Health is Wealth..I know!, The Story of our BLYF

Battling Mouth Sores

it’s very difficult for a parent to nurse a sick child. It breaks our heart and makes us swear never to go drunk for a year, which in my case have been 3 years.  Mothers always appear to be in control on tough times but deep inside, it freaks the hell out of us when a child’s temperature is above normal, coughs, colds and what not. Probably the most difficult to deal with so far are mouth sores, they are painful, annoying and they make a child cranky to the ends of the earth. My daughter is not usually too cranky when having fever or cough or colds but mouth sores makes her just want to cuddle all day. She refuses to eat and cries a lot. It is difficult because we know how it feels, even adults hate to deal with mouth sores.

I bought some medicines but I still Googled some instant remedy so Blyf will eat her food and drink her milk. I found few great articles telling me about changing diet. Also,  it talks about aloe vera and baking soda as good home remedies. They seem to sound great to use except that I have no baking soda and aloe vera at home. Also, changing diet seems ambiguous at this point. Then I came to this article “10 Home Remedies for Canker Sores” and number 7 says, “Apply Ice”. Wow, I happen to have loads of it. I took a glass and loads of ice, put some water and let Blyf drink the coldest water of all. She liked it. She ate her food, although I am not sure if it was because of the ice or the fact that she was just too hungry and ignored the pain. Either way, our dinner went smooth and painless.

There are times when we wish our kids to not go through pain or sickness or difficulty. Pain and difficulty is a must in life. Sickness. maybe, but what can we do really? I can only be there and hold her hand and let her not go through it alone. She misses daddy who’s been a way for a week now. Come home already, dad! 🙂

 

That smile.

Simple Joys, The Story of our BLYF

The best three years of our lives- Blyf turns 3!

Blyf, Dad and Mommy
Blyf, Dad and Mommy

We asked God for Blyf, just like I asked God for a good husband. I conceived her not believing that I was, I thought it was just nausea and upset stomach. I had difficulty realizing that I have a uterus and that my ovaries where functioning, after-all. Lucky for us, it only took us a year to have a child. I know every child is a blessing-for parents or for a mother, their children are special. That’s when I felt when I held Blyf for the first time. A cliché, I know, but it’s true what they say. Childbirth and motherhood is a turning point of a woman’s life!

Today, we are celebrating Blyf’s Birthday for the first time in the province with my special people. She turns 3. Today, she is a year wiser and a lot lovelier. She brought us not just joy, she gave me perspective. She is why my husband is more tolerant of my annoying behavior. She is why I lost pride inch by an inch in every argument.

I’ve said this before and I am going to say it again, Blyf is our love brought to life.

For all who is celebrating their birthdays today, I wish you all a Happy Birthday! 🙂

For children around the world, my prayers and wishes for good health! We are here, and we will celebrate with you in thoughts! Have a blast!
