Much of parenting is improvising. Like today, when my little guy developed severe diaper rash from the amoxicillin. In case you haven’t experienced this, amoxicillin can lead to odor-free diarrhea that tends to sit in the diaper longer, because … well, you don’t smell it. This, as you can imagine, leads to a nasty case of diaper rash. My poor little baby has such a bad case of it that he refused to sit in his high-chair for lunch. So, we improvised by letting him stand and filling his bib with food.
Improvising happens on a daily basis around here, as I’m sure it does at your house, too. For example, you can’t run to the grocery store for the ingredient you forgot, so you improvise. My mom is the most amazing improviser in the kitchen. She may only have zucchini, lime juice, and baking soda and somehow she makes cinnamon rolls.
I would love to hear how you have improvised in your house. I’ll put together a list of the top improvises for a future blog.
