Today’s mama is my mama!  You may remember her from this post.  She’s the most amazing mom ever.  She loves to laugh, always has a smile, is constantly looking on the bright side, and is the most nurturing person on the planet.  She truly sees the good in everyone.  She’s always up for an adventure.  She would give you her last penny if you needed it.  She’s taught me so many things in my life and continues to be an example of grace, patience, love, and faith.

The Common Cold

collage

Back to school is a time of year when children glean more than just an education from their classroom and classmates, they can also get the common cold and many other illnesses.  Which means that parents, caregivers, teachers, and just about everybody else are at risk as well.  No fun!

My husband will tell you that I am a terrible patient who HATES to take medicine.  Sadly, this is true.  I chalk it up to having a fabulous mom that took really great care of me all the time, but especially when I was under the weather.  I just need a little extra TLC, sheesh!  Anyway, when Nick and I were engaged I got super sick but couldn’t take any time off work because I planned to use all my vacation days for the wedding and honeymoon.  One day he stopped by my office and brought me an entire grocery bag of get-well goodies.  Orange juice, cough drops and syrups, magazines, vapor rub, healing bath salts, tea, shower melting things, a humidifier with essential oils… I think he basically bought out the entire medicinal section.  Love that man.  The bottom line is that no one has time to be sick, no one likes being sick, and I don’t like to take medicine!  Ha!  See, it’s true.  But I am a fan of vitamins – go figure.

Today’s pinsperation is all about the common cold.  For more health inspiration follow my Health and Fitness Board.  You can find all my boards and pins here.  Enjoy!

Mama Tech: Top 10 apps for Moms and Kids

A good app can make life soooooo much easier!  I love when I can get things out of my mind and clear up some space.  I also like an app that will keep my kids busy and educated.  I’ve never really given my kids free range of my phone or even let my kids handle my phone much.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just been what I’ve done, it wasn’t a conscious choice I made, it was just something I never thought to do.  Both my kids get plenty of tech exposure from relatives and their dad.  From phones to the iPad, they know how to navigate to apps or pictures.
