I have been wondering about life perspective lately. you know when you were little kids you saw certain things in certain way and then you became teenagers and you saw those things differently. And then you became young adults and your view on the same thing changed again. Now you are an actual adult and you look back and you just can't believe in how many different ways you saw this thing. And it's a bit funny how clear it looks now and how much you can't understand that you didn't see it this way but instead you saw it through some fog or dark glasses. I am not sure if this makes you cry or laugh or maybe both. Sometimes it makes you sad because it feels like you just wasted so many years of your life.. and then it makes you laugh because... well you don't even know why it makes you laugh. But you know for sure that you wish you would have seen this thing for what it really is this whole time. I guess it's called life experience...

the christmas tree that was outside

My daughter started snuffling one day last week. The next day it turned into more snuffles, and it was followed by red watery eyes and dripping nose. When finally third day her whole face swelled up and had red blotches all over. By that time i knew she wasn't getting sick. everything looked more like allergies. Now the only I had to do was figure out the reason for her allergy. This was first time she showed any symptoms close to this. What changed in our surroundings? The only that came to mind was our real... gorgeous... christmas tree. I googled christmas tree allergies and sure enough - it looked like I got it right. because we were just about to leave for a 3 day trip to a waterpark, we decided to wait with the tree distraction. After 2 days, her face cleared up and she was no longer looking like she was crying for many hours straight... And it is now with a sad heart that i have to say that we had to move our poor tree out of our house and it has a new residence - on our porch. We were all oh so sad but B is good now and can breath freely. As much as I am sad about it being out there... I was pleasantly surprised about the tree view tonight! it made my evening!!!
