Pink Peonies & Blogging Essentials Giveaway Part III

So, I’ve been a really bad blogger lately. This last week Beckham came down with RSV and it was pure misery. Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets depressed when their kids are sick? Anyone else have this problem? I just wanted to take his place so badly. Poor thing was just miserable, and life pretty much got put on hold until he was better.

One thing I have realized about myself as a parent, is that I always play by the rules. Sometimes it can be a little overboard. I mean, Cayman didn’t even go to nursery until he was 2 1/2, because I was too paranoid to leave him or risk him getting sick. I hardly took Beckham outside of the house his first year, as to not risk him getting sick. Its scary having a micro preemie, because the slightest cold can send them back to the NICU. Just when I was thinking we were in the clear with spring coming, he gets RSV. Lets just say I cried all morning and afternoon. Worst parent award right here <————- I just love this little boy so much, and im glad to see he is better. Still a little sniffly, but for the most part he’s back to normal. Let’s just say we cannot wait for warmer weather!

Speaking of warmer weather, hope you all enjoy this spring look I put together for ProFlowers. Nothing says spring like florals in my opinion. In this case pink peonies. Also, make sure to enter the Blogger essential giveaway Part III, for your chance to win a complete blog makeover!! See details below. 🙂

    Ahhh, nothing worse than sick kids. But, don't blame yourself. We were SUPER careful when Stella was a baby, and she still got RSV. No fun! On another note, love your outfit, and nice to meet you from the Utah Chic Bloggers!

    Undeniably, me
