Tips on Recovering from Not-So Magical Days

A few days ago, Soren had a pretty rough day. With four teeth coming in and becoming more and more daring with his movements, the day was filed with mini-accidents and a not-so-happy baby.

Since Soren has been learning to walk and standing as much as possible, he’s become so much more prone to boo-boos. Poor buddy! I absolutely hate seeing him so sad. The day started off with a crawling accident. Going a little too fast for his own good and missing the part where he puts his hand in front of him. He hit his face on the floor and gave us a good cry. The second time was when he was standing and trying to walk to me, he proceeded to leap forward and hurt his lip on his new teeth. And finally, the day ended with another fall, hurting his lip even more on his teeth. This time he cried hard. It made me so sad seeing him hurt. I started crying myself. We just sat there for a little while cuddling and crying. It was a rough day for little Soren.

How do we recover from those not-so magical days and cheer up our little ones when things are looking down? Here are a few things that helped turn our day around and end on a happy note:

My Mommy Wish List of Disney Baby Items

Now that I have two kids, Christmas is ALL about them! Even though they are only 2 years old and 9 months old and have no idea what they “want” for Christmas, I can imagine their faces lighting up when they wake up Christmas morning and realize there are gifts for them!

Well, why can’t those gifts help out Mommy as well? That’s one of my favorite things about Disney Baby products: Not only are they recognizable for our little ones because of the characters on them, but I can rest assured that the products are safe and helpful to parents. Examples: spill proof sippy cups and super soft plush toys that don’t have any small parts that could come off. When you are a busy mom like I am and seem to have your hands full all day long, these types of gifts are super handy!

It was hard to narrow my list down to a few of my favorite Disney Baby items that I want my kids to have for Christmas, but I somehow got it down to seven. Check them out!

What Baby REALLY Wants for Christmas

Celebrating your little one’s first Christmas this year? Want to know what’s on his or her Christmas list? Well, judging my by own babe, she probably won’t get too excited about the ornament you bought her or her super cute new outfit either.
