Baby steps....

I was born into a family of eight children, 7 of us are girls, all of us girls have at least one girl. The lone boy decided not to procreate. (who could blame him with all the girls???) Needless to say the family is full of drama queens!! Today I received a comment on yesterday's post from one of my nieces, the queen of being dramatic!!! She commented that my posts make her "nervous."  She is more like me than she wants to realize!!! Let me just give you an example... She posted on Facebook yesterday a shout out to her boyfriend because he deals with, essentially her dramatics. But specifically her fear of anesthesia that she will be getting during knee surgery. Recently a discussion with my hubby went like this:
Me: I was up for an hour in the middle of the night googling breast milk aspiration.
Him: Why? (you are crazy! look on his face)
Me: M was really congested and her breathing was very heavy and I was afraid the milk was going into her lungs.
Him: Eye roll (you are crazy! look on his face)
Anyway, it made me start to think about how overwhelming all of this move towards healthy living really is to me!!! Crazy enough I stumbled upon a post on my current favorite blog about this very topic while searching for support in my quest to rid my family of it's immune system issues!!! It gave me motivation to do things slowly, but stay on track and stay motivated!

  1. Hi Missy! Thanks for your comment on my blog :-) You are right, we do have a lot in common! I'm definitely a drama queen and my hubby gives me those "you are crazy" looks all the time! LOL!
    I started to make the shift to healthier, safer care products 6 years ago when I was pregnant with my first kiddo...and you are right, it is overwhelming! But baby steps are the right way to go, and it does get easier. I've also learned to to not totally freak out...I do what I can and the best that I can at this time :-)

    P.S. I answered your questions on my blog :-)
