Despite my efforts to the contrary, I find myself sitting at the computer with a knot in my stomach this morning reading over the "possible side effects" of an eczema ointment I have been using on both my kiddies since birth. Why is that I can clearly see the words "ONLY IN VERY RARE CASES," and still jump to the conclusion that because of my poor mothering or whatever, my sweet children will most assuredly grow third eyes or something from this cream. Are we, as mothers, doomed to carry around our guilt buckets full of misgivings and should haves? I spot treat my son's weird winter outbreaks of eczema and worry about it. That is just how I roll.
Have a good weekend and stay safe.
