A Good Night

It's amazing how a good night of sleep can make you feel - they have been few and far between since kids and especially in the last 1 1/2 years. And so it feels nothing short of a miracle that all three boys slept all the way through the night last night - 9p. - 7:30a.! To top it off, they all slept in the same room. Amazing! Let's hope that trend continues although I'm not holding my breath. :)

On a completely different note, I wish I had gotten a picture of this but we have training chopsticks and watching one of my boys proudly master them last night was absolutely adorable. Interestingly, all of my kids love Chinese food!

Also, thank you for the lotion recommendations - I will definitely be trying out some of them! And one of my kiddos has a little eczema (we know it's genetic) so I will be using those recommendations, too.

I'm ready to tackle this day!

Our teen had eczema when he was younger. I'm trying to remember the lotion we used. He uneventually grew out of it.

Alaina -

We battle sever eczema with Caroline constantly and have been to countless doctors and numerous treatments.

The most recent eczema treatment I heard was to apply extra virgin olive oil to the eczema patches. I haven't tried it b/c Caroline's eczema is too severe right now for that to work. Next time we have a minor outbreak though, I intend to try olive oil.

Congratulations on a full night of sleep!

If you find a good lotion for eczema, let me know. E has it all over here. Poor kiddos!
