ped. It's the whole burping thing that's misleading as when you're burping them thinking in a logical way that would mean you're trying to make a burp come up, I just think they should change the name because these things are hard to grasp when you have baby brain.
A scary thought for any parent especially a mummy but I knew this was inevitable.I thought it would be a good idea to put up an extra happy pic of Cali to mask how much I'm actually shitting myself.
So from the time Cali was born she was very snuffley and a very noisy breather and has been snoring hard pretty much since birth. After seeing the doctors they said she has asthma, but I have asthma I don’t struggle as much as her so I got her a referral to ENT where after doing various tests and x-rays they told me she had enlarged adenoids. At that point that meant nothing to me because I was thinking wtf is an adenoid? Basically it’s the bit above your tonsils between the nasal passage and the throat that along with your tonsils is there to keep germs out. They then said children tend to have big adenoids but they shrink as they get older so they didn’t feel the need to operate on her at such a young age (she was only 2) they said to keep an eye and wait until she starts school.
So I’ve been watching her and nothing’s changed, she still really struggles to breathe through her nose and almost exclusively breathes through her mouth. I used to think that she just wasn’t an affectionate child as she would refuse to kiss me and would always prefer me to kiss her but then I realized that because she breathes through her mouth when she does kiss me I guess to some extent she’s holding her breath and then gasps for air after. Even things like eating her food are an ordeal as she can’t close her mouth and eat and now I’m wondering if she can actually taste her food or if she just has favourite foods based on their texture and not their taste.
Night times are scary because

Primark recently and saw a load of very cute summer stuff for the kids (and for me too) and seeing as I've learned my lesson from previous disappointments I decided to buy everything there and then instead of procrastinating and coming back and everything being gone. There's a a very good selection of boys and girls stuff but I'm particularly loving the boys summer stuff. They have a lot of cartoon based summer clothes like Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Batman and Spiderman and picked up a load of vests and shorts for RD. Although the average price of shorts was
