Don’t let migraines destroy your life – learn some tips from

I created this post as part of a campaign by Teva Pharmaceuticals. I received an American Express gift card for participating.

Possibly one of the worst maladies a mom can suffer though is a migraine headache when we’ve got littles to take care of. Sadly, migraine headaches fall into a category unto themselves and are far worse than any “regular sized” headache. Migraine headaches rank up in the top 3 of the world’s most prevalent medical conditions.

If you’re like the other 36 million Americans who suffer from migraines, you would experience several symptoms like throbbing pain, sensitivity to sound, sensitivity to light and maybe even some nausea. Now add in a baby that likes to use your furniture as her personal drum kit and you’ve got a bad start to a bad day.

Migraines are for real - #sponsored #MoreToMigraine

Out of my 2 kids, wee little Melody is the one who’s the noise queen. She loves it when her dad plays loud guitar music and squeals with delight when she bangs her wooden toys on the metal side table! That being said, a migraine can be a huge hindrance in giving my kids the attention they deserve.

I mean, how can you get mad at that little face??


So what would you do if you were stricken with a nasty migraine headache? I’ve been known to wear my sunglasses inside and take steamy showers in the dark in effort to make myself feel better. I’m no doctor, those are things I like to do because they work out well for me. Only you and your doctor will truly know what’s best for your situation, so be sure to consult with one if you suffer often.

We moms have too much to take care of to give in. Learn more about how to beat migraine headaches by visiting .

Love comes in many forms – Can’t wait for The Choice to come out!

Carving out some time for me #AD #TheChoiceMovie

There’s something wonderful about preparing myself for a bath where I know I’m going to close the door and check out for a few. I don’t usually have the luxury of soaking in peace for very long, so when I get the chance I like to take full advantage. This week I was determined to get some time to myself, soaking and reading a favorite book. It’s one of those simple pleasures that any mom can appreciate. Luckily for me, my husband knows this and takes over with the kids when I need to step away. When you’re married, love comes in many forms and it’s not always hugs and kisses. I always oblige when he wants to go to a concert with a buddy and I fully expect the same when I need time away. For us, love is having that mutual understanding for each other when the other has had enough and needs a break.For us, it works and keeps us functioning as sane parents :)

Then the other night I saw a window of opportunity, perfect timing or so I thought. It was just after dinner with JP was quietly watching TV and Melody was playing happily in her playpen that I thought I could sneak off to draw a hot bath for myself . Everybody was fed and occupied, so I thought I’d grab my chance while I could.

“Tonight I’m taking a bath and I’m going to lock the door, so be sure that the house is burning down if you expect me to open it for any reason” I told my husband as I hurried off and headed to my little retreat in the next room.

The book I was about to delve in was one of those books that they made into a movie –  the new Nicholas Sparks movie, The Choice that’s coming out Feb..5th. If you’re one for tear-jerkers, you’ll love this one. It’s all about being in love, difficult choices and believing in destiny to find your perfect match.

With my lit candles and scented bubbles, I was 1000 miles away hearing subtle baby noises in the distance. It got noisier and noisier until finally I heard a firm knock on the bathroom door.

“……What it is?” I asked, hesitating.

“Your daughter crapped her diaper,”  He replied. “I need your help”

And with that, bath time was over.

Valentine’s day is coming! What will you be getting for your honey this year? Personally, I love it when my husband points me in the right direction by giving me a compiled wish list so I know exactly what his heart desires when it’s time to buy him a gift. I don’t know about you, but gifting-holidays like these are much less disappointing when you prepare your gift-tor with what you would like.
