our days

The last few days I've been trying to find that delicate balance between nurturing ill, fevered children and keeping healthy, active children stimulated with play and exploration.

Whenever sickness reigns upon our home, I tend to open our essential oils cabinet much more.  Wintergreen and frankincense in a nice warm bath, frankincense rubbed on congested chests, Thieves on the feet of the well to strengthen their immune system(and boost the sick), and peppermint on the feet of the fevered.  Between Max and Ruby episodes on iTunes and the forever reminder for twin toddlers to "cover their mouths!", we're getting by.

I'll be back tomorrow with hopefully healthier wee ones...
