Focusing on My Baby’s Birthday Instead of Migraine

Focusing on My Baby's Birthday Instead of Migraine

This week I’m focusing on my baby’s birthday instead of migraine!  He now has to hold up 2 hands to show how old he is. Each year seems to be going faster and I need things to slow down.

With the crazy snowstorms and thaw around here, I’ve been really fighting this month.  Migraine robs me of so many things and time is one of them.  This week I have gotten frustrated that my meds aren’t working.  I’m angry that I’m forced to lay and ice my head while I have so many other things to be doing.  Being sick is a waste of my time and it’s more than annoying!

So I’m focusing on my baby’s birthday and the blessing that he is.

By the end of the week, I’ll have a 6-year-old.  No longer my favorite preschooler (and he had some competition since I teach there).  Now he’s my bus riding, kindergarten learning, still my superhero little man.

Until then……check out

Having Small Children and Migraine

Does anyone else get emotional around their child’s birthday? I typically am stressed, trying to cover up a migraine attack and trying to make the best of the day that I can. My goal is to make his day so special that they don’t see my pain.  As a mom, I reflect on the day I gave birth and thank my body for giving me my greatest gifts. My mentality of my focusing on my baby’s birthday is always all over the place.

A small thing that brings hope with Migraine is you!

I typically talk about the big things that give me hope. My children, husband, family, and friends just to name a few. But we all know it’s the little things that count too.

    Wishing your cool little man a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! =]
    I hope the migraines can give you a little peace for his celebrations, even though that may be wishful thinking.

    I have yet to celebrate one of their birthdays without a migraine before, during and/or after. Events and parties always get me. But here’s to hoping ???? thank you!
