I’m SMILING IT FORWARD™ because right now I have a happy and healthy boy! You see the past few days he hasn’t been feeling too well. I guess with the weather changing from warm to cool, he caught one of those dreaded colds. It’s never easy when our little ones are sick. Often a 2 year old can’t even understand why they feel so horrible. It’s hard to watch!
This last cold was a doozy! Poor little guy actually ended up with a fever. On the upside though, with the help of TYLENOL® and lots of momma hugs, the illness was short lived. Hearing his giggles and seeing a big grin on his face is exactly what I needed to put a smile back on my face!
Yes, this momma was super happy to see her little man back to his usual self in no time. As soon as he was feeling better, we decided to spend a good part of the day playing out on our balcony. He had such a happy grin on his face, I couldn’t help but snap this photo of my smiling baby. No parent every wants to watch their precious child go through any illness, no matter how big or small. It’s just painful to watch! It’s always such a joy when they feel better and return to their happy go lucky and joyful selves! Sadly not all parents are lucky enough to see their child feel better and those smiles return to their little faces. Very often children find themselves almost “living” in a hospital throughout their illnesses or their parents do not have the means to provide them with the proper medicine to feel better. Luckily there are amazing programs to help bring smiles back to the faces of these children. One in particular is the SMILING IT FORWARD™ campaign.
