Cocktail and Mocktail Days

Today’s adventures with two under two involved Logan sticking a pea in his nostril during lunch. I saw him do it, freaked out and went running over to try and get it out. Instead, I knocked it further up his nose. I panicked a little and didn’t know what to do. I grabbed my phone and thought… do I call 911? Ryan? the doctor’s office? Logan didn’t seem distressed so I quickly dialed our doctors office. I spoke with a nurse who helped calm me down. She told me to lay him down, plug the non-blocked nostril and then blow air in his mouth kind of like CPR. I tried and this did not work. Logan was trying to bite me, laughing and did not have a clue what I was trying to do. It was like I was wrestling a mini gator. I gave up on that method. I remembered the infant snot sucker and grabbed that next. Logan willingly let me insert this into his nostril but no luck getting it out. The nurse said he was fine taking a nap and just to keep an eye on him. He woke up from his nap normal and happy. After dinner, he was running circles in the living room and then stopped to catch his breath. He came walking over to me and handed me a smashed up pea. I am pretty sure this was the one lodged in his nostril. Such a big sigh of relief. So time for a cocktail?

Life with two under two can make you start that daily countdown to cocktail hour early each day. However, times have changed. I would rather use a workout or stretching session to destress and enjoy a mocktail. Don’t get me wrong – I still like a glass of wine or cocktail some nights.

Ocean Spray┬« has launched a new line of juice mocktails that are inspired by your favorite cocktails. The three flavors are Cranberry Peach Bellini, Cranberry Sangria, and Tropical Citrus Paradise. I have tried each of them and they are all delicious! What I love most is that they are made with real fruit juice and no preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. They are the perfect drink for that pregnant mama that wants a cocktail or for the nursing mama limiting her alcohol. However, if you have a day like my “pea” day they make amazing mixers with some sparkling water, wine or liquor!
