I like to eat a healthy diet.
Especially after being so ill all winter.
I'm way more conscious about what I put into my body, and I've become a bit paranoid about getting sick again.
In fact, I feel like I'm always worried about Lulu or myself catching something-to the point where I feel like something is always lurking around every corner.
Is this normal?
now that I'm a mother am I supposed to be paranoid about colds and bugs?
I'll be reading a blog and hear about someone being sick and start panicking..."is there something going around the city again??"
This isn't rational is it?
I try to be in the moment as much as possible but I find myself thinking "what if lulu gets sick next week and I'm working on a job?"
I don't really have the type of job that I can call in sick to.
It's made me so reluctant to take on extra projects or make plans actually.
But that's life I guess.
It's by far the biggest challenge (for me) about being a parent.
But originally I was going to write about food.
Which always seems to pacify any anxiety I might be feeling.
Seriously, one bite of chocolate and all my worries seem to melt away.
Needless to say I've been on a bit of a chocolate bender these past few days.
Aside from chocolate there are other food favorites that always seem to make me feel better, like this.
pass the sausage please and the vitamin C, D and E.
