I Don’t Have A Title For This Post

WOW, thursday is already here.
i can’t believe i’ve being away from my blog and my favourite bloggers for nearly a week. okay i can believe it because i’ve been busy writing my YA novel. i am pleased with how is turning out. i have to complete 20 chapters for my writers’ group by end of August.
so i’ve been the boring lady over here, writing, looking after AOI and watching crap tv shows: Love In The Wild, Take Me Out. But also catching one of my favourite shows So You Think You Can Dance – I love that show. So far my favourites are George, Eliana and Cyrus (he would have being on my wall if i was a teen – he is the man).
this morning we had a scare.
AOI had an allergic reaction for eating scrambled eggs and cheese. few minutes after eating the eggs her eyes and cheeks started to swell – she looked like a boxer baby. she was itchy, hot and red. she was very uncomfortable. i thought it was the heat, because the rash on her back had turn red. i cold sponged bath her. after the cold bath it seemed she wasn’t her restless anymore but she wouldn’t stop scratching herself, hair and rubbing her eyes. i kept giving her water and breastmilk. then hubby remembered that the only thing we did different today was giving her eggs. we called the hospital but on our way there she looked much better and fell asleep so we decided to go back home.
she is back to her bubbly self again, turning pages and crawling everywhere, though her eyes are still a little bit swollen her body is not hot and red anymore.
how is your week so far?


  1. Be careful with food allergies. Moo has a lot of them. Food allergies not only cause swelling on the outside but inside as well. Thankfully we keep her epipens and benadryl handy.

    Glad to hear that you have made progress on your novel. Are you going to publish it once it's done? I have to admit that I have been slacking on my third book. Hoping to get some work done on it tonight though.

  2. How scary! I'm glad little AOI is ok. Good luck with your continued efforts on your novel.

  3. Oh no! So scary! I'm glad she is OK.

    Happy to hear that your book is coming together :)

  4. What an ordeal! I am glad she is okay. dairy, eggs, nuts, soy, and corn are common food allergies for babies, especially under 1 yr old. Good chance she will outgrow it.
    I look forward to hearing about your YA novel.

    As for my family, we are just chillin' in Cali. It's been 6 days since we moved to the Bay Area and we are loving it.

    p.s. I like your post title

  5. My daughter is allergic to tree nuts (almonds, walnuts, and pecans). You should make sure that you take her to her doctor as soon as you can and have them run an allergy test on her. If she is allergic and she has more, the next allergic reaction will be worse.

    Last year, we had no idea that my daughter was allergic until she ate a cookie that contained walnuts. She ended up in the emergency room. She now has an epi-pen that she is to use if she accidentally eats something that contains nuts.

    So, please take the time to take her to her physician.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion, we will have her tested for any allergy.

  6. oh wow that sounds so scary...im glad she is alright but i agree with Sharon about taking her to the physician just to make sure! precaution is always important!

  7. that must have been so tough for you my goodness. do you think you will give her an allergy test to see what else she's allergic to? so do you think it's a dairy allergy or an egg? allergies/intolerances are so crazy you just never know.


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
