
You never know when you’ll spill that milkshake all over yourself while driving your kids to and from places.
Nose picking is allowed.
As long as it’s your own child’s nose you’re picking, you’re good to go.
Everyone has an opinion about something.
If you ask for advice on parenting, beware of the wacko things people tell you. Some people are really off their rockers.
Trust your gut.
If you think something is wrong/off/odd – trust it! Don’t let someone tell you you’re crazy…even if you are a little crazy.
Keep your sick kid HOME!
I don’t care if you really need to get out of the house bc you have cabin fever – stay home & let your kid get better. And yes, that means you if your kid’s nose is dripping snot like Niagra Falls.
Breast is best?!
Don’t feel pressured to nurse your baby just because some people are freaking fanatics about it. Who the hell cares. Feed your baby however you see fit!
Give yourself a time-out.
Do you want to throw your kid out the window? We’ve all been there. I recommend just locking yourself in the bathroom for 5 minutes to give yourself a breather, then regroup – give it to God, call a friend – and move on.
I only give meds if it’s over 102 & they seem uncomfortable. Let the body do it’s job in killing off the virus. The more you subdue the fever, the longer it takes the body to fight it off.
