the good, the bad, the ugly.

We have spent weeks with the sickies bouncing from one kid to the next. When I think we are in the clear, Devin randomly wakes up with a stye.
{this is the stye on the mend.}

One night was particularly rough with Sabrina...I literally didn't sleep all night. I think the last time I pulled an all-nighter I was in High school. It wasn't near as fun as I remember it being.

I jokingly put a status update on my Facebook about needing chocolate and Coke stat, and you would never believe what happened...
{I have gotten really good at rocking two babies!}

I heard a knock on my door not much later and my neighbor {and friend} brought over chocolate milk and donuts for my entire family. A Coke and candy bar for good measure too. Even though I was joking, I was thankful...and you better believe we ate it all.

Another friend that day drove from American Fork {also read A REALLY LONG DRIVE} to bring me doTERRA oils to help heal my kids. I have never been a believer, but I have been changed. I think their diffuser is heaven sent. Savannah usually takes a good month to get over a cough, and it is horrible at night...that diffuser helps soooo much. If you have never tried doTERRA, give it a whirl. So many of my friends have different oils they use for headaches, coughs, etc. I am excited to get on this bandwagon.
I do not love having sick babies, but I learned so much this time around. I have good people in my life. I need to be more thoughtful. doTERRA rocks my world, and totally works. AND no matter how bad it is, we always survive. :)

You know I think you are about the only person that I would take your word for with the doTERRA thing.

I'm not sure I'm sold on doTERRA just yet. Maybe I'm stubborn?

Breathe is what you start out trying with a cough, kicks Vicks vapor rubs trash. :)

you may have just made me consider thinking about trying doTERRA. That is sort of a miracle in and of itself.

I hope all of the babies are feeling much, much better.

I need to be more thoughtful too.

So you like the diffuser then? I've been debating buying one (they are expensive!) but I hate having sick kids so I want to get one. Maybe I need to break down and buy one. Right now I just rub On Guard into their feet. I don't touch nasty boy feet. :)
