Six months ago, my then 1.5 year old Son & I made the long journey back to my home town of Melbourne Australia to celebrate my Mum’s birthday. We visited for 3 weeks, and while we were there Miles Storm developed a scaly rash all over his body and face. I really did not think anything of it at the time. I figured it was dry skin due to the climate change and would eventually clear up.
An Apple A Day Keeps the Doctor Away. Well that is what I was always told by my parents when I was a little girl. I did not really understand what it meant back then, but I still tried to eat an Apple A Day because I did not really like going to the Doctor so much. Funny right.
You cannot go wrong eating apples (so eat them as much as you can) – they are free of fat, sodium & cholesterol, low in calories and full of fiber. It is always preferable to eat apples untouched with the skin on as it is chock-a-block of disease-fighting antioxidants. Not to mention, apples are the perfect carry-anywhere snack food, perfect for little hands & big hands alike.
You can try all you want to prepare for the perfect pregnancy, but 99% of the time it does not work out as planned. I say 99%, as I have one girlfriend who went to the hospital on her due date and her baby was delivered on-time and exactly as the Doctor told her it would be. Since becoming a Mother, I have met hundreds of other Mums and I have only heard that story one time.
So, straight off the plane from an amazingly wonderful 4 week family holiday to Croatia, Montenegro and the United Kingdom I am back full-swing into being a Stay-At-Home-Mummy. And, what a whirlwind it is. I am juggling insane jetlag, finally pulling together the Open House of the Brooklyn Chapter of the Holistic Moms Network, planning a 10 city marketing campaign through my boutique agency Honey Bee MGMT, organizing Miles Storm’s 2nd birthday, writing this Blog post, finding time to exercise and today deal with my little boy’s first day at school! I mean, there is just not enough hours in the day is there?
