This little mask is a very real part of our lives. ✨
When you have a child with Asthma and no one can really tell you exactly what causes his flare ups- all you can do is your best in the moment.
We have had SO MANY conversations around what to do, how to help, do we use the medicine everyday, do we not use it, what are we going to try this time-- "if only we knew his exact triggers"
During these times you don't really sleep as parents, your life is directly geared around what's best for one child- as a Mom of 3 that doesn't always feel fair- but we have learned to be a good team and show the other boys how to best parent a sick child. •
Here's what this piece of my sons health and life is teaching us as parents and as a family.
Pure LOVE must be at the foundation of every choice we make, every meal I cook, every supplement, vitamin, every choice for a sleepover, missed school day, hockey practice etc..
What I know to be true is that when his body feels loved, heard and nurtured in the most compassionate way he heals quicker.
Learning his love language as a child and how HE FEELS HIS BEST- makes such a difference when he's down with Asthma.
Oils are such a big part in the LOVE and how I am supported as Mama ( mind, body,spirit!) also how we support his body and airways!
Alec and I are deeply researching inflammatory diets for him and creating big changes in our family's eating so we ALL benefit from what one little soul is teaching us!
Only lessons- never problems.✨
