Ok, we have an adorable 4 month old goddaughter. She has blue eyes, gorgeous dimples and a beautiful little smile. Her mom dropped her off to spend a little time with us this evening. Unfortunately, our little princess cried for 30 – 45 minutes, non stop, prior to her mother returning. Why did she cry for such an extended period of time? Cereal! Her mom is attempting to introduce her to rice cereal. Apparently it’s either not agreeing with her little tummy or her parents are putting wayyyy too much in her bottle. Now, back to the crying… after trying everything from rocking her to taking her for a walk in her stroller I decided to go “old school”. I went into the bathroom and turned on the blow dryer. Within about two minutes the crying stopped and in about 20 minutes the baby was asleep on my shoulder. Who comes up with these ideas? I don’t know but I’m glad they shared that one!
Thanks for reading and feel free to pass this little helpful tip along to any and all of your young parent friends and colleagues.
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
