A sick toddler in the house is not easy
They beg too much
They are annoyed too easy
They annoy you too
They complain for nothing and about anything
They are so clingy all the time
They nag too much
It’s tantrum 1 to 100
They vomit healthy food and only want to eat the junk stuff
Our little one is not feeling so well today. It started yesterday. Lil bit warm. She vomited a couple of times. A runny nose.
Although she wasn’t feeling too well she was still ready for some action. She took a long morning walk in the meadow to pick some oranges.
She ate her orange like never before. Good girl. A lil bit of veggie soup with okra, chicken, corn and spinach. And of course, she had lots of biscuits. (As long as she eats right?)
But she wanted more action. Like that walk in the meadow wasn’t enough or what? She wanted to go fishing. I start to doubt her being sick. Anyway, we went fishing. And she caught some fish by herself. Good girl!
So what do you do when your kid doesn’t feel to well? What do you do to make them happy?
Do you ever feel like u want to give your kid anything, ANYTHING, just for the sake of their happiness? Even if it means “torture” for you or giving up your last piece of chocolate or stepping out of your comfort zone? Parenthood is about making sacrifices. Sometimes it’s easy but a lot of times it’s quite the opposite. I mean their happiness is yours as well, right?
We already knew our little one loved animals and nature. She’s such a brave girl. But hiking through the forest? Now that was new. Out of nowhere, she asked to take a hike through the jungle. First of all her Dad had other plans and second, the thought about all those blood sucking mosquitos wasn’t so appealing to ME.
Finally, Mike decided to make a change in his plans, while I decided to fight against that crazy little mosquito swarm…just for the sake of her happiness. We went into neighbour’s jungle.
In the woods, the girl hardly complained. Al those mad mosquitos flying around her…oh how they were so happy for fresh blood. This Mama, on the other hand, was fussing and hitting everywhere 🤔 those mad mad MAD beasts!
The little human enjoyed the hike. The trees. The grass. The flowers. The atmosphere there. That nature smell. The mosquitos loved her and poor me too. Honestly, I think she loved the excitement, it’s like an adventure.
It is funny to see how she enjoys nature so much. It brings back some little wild memories from way-way-way back. Those were the days. Now she’s making some of her own adventurous memories in the jungle.
Life on a farm is different than life in the city. Life on this farm is different than life on other farms. Different in different ways. Some good, but honestly some not. But trying to cope and take the most out of it is the best thing to do. So I choose to capture all the beauty around us. Beauty in the little things…such as a little yet beautiful flower. Or an adventurous little one who’s enjoying this life to the fullest.
Nature around us has so many beauty in it. The flowers. The trees. The grass. The “jungle” and its inhabitants. Let’s not forget the cows on the farm. The beauty is everywhere if you just take the time to see and enjoy.
I’m not a professional photographer but I have to admit capturing the crazy, funny but beautiful and mesmerizing moments on camera is very cool. The pics may not be perfect but they are some pretty wild memories to keep.
February Birthdays coming up and that means rainy season! 🌧 What do you do when it rains?
Today I’ve let our little one play in the rain. And she had tons of fun. Didn’t even want to go inside when it stopped raining.
I have to admit before we moved to this place I didn’t let her play so much outdoors. This mommy was such a scared paranoid mouse 😂 not sure if paranoid is the best word but I guess I saw danger everywhere outside the house when it comes to playtime.
But now we are here. With so much nature around us. Am still paranoid tho but not so much… I guess? 🤔
But as a kid I’ve enjoyed playing outside. I’ve enjoyed rain and mud. I’ve enjoyed trees and grass. It was such an adventure. I know the excitement. The joy. The fun. So why keep her away from these experiences? I may still see danger everywhere but I don’t want to hold back these great life experiences for our little one. Besides that she’s such a brave one, ready for all the action outdoors. To be honest she’s braver than me😎
One day she’ll thank me for these moments!
So What did you do as a kid when it rained outside?
