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 party 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.

Focusing on My Baby’s Birthday Instead of Migraine

I’ve been fighting this month with the crazy snowstorms and thaw around here. 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 do. 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. He is no longer my favorite preschooler (and he has had some competitions 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 my day. My goal is to make his day so unique 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 focusing on my baby’s birthday is always all over the place.

Unfortunately, I missed the first Thursday of the month due to a migraine. Ironically, my “thankful” for the week was probably the culprit for causing the migraine. But so worth it…….. World…

Miles for Migraine Cleveland 2020

Miles for Migraine Cleveland 2020 was scheduled for Saturday July 18. Due to COVID-19 we will be doing our regular event virtually. It will look a lot different than Miles for Migraine 2019 and 2018. It looks a lot more like virtual 2017 before we were adding many cities around the United States. I am sad that we…

    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.
