A recent entry on a fellow bloggers' site got me thinking (gotta give credit where credit is due MCK!).

Life is really all about perspective...and to be honest right now I have NONE! My emotions are completely out of control (well that's an exaggeration but they are kind of out of whack). So...bear with me!

But there are so many things that I, as a mother, choose as a "battle" and so few that I choose to not have as a "battle". I consider myself a fairly "easy going" mother, but realized that when I put it in perspective the pendulum swings quite higher on the "battle" side. These may be battles with my children, my husband, fellow mothers (whom may not even be aware I am having a "battle" with them) or family; most of all I feel these battles are with myself however! I choose these "battles" and can just as easily choose not to have them.

So as if I need more things to think/pray/concentrate on daily...I am making another slight resolution in my life. I resolve to remind myself that my emotions/reactions and alike are a choice of my own. A choice that I can change for the most part.

Written by Alicia Overby - Founder & President of Baby Elephant Ears

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.

After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
