This past month, my four-year-old landed a second-degree burn on his leg, thanks to a cup of accidentally spilled hot cocoa. Thankfully I had an herbal burn salve in our medicine cabinet that was a perfect remedy for this painful situation.
Now isn’t that just the way things tend to happen? Kids always seem to get hurt when mom isn’t right there watching them. Here I was, stealing some peaceful moments nursing my one month old while my three older children enjoyed a snack, when all of a sudden, I’m startled out of my cuddle session by a blood-curdling scream… that lasted… and lasted… and lasted.
