Ear pulling VS Ear infection, Heat rash VS Eczema

Dear mothers,

Q: Sethia has been pulling on his ears a lot. How do I know whether he has an ear infection, started teething, or simply found his ears? Thank you for your insights. :)

A: Dulu Alex juga suka gitu, Grace. Sampe kadang kecakar kuku nya and tergores telinga nya. Normal sih, ada yg bilang kalo itu gejala teething =) Just make sure that his nails are short and not sharp =)

Kalo ear infection, biasanya ada fever, running nose or smelly liquid keluar dr telinga. So kalo Sethia ga nangis2 tanpa sebab and ga ada
gejala2 yg saya sebut di atas than seharusnya sih OK and normal =)

Hope it helps =)

A. Selama ga fever, ato nangis2 gitu should b okay grace, mungkin dia explore aja.

Ear pulling VS Ear infection. Also, here.

Trondheim's summer this year is rather mild; I believe it is of an average of 13 deg C. However, Sethia has been sweating a lot especially on hot days of 28 deg C even though he is already wearing clothing very lightly and minimally. He also has heat rashes spreading on both cheeks. In this Baby Center link I read directions on how to treat heat rash, but I would appreciate it if you can suggest other ways - esp. more traditional treatments if there are any. Thanks a lot! :)

Boss not yet

Mama's little Boss - just almost. >.<

Never reject my son's father

Last Sabbath I made possibly the greatest mistake a wife and mother could ever do: I attempted to protect my son from his own father. Sethia was spending time with Adi alone. One second, Sethia burst out crying; my ears pricked up, I left whatever I was doing, rushed over, just too eagerly to 'rescue' and snatch over Sethia from his father. Worse, the words that came out from my mouth were harsh: "What did you do to our son?!" Adi was hurt. I could only regret it bitterly later on.

It is by God's forgiveness in Christ alone, we continue to forgive each other. It is by His grace alone, we continue to give grace to each other amidst our failings. It is precisely our poor love as humans that expresses our need and sets a platform for Everlasting Love - that is of God.

This potato tart with cheese is my way of saying sorry to husband. :) What are other ways we can do to apologize to our spouses? ;)
