What I Learned this week...
You can never be too over-zealous when it comes to the health of your children. The last couple weeks as my B has been sick off and on, I worried a little bit about taking her into the doctor for a simple virus that they wouldn't be able to do anything about. I don't know how many times I have taken one of my children into the doctor only to be sent home because "it's viral" or "we just need to wait it out."
I do believe that sometimes doctors dismiss mothers too much. I do believe that we jump to conclusions often because they are our very own precious babies. But last week when I called the nurse at our pediatrician's office to see if I should bring B in or not what I really wanted to do was just take her in to be checked out. I'm over the guilt thing (kind of) but my initial instinct was to bring her in and I ignored it.
So, I learned - don't ignore my mommy instincts. Even if they turn out to be wrong I know I will feel better next time that followed my gut.
And some other random lessons learned...
- I learned that Spring Break was fun with my kiddos and it went way too fast. We spent some time at a museum but mostly just hung out at home. It was pretty low key and that is just fine by me!
- I learned that I am EXCITED to be leaving for a women's retreat this Friday! Hello beach, here I come. I've missed you so much.
- I learned that I HATE dieting and that you should probably not start one the week before the Easter Bunny brings chocolate bunnies and jelly beans to your house.
- I learned last night that the show "24" just might give me heart failure. What is T thinking?!?!? I don't want to spoil so I won't spill any details here but if you watched it last night, you know what I am talking about. I'm actually so bummed! Seriously, that is one kick-bahooty show!
