The Daycare Crud

Hey friends!
I'm writing to you a sleep deprived haze. But you all were on my mind and I realized how much I miss you! 

I hope you all are doing well and getting more sleep then I am! Why am I not getting any sleep you ask? Well...

Two weeks ago my little Boogie was enrolled in daycare. By the end of week one she was sick. I'm talking snotty nose, coughing up a lung sick. By the middle of week 2, the cough was worse. I had taken her to the ER on a Saturday with instructions to follow up with her primary Doctor. At that appointment she was diagnosed with pneumonia. 

So, when she sleeps she coughs. When she coughs too hard she vomits. So neither of us have had much sleep lately and both of us need it. Pray for us y'all!

With multiple trips to the doctor, more medicine than she's ever taken in her 2.5 years of life, she's showing signs of improvement but still has a long way to go. 

I've never had pneumonia and I pray to God I never get it and she never gets it again. Settling a 2 year old for 4-5 breathing treatments a day gives me cardio that I otherwise wouldn't get so I guess that's a plus! 

She still cries at daycare drop off and it makes me question my decision a little. I hope her being home a few days doesn't set us back too bad! I can already tell she's learning a ton. Even through the tears.

Happy almost Spring guys! Don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
