Diapers, wipes, baby wash, electrolyte solution, Walgreens Well Beginnings line has got you covered for all of your growing baby’s ages and stages.  The diapers have super soft elastic waist and side panels, making for a super comfy fit for baby, and you can count on the plush inner liner, which features natural botanicals like vitamin E and aloe, for soothing baby’s bottom.  Diaper sizes range from newborn to size 6, and they are truly a steal, compared to the big name brand prices!

The sensitive wipes are made from a unique 3 layer fabric, specially designed with two quilted layers for superior cleansing on baby’s skin, but also strength, not tearing and leaving you with messy hands.  They are also hypoallergenic, alcohol free and dermatologist approved, not to mention, another great steal, compared to the big name brands!

Well Beginnings baby wash is 100% soap free, dye free and ph balanced.  It is gentle and safe to use all over your baby’s sensitive skin, and won’t dry out or cause tears.  It is also 100% paraben and phthalate free!  Definitely an amazing deal and a no brainer, when it comes to washing and protecting baby’s skin!

The Electrolyte solution is something that every mama should have on hand because when you need it, you won’t want to be without it!  This is such a great bargain compared to the big name brand, and it works just as well!  Now that the kids are all heading back to school, you can bet that all of the nasty little bugs and viruses will be coming home with them.  Little ones are especially prone to picking up these yucky bugs and they tend to dehydrate very easily with the tummy bugs.  Having electrolyte solution on hand, and especially dye free, is an amazing tool to helping your baby feel better soon!

Best of all, all of these items and more are all available at Walgreens, your trusted one stop shop, and all are made in the USA!

Poison

It all started with a silly dream.

I have been restless lately, battling insomnia and having vivid nightmares the last several nights.  This morning, I was startled awake by my dream, when in it, I was bitten by a baby cobra snake.  It was very dramatic, and thinking of it now, I can still feel the stinging pain that ultimately woke me from the dream world.

I filed that away to Google later, and went about my morning routine.

When I did find the time to search for the hidden meaning, the relevance of the serpentine rude awakening, I found that dreaming of snakes, and especially of bites and fear with them, can be brought on on the verge of an emotional breakthrough.  Working through something that has subconciously been eating away at you, stumbling upon an “aha moment”.  I thought on that for a few minutes before being called away to let the dogs out, brush Sara’s hair, feed the fish, etc.

The next time I found myself at the keyboard, I stumbled upon an article about toxic family members, and the lasting effects those relationships can have on a person.  As I read on, several light bulbs went off in my head, shining light on something I have been guilty of and hiding in the shadows for as long as I can remember.

When you grow up in a toxic environment, you are learning how to be toxic yourself.  The poison seeps into your veins through the constant years of marinating, learning to hate, distrust, hold grudges, be abusive, anxious, fearful and having unhealthy relationships.   You end up being programmed for misery.

Look at the people who have lived on toxic land, radiation in their soil, leeching through and poisoning them, causing illness and cancers, even death.  Living in an emotionally toxic environment is the same!  And it is highly contagious!

All of the poison, all of the bitterness and anger, the distrust and low self esteem had been leeching off of me for years, in some ways more pronounced than others.  I have essentially been teaching my children through my poor examples, to have all of the horrible, miserable traits that have only caused me pain and agony since being exposed to them in my early childhood.

This revelation has reduced me to tears.

I have been very, very careful over the years to parent in a way that was very different than my upbringing, but the potent venom has still slithered around and found hiding spots in my home.  I have seen it and I know that I brought it in.

This is not a death sentence, the cycle can be broken, the damage reversed.

Protect yourself from toxic people!!  Family members especially, the damage is real and whether you see it or not, it will bleed from your very existence and taint your loved ones and your home.  Distancing yourself from the offenders is the only way to truly heal yourself.  It’s hard, and not guilt free, but I know with my heart that it is the only way to be sincerely free from the disease.  I can love them from a distance, but my harmony with myself and my husband and my children trump any feelings of guilt they may try to bestow upon me, blemishing my recovery and blissful existence in a  toxin free environment.

So dreaming of snakes can be evidence of an emotional breakthrough.  Once I got off my knees and dried the tears, I couldn’t help but laugh at how insanely true that simple little sentence has proven to be.
