How Do You Kick a Cold?

No comments:
We're all feeling a little bit under the weather here at our house--especially Grace--and I was wondering if you had any remedies to get rid of the common cold? Mostly I just increase the amount of Vitamin C in her diet and slather Vicks on the soles of her feet and chest at night, but nothing seems to be working. She sounds hoarse, acts crabby, and coughs all night long. Help! 

What do you do when your kids are sick?  Do you feed them chicken noodle soup?  Do you feed them spoonfuls of honey and squirt nasal spray up their nose?  
Also, do you tend to keep sick kiddos indoors?  If so, maybe you should reconsider and send them outside!

It took me a really long time to start wearing lipstick.

But after trying a few different shades and getting used to seeing the color on my face, things started to change...

Do You Eat Together as a Family?

For as long as I can remember, some of my favorite movie scenes revolve around big, boisterous families eating meals together. There's something so comforting in the clanking of dishes, the shouts to pass the salt, bread being broken and memories being created. Watching a family eat is a great way to get a quick read on their family dynamics, don't you think?
Ever since Grace was old enough to sit up on her own, Jim and I have included her in our meals. At first she sat in a saucer seat on the table, sucking soft foods like avocado and smashed banana through the net in her Fresh Foods Feeder, smearing food into her hair and all across her tray. She loved being a part of what we had going on, and we loved listening to her squeal with delight as she tasted her first bites of real food...
